Walker turns empty vessel tour to hard, far right fringe

Let's be clear about Scott Walker's 'job announcement' - - organizing key states to initiate a 50-state constitutional convention to take the country back to 1950. Or 1850: 

Walker's 'work' the group has nothing to do with the Constitution. 

Here's an expanded lens through which to view Walker's move:
So mostly for my media and activist friends beyond Wisconsin here's a rough, incomplete and to-be-updated first cut at a list of items, resources and authors whose work will delve deeper into what Walker actually "worked on as governor."
I doubt he's even read it. If he had, he wouldn't have spent eight years promoting restrictions to voting rights that people died to attain.

Or have sworn an oath of office to uphold the state constitution, too, while systematically undermining its 9th article that guarantees people the right to clean, accessible water.

Or have, more recently, worked in secret to move traditional duties of the governor and attorney general through power-grabbing lame-duck, post-defeat bills to a legislative committee dominated by GOP legislators through toxically-gerrymandering which mocks and negates 'one-person-one-vote' due process and equal protection rights.

Walker has thrown in with the loopiest of right-wing donors and their minorities-dismissing-public-sector-killing corporate-enshrining agendas just to keep his name and face and travel schedules in the news and before post-Tea Party rightest constituencies for another doomed run at the Presidency.

He's addicted to the game.

Once an empty vessel, always an empty vessel.

I did not see his name listed as a CPAC speaker. That certainly is a dis.
