Scott Walker’s Hiring Problem

By  | 

At the same time he’s fighting the unions in Wisconsin…he hired the kid of a donor to oversee a very important, high paying regulatory position?


Just in his mid-20s, Brian Deschane has no college degree, very little management experience and two drunken-driving convictions.

Yet he has landed an $81,500-per-year job in Gov. Scott Walker’s administration overseeing environmental and regulatory matters and dozens of employees at the Department of Commerce. Even though Walker says the state is broke and public employees are overpaid, Deschane already has earned a promotion and a 26% pay raise in just two months with the state.

Credibility officially shot.
