Scott Walker's Run For Governor Guiding County Exec Behavior

The Milwaukee County Board is wresting administrative and fiscal powers from Executive Scott Walker because Walker is using those powers to burnish his candidacy.

So while Walker is tooling around the Midwest on a motorcycle purportedly telling strangers to come visit Milwaukee, the Board is trimming his ability to change fees and making it harder to furlough employees.

Labor is Walker's foil, but since his failed effort with dubious deficit projections to justify major furloughs, look for Walker to spin, flip-flop and pose his way through the rest of the pre-2010 local budget period, above all, to appear to a right wing GOP base as worthy of serving as Governor.
