Gov. Scott Walker releases partial list of mansion visitors
MADISON — A liberal advocacy group is objecting to Gov. Scott Walker’s response to an open records request seeking details about who visited the governor’s mansion after he won re-election through late April.
Walker’s office on Wednesday released visitor logs used by the State Patrol for security purposes. The records detailed visitors to the mansion from April 9 through Aug. 26.
But One Wisconsin Now had requested records dating back to Feb. 5, the day after Walker won re-election.
The group’s director Scot Ross says it is “woefully inadequate” that Walker did not fulfill their full request and that it took six months to turn over what they did.
Bill Lueders, head of the Freedom of Information Council, says no one requesting records should be “jerked around” like One Wisconsin Now was.
