Walker trying to hide away from public in remaining days before June 5 Recall election. Final push is on.

Apparently when Scott Walker is actually in Wisconsin and not at Koch Brothers fundraisers, he usually makes himself pretty inaccessible to the people of Wisconsin. Now, with the remaining days before the Recall election closing in, Walker is now hiding from the people of Wisconsin. Perhaps this is a coward’s way to run out the clock and not answer questions about his scandals or failed policies. Perhaps he is being coached by outside-Wisconsin Republican backstage operators to make himself “rare” and only go to carefully crafted and staged events with no scrutiny. Perhaps Walker is now scared of internal poll numbers that show him below 50% and falling.

Politico reports:

His engagements in public venues have tailed off. Retail events have given way to rallies with supporters at campaign offices. Walker’s passive debate performance Friday, where he seemed more comfortable withstanding rhetorical blows from Democrat Tom Barrett than landing many of his own, offered more signs of his play-it-safe homestretch approach. The governor even passed on asking Barrett a direct question — usually a ripe opportunity to place an opponent on defense for a perceived weakness.

While his communications director told POLITICO he had no scheduled campaign events during the holiday weekend, the governor ended up popping up at several rallies with supporters. Walker spokeswoman Ciara Matthews described as many as seven different weekend stops as impromptu additions to the calendar.

In a phone interview with POLITICO on Monday, Walker pushed back on the implication he was playing it safe by sticking to carefully managed events among allies.


Maybe Walker spokeswoman Ciara Matthews is known by Walker staff for her pie, perhaps that’s why she she can’t keep up with the schedule. When she worked at Hooters, it seemed a lot more organized. There is a debate on Thursday, so Walker will have to come out of hiding for that event.

What’s very funny is how the Koch Brothers have been sending out their errand boys and halfwit brigade via their “Americans For Prosperity” Bus Tour. This astroturf movement will be invading Wisconsin in the last week before Walker’s Recall election. We need to show them what Wisconsin democracy looks like. They are getting free food from the Koch Brothers as well as other perks.
