Comes from Jud @ Uppity Wisconsin: Detailing how Scott Walker met with the Koch brothers secretly last year in Colorado.

The swashbuckling 61-year-old was the main attraction in an hour-and-a-half conversation with Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson along with four other governors: New Mexico’s Susana Martinez, South Carolina’s Nikki Haley, Virginia’s Bob McDonnell and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker. He and the others were in town for the Republican Governors Assowciation’s two-day executive roundtable convened by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.

I assumed that Hooper must have been mistaken– Walker meeting with the Koch brothers after all the grief he’s received over his taped call with the fake David Koch?!?

So, I contacted Hooper. He says it was no mistake– that he indeed has confirmation Walker was at the Koch event held the weekend of June 25 and 26.

Walker’s public schedule that weekend included a curiously early morning event at Devil’s Lake on the 25th to celebrate the park’s 100th birthday. And in the mid-afternoon of the 26th he had a budget signing ceremony up in Green Bay– meaning he could have had time to fly out to Colorado, attend part of the event– perhaps the Saturday night festivities– and fly back the following morning.

He would have probably needed a private plane, though: There is confirmation that Diane Hendricks and John Menard, two of Walker’s major contributors, both flew their private planes out to Colorado to attend the event, so he could have hitched a ride with either of them.

Hmmm the Koch brothers said jump and our Governor said “How High Sir?” and immediately fit in his schedule to fly to CO to receive his marching orders. It was nice of their operatives Hendricks and Menards to provide the transportation. Since this was an obvious political meeting, doesn’t Scott Walker need to claim this?
