Regent Nomination Spiked After RightWisconsin Exposes His Recaller Past
Once again, our investment in resources necessary to bring you news and analysis you deserve pays off.
Brian Fraley reports this breaking news from Madison:
On Monday, Walker appointed UW-Platteville student Joshua Inglett as a student representative to the board. On Wednesday, we reported that a "Josh Inglett" of Portage had signed a Walker recall petition on December 26, 2011.
Administration officials confirmed that it was indeed Inglett’s signature on the recall petition.
Administration aides say they did interview and vet Inglett, who they say expressed support for Walker and his agenda. He did not volunteer the fact that he had signed the petition to recall the governor.
Inglett was one of three appointees to the Board of Regents announced on Monday, June 10. The appointment was on the fast track for approval--a public hearing before the Senate Committee on Universities and Technical Colleges was held on Wednesday. RightWisconsin reported on Inglett's signature after the conclusion of the hearing. A Committee vote on Inglett's nomination was expected today. That vote will likely be postponed at the request of the Walker Administration.
