Walker is a big, old hypocrite.
He repeatedly harps about how Senator Taylor is "raising tons of money from special interests in Madison" and other silly things like:
In fact, outsiders such as Governor Doyle and special interest groups in Madison and even Washington, DC are gathering loads of cash to influence our election in April.
He even gets his poor wife into the act of spreading these baseless claims. But even if it were true, how would he explain this email sent out by his campaign (the name and other personal information has been changed to protect the source)(emphasis mine):

He complains that Senator Taylor is getting special interest money from Madison, but is grateful for his own special interest money from Madison.
That makes him a big, old hypocrite.
