Then, Now

Scot Ross, head of the liberal group One Wisconsin Now, said it is worth asking whether Walker’s support for the proposed iron ore mine in Ashland and Iron counties was linked to the $700,000 that Gogebic Taconite LLC gave to Wisconsin Club for Growth during the 2011 and 2012 recall elections.

“The record is clear: Scott Walker the legislator was for tougher environmental laws on mining before Scott Walker the governor was against them,” said Ross, who gave $250 to Walker’s opponent, Democrat Mary Burke. “The ‘$700,000 Question’ remains — what changed Governor Walker’s mind?”
