As Doe Ad Scandal Unfolds, Walker Defaults…To Ad Buy$

The Governor can't remember anything about his leadership and emails about what prosecutors are calling a "criminal [fund-raising/ad coordination] scheme," but he remembers how to muddy the waters:

Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker reserved $250,000 worth of TV air time on Thursday, as court documents were made public showing prosecutors claimed he was in the middle of a “criminal scheme” to coordinate fundraising by outside groups during recall elections in 2011 and 2012, two media-buying sources told POLITICO. 
The sources said the ad flight will last 12 days. The air time was booked as the documents were made public, prompting widespread speculation about what it could mean for the reelection effort this year of a politician widely seen as a 2016 presidential hopeful.

Since you enjoy mocking those that tell the truth about the journal communications propaganda network (which includes milwaukee journal sentinel), how much money do you think they are going to pocket from this.

They (mjs) have 2 pro-walker pieces online now defending walker (christian blahblahblah and Bruce Vielmetti) so we know the state's biggest walker-backer (endorsed twice despite the mess he left in milwaukee county) is already salivating at all of the cash that is going to flow into journal communication's coffers.

Mark my words -- you will see more disinformation in milwaukee journal sentinel over the next few weeks than real reporting.
