Governor Scott Walker is not permitting the Leftist media to lie to the public.
In the face of clear prosecutorial abuse against conservatives, Gov. Walker is putting out the truth, fighting back against the distortions of the Leftist media.
The Leftists in the media are behaving like buffoons, foaming at the mouth, presenting the rejected arguments of Democrat John Chisholm and his partisan prosecutors as if they're new revelations of reality.
The disgraceful, partisan rag, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, has published a statement on the matter from Scott Walker. That hardly constitutes balance and integrity on the part of the Journal Sentinel, but here is Walker's statement:
Abraham Lincoln once said, "Truth is generally the best vindication against slander."I'm not backing down.
The truth on the widely covered "John Doe" is that two judges, one state and one federal, reviewed the accusations of partisans within a Democrat district attorney's office and determined their theories have no merit or basis in law.
Each of these judges explicitly issued judicial orders that these partisan prosecutors must end their investigation immediately.
These are the truths that need to be stated over and over again to fight the slander directed at me and our campaign by my political opponents.
Still, many in the media proceed as though the opinion of the partisan prosecutors is new information and ignore the truths I have stated above. It is not. It is old news that has already been discounted by two judges. No charges. No case.
In reaction to the information that was released to the public and seized on by the media, the federal judge just this week sharply criticized the prosecutors. He said that they are now seeking "refuge in the Court of Public Opinion, having lost in this Court on the law."
Watching the media frenzy, it is clear that this is what happens when someone takes on the big government special interests. They push back. No wonder so many politicians are afraid to make tough decisions.
I will not back down. We will continue to fight using the truth to keep the hard-working taxpayers of Wisconsin in charge of their state and local governments. We will continue to fight to make life better for the good people of Wisconsin.
Scott Walker is the governor of Wisconsin.
I doubt other supporters of Scott Walker will back down.
This recent smear attempt only serves to energize me.
I'll do all I can to prevent the Leftists from destroying all the progress we've made in Wisconsin.
The media Leftists have no shame.
They failed to prevent Walker from being elected governor in 2010. They failed again in the recall election in 2012. They're obviously desperate to bring him down in the 2014 election.
Are we going to let them succeed?
