Scott Walker hasn’t seen a good headline in a loooong time. Last week was no exception.
Walker has been getting hammered by the media after a WKOW investigation revealed that Walker’s economic development agency, WEDC, has given tax credits to companies that ship jobs overseas. Moreover, the companies at the heart of the controversy, and their board members, have donated significant money to the Walker campaign.
The outsourcing debacle has been covered by ABC, NBC and CBS affiliates across Wisconsin, from Madison and Green Bay to LaCrosse and Wausau, and an AP story has been picked up across the country.
Scott Walker is having all sorts of trouble bringing new jobs to Wisconsin. But he’s pretty good at shipping them away.
