On September 9, the blog on Congressman Marc Pocan’s campaign website posted an entry noting the Pocan for Congress campaign put in a request to the Wisconsin Department of Administration for records pertaining to Gov. Scott Walker’s air travel from June 4, 2014 to September 5, 2014.
Just hours after the Pocan for Congress campaign made their request, right-wing smear group Media Trackers, a supposedly “independent” media (and I use that term loosely) organization, filed their own request for Congressman Pocan’s travel schedule through September 1.
At 1:33 p.m. EST/12:33 p.m. CST that same day, an allegedly independent, disreputable right-wing organization, Media Trackers, sent Representative Mark Pocan’s official office in Washington a request for his official travel schedule, through September 1. That request came just hours after the Pocan campaign made the request of Governor Walker’s office.
For a supposedly “independent” right-wing organization, Media Trackers sure did seem to have some inside information regarding the request for Gov. Walker’s travel records by Congressman Pocan’s reelection campaign, given how quickly Media Trackers made their request of Congressman Pocan.
But remember folks…..there’s no coordination between Gov. Walker, his staffers, and the assorted right-wing organizations who are only too eager to do Gov. Walker’s bidding.

Isn’t this man and the people he surrounds himself with about as sleazy as any politician you have ever come across. He can’t simply comply with a request or even a law….. he has to circumvent it or attack the person making the request.
Fighting fire with fire is all that’s happening. It’s silly season…
Some deep thinking this morning hey, IG? No difference between requesting travel records of the subject of a John Doe investigation running for president instead of running the state in the public interest, and a well understood to be political hit squad asking the same of a US Congressional Representative, likely looking out for the best interests of his constituency in his home district/state.
Making readers wonder, yet again, what it is exactly, that you are “independent,” of?
