Scott Walker Received Money From Companies That Outsource Jobs, Despite Criticizing Rival

Posted: Updated:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has received $68,500 in campaign donations from corporations that outsource jobs, according to a report from Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based WQOW, which referenced data from Walker's latest campaign finance report.

The outsourcing corporations that contributed to Walker include, but are not limited to: WellPoint, Caterpillar, Deloitte, General Motors and Pfizer.

The news of these donations come as Walker has criticized his Democratic opponent Mary Burke over the fact that her family business, Trek Bicycle, makes some of its bike products in China, Germany and the Netherlands.

FactCheck.org noted that Walker helped create the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation -- which included Trek in a marketing campaign. Walker is also lagging behind in his promise to reach his goal of creating 250,000 private-sector jobs in Wisconsin during his first term.
