Quotation for Today: A Secret System a la Nixon's White House Tapes

The quotation for today, as the post's sub-title teases the reader, introduces a story about alleged illegal activity by government workers. The alleged illegal activity involves government workers performing partisan political work while on the public payroll.  Apparently, the government workers, while performing their partisan political work, were utilizing electricity bought and paid for by taxpayers.

"I have every confidence that when this is completed, people will see that our integrity remains intact."
Scott Walker

Scott Walker is the current governor of the State of Wisconsin.  Governor Walker's comment is about the investigation of possible political activities illegally conducted by state government workers.

The alleged illegal activity took place at the county level when Governor Walker was Milwaukee County Executive and was running for governor.

The AlterNet article cited below provides additional details on this investigation.
