Keeping Scott Walker on his heels

Gov. Walker defends website touting recordJSOnline

I don't believe the WisDems' complaint has merit (the website is not "electioneering"), but generating headlines like that is a win in itself.

When the governor is forced to defend himself simply for publicizing his alleged accomplishments, that's a good thing for Walker opponents.

It's also a massive failure for Scott Walker's PR department.

How much has it cost to get the site up and keep it running? That would be interesting to find out.

Do you have you [sic] own story to share about how the Governor's reforms are getting results?

Share them with us by emailing julie.lund@wisconsin.gov


Maybe they take questions too.

Inasmuch as only positive feedback is solicited, the "electioneering" charge gains some traction.

Fair point.

Well, It is a given that what accomplishments Walker has listed (true, embellished or false)--they will be forever repeated by astro-turfing on comment sections throughout WI.

UGA UGA!!

It's also a readymade project for PolitiFact.

Politifact? Yup, they'll get their best reporter on it right away.

Fact checking the "according to media reports" might be fun. If there were only citations...
