We review a bad week for Scott Walker, including: Walker stumbling badly in a TV interview trying to explain away insurance industry's influence on his BadgerCare Decision; Walker saying he doesn't believe the minimum wage "serves a purpose"; and a tied Marquette poll. We also discuss last week's Supreme Court decision to block voter ID, Judge Randa's latest disastrous decision on campaign coordination, and new revelations that Wisconsin taxpayers have paid millions to private schools that were later barred from the state's voucher system.
