Anyone hoping to attend an event featuring Gov. Scott Walker in Waupaca Thursday will need to show a driver’s license because the company hosting the event says security rules require it to ban noncitizens.
The luncheon at Centerline Machine, a Waupaca manufacturing company, will include a “State of the State update” by Walker, according to an invitation from the Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce. To enter the company, the invitation reads, visitors “will need a driver’s license as proof of U.S. citizenship.”
Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said he was unaware of the license requirement and said it was “in no way directed by the governor or anyone on staff.”
