Scott Walker breaks law 1,100 times; Glenn Grothman's solution: Change the law

Scott Walker has broken state campaign finance law more than 1,000 times, according to

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker has violated the state of Wisconsin's campaign finance laws 1,115 times since 2009 by failing to disclose information about contributors who donated more than $100. Walker's serial offenses include 456 contributions filed in the last 72 hours totaling nearly $284,000.

The total contributions in violation of Wisconsin statute 11.60(1) total $518,096. One Wisconsin Now previously filed a complaint with the Government Accountability Board in September when Walker's improperly-reported contribution tally was $235,000 half of what it has risen to in the last several days.

State Sen. Glenn Grothman has a solution: Change the law.

 Grothman and eight Assembly Republicans are co-sponsors of

This bill deletes the requirement to report the name and address of the principal place of employment, if any, of these contributors.

Just call Grothman Mr. Fixit.

There's a public hearing of the Senate Transportation and Elections Committee at 10 am Thursday, Jan. 12, in Room 201-SE of the State Capitol.
