Walker's Spewage Dump Causes Back Up

People are quickly catching on that Scott Walker's attempt to take the attention off of his own shortcomings by trying to make a big deal of the problems at MMSD is causing a back up of raw spewage in his own campaign office.

The normally Walker-friendly local paper isn't buying into his crap on MMSD:
Walker has suggested separating sewers in the combined sewer area in Milwaukee and Shorewood piecemeal; the work would be done when the municipalities do the routine street maintenance. It’s an idea worthy of discussion, but it should be remembered that separating the sewers in this way would be costly and slow.

Remember: Overflows also happened in areas with separated sewers. Separating the sewers may have mitigated what happened in July but could not have prevented a serious overflow or some backed-up basements in older neighborhoods. To get a handle on that issue, homeowners and municipalities need to address the miles of possibly leaky local sewer lines and laterals.


Calling Lake Michigan Tom Barrett’s toilet — as the Walker campaign did in a recent news release — is a particularly odious charge. Coupled with the “Soul Train Line” tweet the other day from the Walker campaign, which was at the least stupid and insensitive, helps sets the tone for a nasty fall campaign if Walker and Barrett win their September primaries.

Wisconsin voters deserve better.
The Dems are taking full advantage of Walker's spewage problem with this video, once again showing that Walker turned his back on his constituents when they needed him the most:

Walker's failure to lead is becoming as clear in his campaign as it is has his pretending to be the county executive.

ADDENDUM: James Rowen also reminds us that Walker was polluting Bradford Beach and it was the same MMSD that he now maligns that pulled his butt out of that particular sling.
