Scott Walker Is A Crook, Just Like You Always Thought

In news that should be more shocking than it is, Wisconsin prosecutors say Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of a wide-ranging "criminal scheme" to coordinate fundraising between his campaign and conservative groups in order to fend off his richly-deserved recall in 2012. In newly unsealed documents, prosecutors say Walker and his GOP cronies were guilty of "criminal violations of multiple elections laws." So much for Walker's gloating claim after his always-questionable victory that "voters really do want leaders who stand up and make the tough decisions." With prosecutors reportedly likewise closing in on Chris Christie, it could be tough for the GOP to find any unindicted presidential candidates.
