MADISON, Wis | Walker shouted down over GOP attempt to weaken his successor
MADISON, Wis. — Demonstrators booed outgoing Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker on Tuesday during a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, at times drowning out a high school choir with their own songs in protest of a Republican effort to gut the powers of his Democratic successor.
The governor, wearing a Santa tie, appeared unfazed as he flipped the switch while one protester shouted “Hey Walker! Go home!” He left without taking questions from reporters about the bills being considered in the rare lame-duck legislative session.
