Democrats Go Over the Top With Last-Minute Walker Smear
Power Line ^ | 6/3/12 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 06/03/2012 1:02:58 PM PDT by Ron C.

Unbelievable. The Democrats are looking down the barrel of a humiliating defeat in Wisconsin’s recall election on Tuesday, so today they played their last card: they started a rumor that Scott Walker fathered an illegitimate child 24 years ago. The “scoop” comes from something called the Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op. The “Co-op” attributes the story to a woman named Bernadette Gillick, who teaches physical therapy at the University of Minnesota. Ms. Gillick claims to have known Walker’s girlfriend when they were students at Marquette. The “Co-op” says it has “not been able to independently verify Bernadette’s account.” No surprise there.

Same thing Barbara Boxer did in 1992, alleged at the last minute that her opponent frequented Hollywood strip clubs.

In case this hasn’t been posted, I found this earlier.

The domain name ‘recallscottwalker’ was registered on November 2, 2010.

Walker started January 2011. http://is.gd/R48gcX

...but Democrat likely voters have swung UP in favor of Walker by 20 points. He’s a new lefty hero. Now, if we learn his putative girlfriend actually aborted the baby, he may win all of the lefty vote.

For what it’s worth, Walker is back up to 96% on Intrade as of 15:15 CDT.

My prediction:

If Romney wins, it will be by a landslide.

If Obama wins, it will be by a mudslide.

Is anybody surprised at this move. Remember, Herman Cain got taken out by the mere ALLEGATION that he had helped out someone who came to him with a hard-luck story, and it spun totally out of control.

When all else fails, try to pin a sexual misconduct story on the Republican officeholder. After all, it is the serious nature of the charge, not the factual content of the allegation, that is the important thing.

Of course, if similar charges are brought against a Democrat who is trying to defend his elective position, the charges are only a resume enhancement. Even John Edwards does not seem to be all that tarnished by his recent confrontation with the law.

Late Saturday night, a left-wing anti-Walker website reported an unconfirmed, second-hand rumor that Gov. Walker fathered a “love child” 24 years ago.

I have it on good authority that the friend of an uncle of a professor of a college where my aunt's child went heard it on the radio that the mother of a man who read it on the internet heard that some guy was talking about, on the subway, that he heard his barber met a prostitute who saw a police report about a poster about this girl who saw on TV that three guys in a bar were talking about a politician who mentioned in a press conference that he heard his father had mentioned that he saw read some magazine that said that Kevin Bacon had overheard from a news anchor that four girls in an elementary school mentioned that their parents had heard on their CB radio that a truckrt had saw some guy who said that he had a friend who knew a roomate of his who had a girlfriend that overheard at a Phish concert that Scott Walker was gay.

PASS IT ON!

Was that Bruce Herschensohn? He was a good candidate but he DID have some porn titles rented and he did go to a strip club, if I recall correctly.

Not that that was any reason to vote against him, it wasn’t...but there was smoke behind the fire, as there was in Ryan’s disgusting marriage behaviors that cost him the vote against Dear Leader.

The moral of the story is, either don’t do those things that can be exposed, or admit them and move on, ‘cause the DemnRats will always find ways to expose that stuff.

I was in a museum in Tucson this past winter. A woman in front of us got into some sort of snit with her husband (they were both of the aging hippy variety) and screeched at him then stomped out. He proceeded to look at the exhibit and left when we did. In the parking lot, the woman was sitting in their car, with a Wisconsin plate and several “Recall Walker”,”Walker hates Education” - type stickers on it. She was still fuming. If she’s any indication of the people trying to recall Walker, I’ll bet every normal person in Wisconsin can’t wait to vote to keep him.

“Go over to Jim Hoft’s Gateway Pundit. He has the story.”

And check out Michelle Malkin’s new site Twitchy.com it’s got some tweets from that Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Daniel Bice (I think that’s his correct name/spelling). It pretty much removes all doubt that there is any “there” here.

Although I won’t be surprised if this story grows little legs, enough to toddle for the next few days.

Hopefully any downside will be off-set by motivation for our side in this fight.

I went to Marquette and knew Scott Walker well during my time there in the 80s. We were in student govt together. I knew who he dated as well. This is a total crock.

If you want a reply that you posted to be deleted, go back to the reply and click "report abuse" Tell the problem and ask that it be removed. The moderator may or may not comply but it least you'll get his/her attention.

No sympathy. If the Walker campaign didn’t keep a well-planned “Tom Barrett collects kiddie porn and fondles little boys” rumor up their sleeve just for such an occasion as this, then that’s their problem. To beat the scumbag Democrats you have to be fully prepared to dive to the bottom of the sewer and fight them where they live. If you are not prepared to do that then you deserve to lose.

Thanks I also thought about the "Report Abuse", but I didn't think it's that big of a deal. So I just thought that if on the off chance, it was being monitored, it might get done, but if not, no big deal.

I also tried typing "Sidebar Moderator" (for my post #19) in the "TO" field multiple times, but it wouldn't work. Of course it does now. Hmm, age or Yuengling lager, which to blame THAT on. haha
