    I can see CONs scrambling to find an equiv. The need is a tad desperate as the claiming it asked supporters to forgo gifts, when in reality it asks for PART of the money to be sent to the election fund. Also this wasn't a directed Email like in the Walker case, but rather a blog post. the part of your spending to be directed to something other than gifts is used in many marketing groups. A direct Email attacking your gift selections and asking you to instead of providing ANY gifts to your children you should send the money to a politician, not just part, is a tad different.

    But let's focus- one is a broad based appeal for SOME of the disposable income, one a highly targeted one for ALL the gift money with a bonus insult of bad mouthing the gifts you would buy.

    Anywho, the part I found interesting is the aide,(real hottie for sure)- guess Walker saw her credentials right off the bat- who ran the 'Friends of Scott Walker' campaign had a rather nasty opinion of Mexicans and was quite happy to share (complete with F bombs- maybe Walker likes 'em to talk dirty) via Tweetin' in 2011. But even more interesting is a very close member of the Walker team, the asst dept of DOT (a Walker political appointee) Steve Kriesser was fired a few weeks ago for an offensive and repugnant facebook defense of a hunting season on illegal immigrants bumper sticker. He claimed to see Satan in the illegal immigrants.

    So it seems Walker has hired a few bigots to help him govern, and maintain his spot at the public trough.

    That's right folks! Gov. Walker (Rep) of Wisconsin wants you to send that money you planned to spend for toys, to his political campaign.
    This is what the campaign email said:



    Just... wow.



    I would love to hear what some of the kids who would be stiffed on Christmas in order to fill Governor Walker's pockets think about this idea.

    I totally agree. Just when you think that you've heard it all, something like this comes along.

    Oh my goodness, someone actually HAS tried to differentiate the two...

    Daniel Bice - Scott Walker campaign aide fired after tweets demeaning Hispanics

    How did that 2012 election turn out? (With or without help from this malarkey?)

    Does anyone have any data on that?

    That's right folks! Gov. Walker (Rep) of Wisconsin wants you to send that money you planned to spend for toys, to his political campaign. This is what the campaign email said:

    I took a few minutes and did a Google search of: "Scott Walker's campaign asks supporters to skip toys for kids and send money to him instead."


    I found this: http://news.yahoo.com/gov-walker-urg...-politics.html

    Generally I have little use for Yahoo news, but I liked this article.

    I guess on the plus side if you send the money to Walker instead of going to the mall you don't have to fight your way through the sometimes-violent crowds there.

    I found it interesting that the article ended with the statement that the Walker campaign had not responded to an ABC News request for comment on the fund-raising email.

    If you have any reliable proof that it's a lie, let's see it.
