Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker “Lying” Says Democratic Senator Erpenbach

Wisconsin Democrat Senator Jon Erpenbach

Wisconsin Senator Jon Erpenbach — one of the “Wisconsin 14″ who have taken refuge in Illinois — accuses Governor Scott Walker of “lying” for claiming that the Senators must return to Madison to avoid mass public-sector layoffs. Erpenbach, who spoke from an undisclosed location to Glen Gardner of the Public News Service, also responded to questions about whether any of the renegade Wisconsin senators can be peeled off, and whether these wounds can be healed eventually.
