Indiana Official Reportedly Advised Scott Walker To Stage A Phony Violent Attack By Union Supporters

During the intense public battle with public employee unions last month, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) received an intriguing email from an admirer claiming to be a deputy prosecutor from Indiana. The email suggested that Walker should fake an attack on himself, in order to create sympathy for his cause and damage the reputation of the unions. The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism has the email:

I’ve been involved in GOP politics here in Indiana for 18 years, and I think that the situation
in WI presents a good opportunity for what’s called a “false flag” operation. If you could
employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions’ cause to physically
attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the public unions. Currently,
the media is painting the union protest as a democratic uprising and failing to mention the role
of the DNC and unbrella union organizations in the protest. Employing a false flag operation
would assist in undercutting any support that the media may be creating in favor of the unions.
