Memo To The Media: Maybe This Is Why Walker Needed Extra Security

  • Print

Posted at Right Wisconsin

The mainstream media thinks they have a juicy story about the increase in security costs for both Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch over the last few years. And Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate jumped all over it demanding that Walker reimburse the state for the added security costs.

Could there possibly be a reason that the security detail was boosted for Walker and Kleefisch? Oh right, all of the threats against Walker's life.
The 2011 labor protests in Madison featured signs like these:
And comparisons to one of history's greatest monsters.
Recall, when live rounds of ammunition were found outside the capitol?
Notes like this to the First Lady:
Has Wisconsin ever had a governor assassinated? Scotts heading that way. Or maybe one of your sons getting killed would hurt him more. I want him to feel the pain. I already follow them when they went to school in Wauwatosa, so it won’t be too hard to find them in Mad. Town. Big change from that house by [BLANK] Ave. to what you got now. Just let him know that it’s not right to [EXPLETIVE] over all those people. Or maybe I could find one of the Tarantinos [Tonette’s parents] back here.
Lots of choices for me.
And how the threats continued even when Walker won his recall election in 2012? Below are just a few from the website Twitchy.
