I was alerted to this by Jeff Simpson at Cognitive Dissidence.
Keith Gilkes was, in 2010, Scott Walker’s campaign manager in his run for the Guv’s seat.
Scott Bauer was – and is – an Associated Press correspondent covering Wisconsin state government.
As of May 17th, Mark Neumann was Walker’s opponent in the Republican primary in the run up to the 2010 election.
In the email below, which was released in this week’s John Doe investigation-related #WalkerDocs document dump, we see Bauer alerting Gilkes to an impending attack Neumann is about to make on Walker based on Walker’s numerous absences from his elected post as Milwaukee County Executive.
“They are going to attack Walker for working what they call “part time hours” while he campaigns for governor, leaving taxpayers in the lurch”.
What would motivate Scott Bauer to do that?
The AP reporter Scott Bauer had picked a side: Scott Walker’s side.
