As readers will be aware by now, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) has found himself enmeshed in his own “gate”, this time a scandal about, among many other things, the use of secret wireless routers to send campaign related emails while using public resources, a big no-no.
Over the weekend at the annual National Governor’s Association meeting, Walker continued to try to change the subject, but added a new layer, deflecting attention towards fellow embattled Governor and 2016 Republican Presidential contender Chris Christie (R), telling reporters that the New Jersey Governor’s troubles were, “just beginning.” Christie “addressed it early on, but obviously he’s not out of the woods yet”.
Walker’s comments about Christie are obviously seeking to deflect attention from himself towards a potential rival. What I found more interesting, though, was Walker taking friendly fire from Chris Wallace of Fox News in an interview aired yesterday:
WALLACE: Did you know there was a private email account?WALKER: No, again, it’s one of those right point out – the district attorney has reviewed every single one of these issues.WALLACE: You’re not answering my question.WALKER: No, because I’m not going to get into 27,000 different pieces of information.
