Scott Walker: Explain Whether Or Not You Lied To Congress

To be delivered to Governor Scott Walker

Petition Statement

Though he's always maintained that his budget bill was solely about balancing the budget (even in testimony to Congress), footage has surfaced of Walker reassuring his largest donor, Wisconsin billionaire Diane Hendricks, less than a month before he unveiled his plan. She asked how she could help Walker make Wisconsin a red state, and he offered up public employees' collective bargaining rights as a first step, part of a strategy to "divide and conquer."

So did Scott Walker lie?

Demand that Walker address Congress' request to answer the following 3 questions by 10 a.m. Monday, June 4th, 2012. Voters in Wisconsin deserve to know if he lied before they cast their votes.
There are currently 31,060 signatures. NEW goal - We need 40,000 signatures!

Petition Background

U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings asked Walker to reply by June 1st to the following:

(1) If he disputes that he met with Diane Hendricks, one of his top donors, on January 18, 2011.

(2) If he disputes that, in response to a question from Ms. Hendricks about whether Wisconsin could become “a completely red state,” he responded “Oh, yeah,” and that his “first step” as Governor would be to “deal with collective bargaining for all public employee unions” in order to “divide and conquer”.

(3) If he now wishes to withdraw his sworn testimony before the Committee in which he claimed that he never had a conversation with respect to his actions in Wisconsin and using them to punish members of the opposition party and their donor base.

Rep. Cummings continued: "In the interview with your local Fox affiliate, you stated that “the facts are the facts.” We agree, and in this instance, the facts were captured on videotape.

Did Scott Walker lie under oath? Wisconsin voters would like to know.
