After the Government Accountability Board filings late Tuesday, the Barrett campaign drew attention to new information showing that Governor Walker has transferred $100,000 to his John Doe criminal defense fund in the last several weeks.
Walker paid $70,000 to the criminal defense fund on May 3 and $30,000 on May 17, according to the new campaign finance reports, and as reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. On April 13, he transferred $60,000.
Meanwhile, citing the Democratic National Committee's failure to invest in the recall, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee announced Tuesday that it is putting another $100,000 into the Wisconsin recall race, to help the state Democratic Party with its get-out-the-vote drive.
"The Wisconsin recall is a top national priority for progressives -- and it should be for the national Democratic Party," said Adam Green, PCCC co-founder. "When we heard that the Democratic National Committee wasn't giving Wisconsin Democrats the resources needed to get out the vote, the PCCC made a strategic decision to do less fundraising for our own Wisconsin TV ads and instead focus our attention on righting the DNC's wrong. We're proud that in the last 9 days, thousands of PCCC members helped us raise $100,000 for Wisconsin Democrats to get out the vote in the final stretch."
