Walker’s office knew jobs figures were ‘suspect,’ report shows

Announcing the best job numbers of his tenure with a splash last summer, Gov. Scott Walker left out the fact that his office had been told in an internal report that the monthly numbers were “very questionable” and “suspect”….

But three days before the announcement, Walker’s office received a report from the state labor department that raised serious concerns about the numbers. The PowerPoint presentation was released to the Journal Sentinel under the state’s open records law.

“Results, while (federal Bureau of Labor Statistics) approved, are very questionable,” reads the first line of the report.
