Madison, WI - On Monday, John Hawkins, a Right Wing News blogger was forced to recant a quote from Republican Governor Scott Walker, which was allegedly said in a January 17 article, that he voted for Ronald Reagan to become President. Actually, Walker was born in 1967 and according to Hawkins, Walker was 13-years-old when he allegedly voted.
Hawkins major mistake that took 25 days to recant almost cost Governor Walker the Republican nomination for President. Walker hasn't officially announced that he was throwing his hat for the presidential bid, but he was obviously made to look like he lied or was confessing to committing voter fraud. Lmfao
Why did it take 25 days for Hawkins to recant his article and for Walker to pressure Hawkins to fix the alleged misquote? Now, speculation is brewing that the GOP or the Walker unofficial campaign might have made some political promises to Hawkins. Who knows?
But, the audio posted of the recorded Walker's interview could have been re-recorded and edited to make it appear that it was the actual recording, some conspiracy believers might allege.
People can be judge or figure out what actually just happened between Hawkins and the Wisconsin GOP governor's circle.
