Walker Pockets Raise While Giving The Finger To...Everyone

So Mr. Brown Bag Lunch, Mr. I'm Gonna Pay My Pension As Soon As I Take Office, Mr. No Pay Raises For State Workers For Two Years, Mr. We're Broke otherwise known as the soon-to-be-recalled Scott Walker - quietly has pocketed a 5% Governor's salary raise voted in during the Doyle Administration.

Nice.

It is true he did not impose the salary increase, it is also true that he could have given the money back to the State and did not.

With a overwhelming majority in both chambers, it would have been simple enough to roll back that increase (and make some political hay of it), but naturally being the douche-ist of them all he just pocketed the raise and slashed spending and budgets for everyone else.
