Capitol Chaos: Walker Responds to Prank
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he won't be distracted by a prank phone call made by a blogger posing as one of his campaign donors, and he'll push forward with a bill to limit the power of public employee unions.
Walker stood by his comments on the call, saying they were no different than what he has said publicly.
A website called the Buffalo Beast posted audio of Tuesday's call in which its editor pretended to be conservative billionaire David Koch, who had supported Walker's campaign. On the call, Walker talked about his strategy to pressure Senate Democrats who fled to Illinois to return to Wisconsin to vote on the bill.
Walker revealed his supporters considered bringing in outside agitators to stir up trouble with protesters, but he dismissed that idea.
