Walker Urged Government Workers to Promote Him Online

"In the heat of the 2010 governor's race, Scott Walker urged both county employees and campaign aides to go to news websites and post comments promoting him and his record, newly unsealed documents show," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"It was just such anonymous posts by a county worker on campaign issues that prompted prosecutors to expand a secret 'John Doe' investigation -- launched to probe into missing money in a veterans fund -- to also examine whether taxpayer dollars were being used illegally to finance political operations."
