walker conference

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to share the stage at a Florida conference featuring some of the most extreme and divisive figures in American politics today, says One Wisconsin Now.

Promotional materials for the Student Action Summit 2017: A Turning Point USA Event indicate Walker, who is running for re-election in 2018, will appear at the conference with:

• Sebastian Gorka, a former Trump aide with ties to Nazi-allied groups.

• Dinesh D’Souza, a convicted felon who vocally supports U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

• White nationalist Steve Bannon, along with what One Wisconsin Now called "a cavalcade of other right-wing purveyors of sexism, racism, homophobia and xenophobia."

“No doubt many Wisconsinites would enjoy a December getaway to Florida,” said OWN executive director Scot Ross. “But unlike Scott Walker, most Wisconsinites wouldn’t be willing to share a stage with the likes of white nationalists, extremists with ties to Nazi groups and supporters of pedophile Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.”

Walker, according to the publicized lineup, is the only elected official attending.

One Wisconsin Now raised the question of whether Walker would use state tax dollars for his travels or if his campaign or private funders would pay the governor's way for the three-day event in West Palm Beach.

Ross said, “With a lineup like this, will Scott Walker be delivering his remarks under the glare of the spotlight or the glow of a tiki torch?”
