Scott Walker, Conservative, Causes Excessive Spending…

CBS reports “To understand just how large this battle has become, consider this: According to the Center for Public Integrity, candidates and outside groups have spent $63.5 million on the recall election – an enormous figure that easily breaks the previous record of $37.4 million (set in the 2010 gubernatorial contest) for spending in a Wisconsin election.”

Wisconsinites might vote Walker in or out, but either way, $63.5 million spent on the recall election of a man fanned by some and despised by many, is just a whole lot of money spent that never would have been spent had Walker negotiated ongoing instead deciding so much by fiat.
