That Awkward Moment When Walker Put Sex Offenders on the Same Footing as Same Sex Couples

Everyone is aglow with the idea that Governor Scott Walker is changing his tune on same sex marriage-- or at least willing to look the other way-- because 100% of his attention is on jobs.  (Luckily gay people don't work or employ people.)

Child, please.

This is the same Scott Walker that promised to maintain state aide to public schools and negotiate with public sector unions and then made the biggest cut to education and killed public sector unions after he got elected.  

This is also the same Scott Walker that has been one of the most virulently anti-gay politicians in the country.  He's compared gay marriage to pedophilia and incest.  And in 2009, in a criticism of then-Governor Jim Doyle, he put those seeking to see their loved one in the hospital on the same footing as those on the state's sexual offender registry.  (See below.)

I genuinely hope Walker changes his view and joins a majority of Wisconsinites in support of gay marriage, but until he actually does or says something of substance, he doesn't deserve any credit for changing his bigoted views.
