Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op reports:
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Tuesday afternoon’s recall target, goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage its midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin®, isn’t what he appears to be?
Self-banging Tea Party skank. Dedicated enemy of the working stiff. Assassin for the national big-business bully brigade. Point man for the cradle-to-grave poverty interests. A whopping butthole too, along with all that, but not the Jeezus-trembler he’d have us believe.
No, if true, Scott Walker isn’t the man of steadfast principles and moral steel he’s been imitating on the TV, before the voters, around the polling stations. He’s your extra sonuvabitch. A “You’re pregnant so what’s that got to do with me?” kind of guy.
Bernadette Gillick was a college freshman in 1988 when she first met Scott Walker. It was spring semester, and she had just transferred to Marquette University. She was assigned a room in O’Donnell Hall (then a women’s dormitory), which she shared with her new roommate, Ruth (not her real name). Ruth was dating Scott Walker, who was 20 at the time, and, according to Bernadette, Ruth was deeply in love with him.
Midway through that spring semester, Bernadette alleges, Ruth found out she was pregnant. She informed her boyfriend, Scott, and initially he was supportive. That support changed to callous indifference for his girlfriend’s predicament after Scott informed his parents of the pregnancy.
Bernadette reports that at this point Scott began denying that he was the father of the baby, and when Ruth said she was considering an abortion, he claimed he didn’t care, as he wasn’t the father anyway . .
“Walker has stated that he is ’100% pro-life’ and that he believes life should be protected from conception to natural death. He opposes abortion in all circumstances, including in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother. He supports abstinence-only sex education in the public schools, and opposes state supported clinical services that provide birth control and testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases to teens under the age of 18 without parental consent. He supports the right of pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for contraceptives on religious or moral grounds . . ”
“I supported her as he went from encouraging her to get an abortion, to telling me it was in my best interest to keep my mouth shut, to denying that he was the father and having his own mother call her and tell her to stop erroneously accusing her son of paternity,” Bernadette recounts.
It was a “horrible time” for her friend. “Imagine her being 18 years old and pregnant, walking around Marquette’s Jesuit Catholic campus with her boyfriend denying he was the father,” says Bernadette. . .
After consulting with her family, Ruth decided against an abortion. Bernadette was with Ruth in the hospital for the birth of her child later that year (and says Walker was not present), and later stood up as a bridesmaid in Ruth’s 1992 marriage to another man. She says Walker eventually had to concede that he was the father, after the birth and paternity test.
. . so if having a nasty turd for your governor makes Wisconsin any much better, vote for Scottie. If not, recall the bastard.
UPDATE: Latest says the whole story is wrong, that the father was another Scott Walker at Marquette. Well, if this is case, I sincerely apologize to the sonuvabitch. By the way, if having a nasty turd for your governor makes Wisconsin any much better, vote for Scottie. If not, recall the bastard.
UPDATE II: Okay, it wasn’t the other Scott Walker. So who was it? Gillick stands by her assertion:
According to Dr. Gillick’s attorney, Michael Fargione, who was present for an interview of Dr. Gillick conducted by Dave Umhoefer from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last week, he asked Dr. Gillick, “How do you know it was this Scott Walker?” She told him she had multiple conversations with him because her roommate was dating him. She exchanged words with him directly and in person after, as she alleges, he turned on her roommate once she notified him of her pregnancy and became unsupportive of her. “There is no mistake that it’s him,” she said.
So the only one denying it is the child’s mother. Who may have never told the child who her/his real father was, understandably. It’s currently the big story in politics, and the Governor remains stone silent, two days before the recall. Hmm. Tick-tock tick-tock . .
