Gov. Scott Walker: Screw Your Kids, Give Their Christmas Gifts to Me

Scott Walker Christmas

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker knows that Christmas isn’t about crass commercialism; it’s about giving to those less fortunate (aka his chances at reelection).

Scott Walker, who is up for reelection next year, is currently tied in the polls with Democrat Mary Burke. In order to stave off a Democratic win, he needs all the Christmas funding he can get – or some kind of Christmas miracle. So this year, in the spirit of Christmas and political campaigning, Walker’s campaign team sent an email asking donors to forgo giving their children Christmas presents and instead donate to his reelection effort.

The email, send out over the weekend, read:

“Instead of venturing into the cold this Black Friday, stay in and give your children a gift that will keep on giving … Donate $5, $10 or $25 to help Governor Walker get re-elected and save your children from a future of double-digit tax increases and billion-dollar deficits.”

And the note didn’t stop there. Walker and friends went on to point out that any “electronics or toys” that parents buy for their children “will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season,” whereas a contribution to the Walker reelection effort will help to create “a Wisconsin as great as the one [Walker] grew up in.”

You hear that children? Toys are temporary, but political contributions are forever.

The Walker campaign staffer responsible for this Grinch-like fundraising appeal, 23 year-old Deputy Finance Director Taylor Palmisano, has since been fired from the campaign – but not for asking parents to ruin their children’s Christmas. No, she was fired for sending out racist Tweets about Hispanics back in 2011.
