Scott Walker Should Make Public Call for Aides to Tell the Truth
Scott Walker's appointees and subordinates accused of everything from child enticement to embezzling from veterans to corrupt use of public office should receive this public statement from Walker:
Tell the full truth to John Doe criminal investigators. The Wisconsin people deserve the truth.
- Scott Walker
Tim Russell, Kelly Rindfleisch, Brian Pierick, Darlene Wink, Kevin Kavanaugh, and Bill Gardner, this means you.
If Scott Walker refuses to issue this simple, decent statement demanding the truth, Tom Barrett should call for a public statement from Walker demanding these people tell the truth.
And we as citizens should ask why Walker would not make such a call for the truth.
Furthermore, Barrett should vow that anyone serving in his administration is under standing orders to fully cooperate with criminal investigators at all times, and anything less than the full truth is unacceptable.
President George W. Bush in 2005 said, "I have instructed every member of my staff to fully cooperate in this investigation" of the leak of the name of a CIA non-official cover (or NOC) agent.
