MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker says the IRS's screening of conservative political groups seeking tax-exempt status is ``more than just a political scandal.''
Walker commented Tuesday on the issue after he and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal sent a letter urging President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the case.
Walker says the extra scrutiny of conservative groups by the IRS is ``a real threat to our freedoms.'' He says the issue is much bigger than a temporary political story out of Washington and everyone should be concerned about the IRS targeted certain groups.
In their letter, Jindal and Walker call the allegations ``Big Brother come to life.''
Both Walker and Jindal are potential Republican candidates for president in 2016.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker says he spent most of the time during his meeting with the Dalai Lama listening.
Walker met with the Dalai Lama on Tuesday morning, before the Tibetan spiritual leader was scheduled to give a speech before the Wisconsin Legislature.
Walker says ``there wasn't a whole lot of dialogue'' during his meeting at the Alliant Center in Madison, a couple miles away from the Capitol. Walker says of his meeting, ``It was more or less a greeting. I spent most of the time listening.''
Walker says the Dalai Lama gave him a couple of his books and talked about his travels and how happy he was to be back in Wisconsin. His visit this week is his ninth to Madison.
Attorneys avoided a potentially painful trial in the case of a fatal La Crosse County crash, but emotions ran high Monday at a plea and sentencing hearing...
Heath Erlandson pleads guilty to causing the traffic death of Paul Betsinger two years ago. A crime lab report said Erlandson had traces of cocaine and other drugs in his system at the time his car hit Betsinger's motorcycle. Paul's sister, Brenda Wilson, says the wounds of her brother's death are 'ripped open again' because of the hearing. A defense attorney argued that there's no solid evidence that Erlandson was under the influence of drugs or impaired at all when the crash happened.
