Discard, Delete, Deny - - Walker Has Practiced The Politics Of Deletion Since MU, 1988

That's when his run for student body president was derailed because his supporters threw away copies of the Marquette Tribune over an endorsement that didn't go his way.

Fast-forward to deletions from his gubernatorial campaign website - - examples of now-dead links to his campaign website postings about his business growth plans keyed to a promise of 250,000 new jobs are listed here and here.

But resurrected here.

Little wonder that he would try and trick us into thinking he'd not made the promise.

Or have PR staff in the Governor's office that tries to get a media outlet to delete an embarrassing story:

Bad enough that Scott Walker tried to slip away from his 250,000 new jobs promise, but how aboutthis effort by his news secretary to get a TV station to delete the story from its news feed?
Walker's press secretary, Tom Evenson, called Newswatch 12 on Tuesday, and asked if we could be persuaded to take Monday's story off our website.
Still defaulting to cover-up mode after 25 years.
