One letter writer, a former GOP candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates, felt it was perfectly acceptable for Wisconsin to break its promises to state employees for pensions earned by those employees. I doubt the majority of citizens endorse the breaking of solemn promises by anyone or depriving workers of earned benefits. This Republican failed to point out that Mr. Walker earmarked $160,000 for a legal defense fund and that Mr. Walker spent over $30 million, two-thirds contributed by non-Wisconsin sources, buying a lot of false advertising. Mr. Walker campaigned against this recall for over six months. By contrast, his opponent conducted a one-month campaign and spent only $3-to-$4 million.
