Walker + Numbers = Falsehoods

Scott Walker

Wrong-Way Walker hasn't met a statistic he can't twist into a fib.

Take a look at all of PolitiFact's Walker findings and note how many involve numbers he gets wrong or uses inaccurately.

A flub here or there, OK.

But this is a pattern. Statistical incompetence, ignorance, or voter manipulation?

We ask these questions because, well, there goes again:

PolitiFact on Wednesday did a superb job explaining Walker's false use of data in the last debate with challenger Mary Burke: 
SCOTT WALKER "The next state budget will begin with a surplus of over half a billion dollars -- $535 million to be exact." As of now, a "structural deficit" is projected.
