WTDY Report—State Documents Show Scott Walker Lied on Anti-Worker Law

Scott Walker testifies before
U.S. House Oversight Committee in April 2011
WTDY's reporter, Dylan Brogan, breaks a major story, obtaining state documents revealing Scott Walker began drafting the anti-workers' bill, Act 10, in November 2010, contradicting his April 2011 testimony before the U.S. Congress and assurances made to the Wisconsin people.

[D]rafting documents obtained by WTDY News from the non-partisan Legislative Reference Bureau reveal that Act 10 was actually being drafted in November, just weeks after Walker was elected governor.
The documents call into question Walker's stated policy rationales on the controversial legislation.

Indeed, as Uppity Wisconsin notes, "This directly contradicts sworn testimony Walker gave to the U.S. House Oversight Committee, where he said that labor unions trying to have their contract approved in a lame-duck December session was the motivation and starting point for the creation of Act 10."
