    Probe surrounding Wis. governor apparently growing

    Wednesday's raid is the latest carried out by federal authorities on several of Governor Scott Walker's top staffers, all state employees who recently resigned.

    Even though the search warrant was executed on a home in the state capital of Madison, they were Milwaukee FBI agents. It appears that the federal investigation concerns Governor Walker's time as Milwaukee county executive.
    Ahh, yes, Walker was going to bring honesty back to Wisconsin politics. You know, I knew something like this might happen. Why? Because Walker is just another politician, and Republican or Democrat, they are ALL scum bags. When are Republicans and Democrats going to wake up and realize that they've been had?

    I don't hold much hope for that in the short term. I think people have gotten too caught up in the partisan polarization to take honest stock of the current position of government and the main parties. We don't pay enough attention to the system and instead go off of sound bites, preconceived notions, and finger pointing. Duped by designing men, just as Webster said.

    some of us are well aware of politician's failings. some pols are just much worse than others, i think. it's sad that today the peeple we elect to represent us are more interested in the power and money politics can bring them.

    I want you to know that not all politicians are not scumbags. There are some of us who served the public with our

    integrity tact.

    It is easy to paint all politicians with the same broad brush, however there are some who take the position reluctantly but for the right reasons.

    A few of us are able to ignore the shame that some bring upon themselves when they have lost their way.

    I know a few politicians who have lived up to their "Oath of Office," I count myself among them.

    This is shaping up as a very major news story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention Dan.

    From what I hear, it's just an investigation into some employees of Walkers that alledgedly used work computers to blog or send emails in support of Walker.

    Yeah.. I'm sure that just makes Walker, who may or may not have even known, pure scum.

    This is pure Allinsky. It should be dismissed with an apology instead angry libs will go after, and try and destroy anyone that bucks their ideology.
