Walker Under Scrutiny

The New York Times notes that with the prospect of higher office on the horizon, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) "finds his earlier track record under increasing scrutiny, not only for how closely it hews to conservative principles but also for the criminal convictions of some staff members and the release of staff emails that included racial and ethnic slurs."

"These date to his time as Milwaukee County executive, a post he held from 2002 to 2010, and raise questions about the people he chose as confidants, the same sorts of questions that have caused more acute troubles for Mr. Christie in the scandal surrounding lane closings at the George Washington Bridge. Three of Mr. Walker's former aides and several other associates have been convicted of crimes in an investigation into whether campaign work was being done on county time."
