Congratulations to Scott Walker for being awarded the first “full green Truth-O-Meter” by PolitiFact Wisconsin.“For years, folks in southeastern Wisconsin have heard about Scott Walker, the Milwaukee County executive, giving up thousands upon thousands of dollars of his salary.
Elsewhere, the claim may be more of a jaw-dropper.
So now the $370,000 question: Has Walker really given back that much back?
Walker has foregone $375,070 in salary since being elected county executive in 2002 — $5,070 more than what he has claimed during the gubernatorial campaign.”Show us another politician, anywhere, that has put that much personal compensation back in the hands of the taxpayers who employ them.
Clearly, you can see why the public employees unions vilify him. Walker is a man of character and integrity, who keeps his word.
