With Isikoff Yahoo piece in mind, re-read Walker's Ethics Plan

Yahoo's chief investigative reporter Michael Isikoff unearthed new secret donations routed from big-monied interests to benefit Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign, and reprised the secret $700,000 sent the same way for the same reasons from a mining company which wrote a bill for its own benefit which Walker boosted and signed into law.

We here in Wisconsin have been saying for some time that Walker's been running am ethics-free scam on the voters which, for the most part, has gone unnoticed elsewhere, but who remembers that ethics reform and better government were central to Walker's brief run for Governor in 2005, or so he claimed.

I've posted it before and here it is again, for your lamentation, or delight.

My personal favorite, given what we know now about dark money, donor legislating and their big wins from state financing coffers?
Scott Walker will push legislation that prohibits contributions to his campaign from firms that are seeking to do business with the state while the contracts are being bid and awarded.

Oh, but he said contributions to his CAMPAIGN, don'tcha know. Gogebic & Menards, those are contributions to CLUB FOR GROWTH. Toooootally different.

Yep, completely independent expenditures, with no contact or influence gained from the donation. None whatsoever, right SCOTUS?
