It’s appalling how easily this Governor lies. His abuse of facts and the truth is unprecedented in Wisconsin politics. Not since “Tail Gunner” Joe McCarthy has a Wisconsin politician left such a trail of slime and filth in the name of the people of Wisconsin.
Sam Walker, a criminology professor at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, was quoted in the piece saying the scandal raised questions about the Milwaukee Police Department’s procedures.
The professor believes the governor has misused his quote, saying the “failure of leadership” he referred to has nothing to do with Barrett.
“The governor misrepresented what I said,” he said in an interview with The Huffington Post.
“My comment was about the police department strictly,” he added. “Mayors don’t understand these things. They just accept what their police chiefs and police departments give them. … The governor was absolutely wrong in saying the mayor was directly responsible for this.”
What does it take, Republicans, for you to repudiate this awful man?
