Walker is returning Wisconsin taxpayers back almost $1 billion dollars due to economic growth and this is what is reported? Sad.

Too funny! I wonder if he introduced him as a close personal friend.

I thought all you liberals were all about second chances and forgiveness...remember "Remove the Box" drive you all are pushing for on work applications?

Obviously, there is no Big Brother in Walker's government unlike the NSA apparatus that know's what you had for breakfast this morning.

This guy has apparently gone beyond a second chance. Still, I guess it shows that Gov. Walker has "banned the box."

masterson1: "Walker is returning Wisconsin taxpayers back almost $1 billion dollars due to economic growth and this is what is reported? Sad." No, my friend. The paper reported on Walker's tax refund proposal. You just chose to read about the sex offender on stage with him instead.

So what exactly is the story here? Could it be that Walker thinks his image has been harmed by standing on stage with a convicted person? Who cares?

I'm a Dem and do not like Walker's politics at all, but regarding the sex offender who gained employment I hope it works out for him. If all companies had zero tolerance policies, what happens to these people? How would they support themselves? Also, the investigation reported his record, but it doesn't say if he went through any type of rehab/counseling program to get repeat offenders on the right track (a liberal principle, I know). I don't know if it is possible to rehabilitate a sex offender since it is a mental illness. So we as a society must come up with a solution as to what to do with such sick people.
