Wisconsin Dem Political Stunt: Seek Probe Of Walker With Koch Connection

Translating Democrat waterboy, Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, the Wisconsin Democrats are flailing. Now, desperate to try and help their image and too afraid of the union bosses to go back to work, they’ve devised a strategy to try and turn the tables on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Governor Scott Walker’s conduct on the prank call with the David Koch imposter has largely receded from the national media spotlight, but if Wisconsin Democrats have their way, it will be the subject of an investigation by Wisconsin’s enforcer of campaign finance laws.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party is set to file a complaint today to the state Government Accountability Board that alleges Walker repeatedly violated Wisconsin statutes by appearing to request support from Koch in shoring up vulnerable Republicans and by indicating that he would use the threat of layoffs as a political tool.

Sargent posts a copy of their complaint. This is all they’ve got, after 3 weeks camped out in out-of-state hotels? They must be dumber than I thought. Based on his tone, they didn’t even impress Greg Sargent very much. That, or his editor at WaPo only lets him carry the water so far. Even his Dem-friendly summary is enough to conclude there’s no there there. Hint: Democrats are desperate for some good PR, so they decided to give a bogus Koch-related complaint stunt a shot. Hopefully now they will find a way to get back to work. The cowardly Wisconsin Democrats have been AWOL for three weeks in what amounts to an assault on the democratic process.

I’ve got a copy of the complaint, to be released later today, and it’s worth a read, not necessarily because of the impact it may or may not have, but because it’s a reminder of how egregous Walker’s conduct on the call really was.

The complaint also alleges that it was improper for Walker to suggest to Koch that Republicans in swing areas might need shoring up, since this smacks of illegal coordiation, though to my mind it isn’t clear what he was asking for. It also says that Walker’s claim that he “thought about” planting troublemakers in the crowd “constitutes a conspiracy to recklessly endanger public safety,” though here too it’s not quite clear what Walker really considered doing.
