Scott Walker Has Averaged Almost One Taxpayer-Funded Flight Per Day For The Last Three Years

By Sahid Fawaz

It appears that the governor of Wisconsin loves to fly on the public’s dime. New information has come to light that the governor has spent an unconscionable amount of time flying the last three years.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

“A liberal advocacy group says Republican Gov. Scott Walker used the state airplane to make 869 flights since he dropped out of the presidential race in September 2015, including 11 trips of less than 64 miles.

One Wisconsin Now compiled public records on flight data to release the findings Monday. The flights cost taxpayers about $818,000.

Walker had no immediate comment.”
