11:15 a.m.: Barrett releases new TV ad

Democrat Tom Barrett on Saturday released a new television ad that his compaign claims highlights new evidence that shows Gov. Scott Walker has been "stonewalling" the John Doe investigation into former Walker aides.

"After months of claiming he has cooperated fully with this criminal corruption probe, new evidence has come to light that shows Scott Walker has done the exact opposite,” said Barrett spokesman Phil Walzak. “Scott Walker is not a straight shooter and it's long past time this governor to come clean about why he has a criminal defense fund, why he won't release the emails, and whether he is a target of this investigation.”

@Rosie-You do mean a very small portion of the population dont you? Dont forget I as a private sector employee and tax payer, I am the one who pays wages!! So as I continue to be affected by the economy and my costs continue to rise, I am supposed to just sit back and allow the public sector employee to continue to recieve their lavish pensions? Allow them to have the power to bargain for more? HELL NO!! Its very apparent with the 4000 people who turned out at the tea party rally compared to a grand total of maybe 1500 people who turned out for the Clinton ralloury, the Ed Schultz, and the gathering in Madison all together oh and the whopping 100 people who turned out for Jesse Jackson. Hmmmmm seems like your statement could not be more inacurate than your ideology. Please think for yourself and not what your told to think.

No, I do not mean a small portion of the population! Many of us are effected by the things Walker has done. I do think for myself, thank you, and am not impressed by the way Walker is doing things. Others, in the past, have paid to get you where you are and it's our turn to do the same for those younger than we. Why should we allow our elected officials to use monies slated to help those in need to balance their budgets and make themselves look good at their expense. I'm sorry you can't see that helping others will eventually help us too.

Here's a pot calling a kettle black!

@Rosie-Think for yourself!!! Please explain to me why IL rasied taxes 65% are worse off then when the Gov took office? Which by the way Gov Walker took office at the same time. Please explain why the teachers in IL were just offered a 2% increase but turned it down and are now talking strike. Bottom like public employees are dependent upon the tax base when it shrinks so does their compensation. Dont forget they are public servants period!! Those jobs were not meant to make someone rich. You really dont understand. If its such a big deal then please explain why Federal Employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits then? So hypocritical and most def double standards!!!!
