Scott Walker uses O'Donnell Tragedy for "Disgusting...blatant poltical purposes" on Campaign and County Time.

Remember this Scott Walker statement, "It is disgusting that anyone would use a tragedy for such blatant political purposes," because it describes exactly what Walker did with the O’Donnell parking structure accident that killed a 15-year-old boy on June 24, 2010.

For Walker, the ends justified the means in his efforts to become the next governor. Where the John Doe investigation let Walker off, even though it successfully prosecuted his completely corrupt handpicked staff, this O’Donnell effort removes all doubt. 

jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker worked simultaneously with his campaign staff and county aides in coordinating responses to media inquiries, open records requests and news stories about the 2010 O'Donnell Park tragedy, according to newly released emails. The records show that Walker was integrally involved in the efforts to challenge any negative publicity
Here’s that Walker line again, directed at both his campaign and county staff.
"It is disgusting that anyone would use a tragedy for such blatant political purposes," Walker wrote in a draft statement that he sent on July 20, 2010, to a small circle of campaign and county staff, including campaign manager Keith Gilkes, campaign adviser R.J. Johnson and Chief of Staff Tom Nardelli.
How clear is this connection, and how “disgusting” was it to “use a tragedy for such blatant political purposes?”
Walker's top Milwaukee County fiscal aide, Cindy Archer, emailed Walker and Walker campaign aides on July 8 that "we may be responding too quickly" to requests for O'Donnell-related records made by his Republican primary rival, Mark Neumann, and by the state Democratic Party. "My sense from Keith is that we should be operating one step above ignoring them," Archer says in an email to county staffer Kelly Rindfleisch.

“One step above ignoring them,” with regards to the death of a 15 boy? Still not completely disgusted by this sociopath?
