Walker bashes Burke for Land Purchase, despite defending that same Purchase to HUD.

One small detail absolutely trashes Scott Walker’s attempt to deceive voters about a $12 million Mary Burke land deal that never resulted in job creation. The ad states:
"As Jim Doyle's commerce secretary, Mary Burke spent $12.5 million dollars to buy a vacant lot for a company that said it had no plans to create jobs in Wisconsin." 
But look who defended that same deal:
jsonlineThe Walker administrations own housing official, Lisa J. Marks, has questioned HUD's findings, according to the documents released Tuesday. Marks argued to HUD that while the Abbott jobs didn't materialize, the purchase that blocked the truck stop opened the door to major spinoff development, including Uline's new corporate headquarters and distribution facility that already employ more than 850. And Pleasant Prairie officials talk up the 2006 deal, saying the plan was part of a long-term strategy involving Abbott.
Strike before the Truth is Known: This is Walker’s MO. In fact, all Republicans do this without retraction.

As for Burke’s feelings on this:
A Burke spokeswoman said Tuesday that the candidate strongly disagrees with HUD's finding and would challenge it if elected governor.

And that's all you need to know about why the RW propaganda hone does what it does. Especially when we have a media that is too lazy and gutless to call it out as it happens
