Hard to believe Walker didn't know

However, Gov. Scott Walker has managed to tip toe around the scandals and claim ignorance to the activities that took place just down the hall from his office door. The accusations of illegal activities performed by Walker’s associates range from embezzlement to child enticement.

Tim Russell, Walker’s former deputy chief of staff, has been charged with several felonies relating to campaign and charity embezzlement. Another associate of the governor, Bill Gardner, has been convicted of two felonies for unlawful campaign contributions and was fined for a campaign finance violation.

The media has not done an adequate job of covering this issue and digging into what is turning out to be a huge scandal and lack of transparency by the Walker administration.
