Wisconsin Titanic: Criminal Probe Heading Scott Walker’s Way
April 11, 2011
By Sarah Jones
This morning, a criminal complaint filed in circuit court alleges that William Gardner, the president and CEO
of Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Co., skirted campaign donation laws by soliciting employees to give to Scott Walker’s campaign and then reimbursing them, in what amounts to two felony counts. It has also come out that Walker’s campaign then reimbursed Gardner and seven additional railroad employees to the tune of $43,800, which indicates a criminal probe is imminent of Walker’s campaign.
