Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker co-wrote a book with Marc Thiessen, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush. He got paid to do that, but he won't reveal how much. Walker is prone to secrecy. And I am prone to stating the obvious.

But back to Walker's secrecy issues. He refuses to tell anyone who donated to his legal defense fund. He needed the money from his anonymous donors to cover the costs of the "John Doe" campaign finance violations probe into his former aides and associates.

And now Walker is hiding something else, via TwinCities.com:

Gov. Scott Walker did not disclose Wednesday how much he was paid to write a book he released last fall, providing only the bare minimum required on a statement of economic interest form he filed with state regulators.

18,000 copies were sold over a six month period.

"This report shows Gov. Walker continues to keep secret from the people of Wisconsin both the details of how much he personally enriched himself for his lucrative pre-presidential campaign book deal, as well as who financed his criminal defense fund," said Scot Ross, director of the liberal advocacy group One Wisconsin Now. "Given the corruption, cronyism and incompetence surrounding his administration, the people deserve much more information than what Gov. Walker has shielded from public scrutiny."

One thing is no secret-- Walker continues to be a scheming, hypocritical phony who should have been recalled from office.

    Yep, that's my college drop out governor. Let's hope we can send him packing after this year. Oh course, Democrats have to show up and actually vote this time and there will be no excuse about voter ID to use.
