Democrats file complaint over Walker website


Gov. Scott Walker is defending a new website his office launched despite a complaint from the Democratic Party that it is a violation of state ethics laws.

The Democratic Party said Tuesday it was filing a complaint with the Government Accountability Board alleging that Walker illegally used taxpayer resources to host and maintain a website that serves a political purpose.

The new website launched Monday touts what Walker calls success stories under his proposals, including the requirement that public workers pay more for their health insurance and pension costs.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says the governor's office conferred with the GAB and was told the information was OK to post. Werwie says everything on the site is similar to what the governor has been talking about for months.
