Smoking is good for you and so is Scott Walker

Cognitive Dissidence dug into the records of exactly how Scott Walker spent a half a million dollars on his defense against the John Doe investigation in 2012 (the one he is merely “cooperating” with).

He learned that Scott Walker gave around $10,000 of his defense funds to pay an international PR firm called APCO Worldwide that, among other things, once created a front group for Philip Morris called The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition or “TASSC”.  TASSC was tasked with fighting EPA’s “junk science” around second hand smoke.

Clearly there’s no job too repugnant for professionals like APCO. Get the details.
