He is threatening to run again.

Ousted Gov. Walker says he may run again

"Walker says it's likely that Republicans will want a "new face" for the governor's race in 2022 but "who knows." Walker says he's not ruling anything out, including a run for U.S. Senate in 2022."

He'll probably run for RoJo's seat. He'd be an early frontrunner today, but an awful lot can change in four years.

Then we have to 4 years to remind everyone ... "26 Ways Scott Walker Ruined (or Embarrassed) Wisconsin"

https://medium.com/@omersarain/26-ways- ... u3Xt9CHtvY

15. Claimed his bald spot resulted from hitting his head on a sink

Doctors had a laugh with this one: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34023654

19. Signed law making it easier for school districts to keep offensive Indian mascot names

The ACLU and the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, representing 12 tribes in Wisconsin and Michigan, opposed the decision. A slap in the face to Native populations in Wisconsin, who now carry the burden of proof to demonstrate a name is offensive.

21. Six campaign staffers were convicted for embezzlement, money laundering, and campaigning from Walker’s Milwaukee County Executive office: https://madison.com/ct/news/local/write ... 963f4.html

Speaking of email servers — Walker’s campaign team secretly sent over 3,000 emails from his County office: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politi ... why-n35886

Former Governor Scott Walker Becomes Latest Rich Republican to Mislead the Public on How Taxes Work
https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/former- ... soc_trk=ma

"Take the former governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, a darling of the uber-libertarian Koch brothers. If anyone thought he was content to just help Republicans stage a powergrab from the incoming Democratic administration and then retire to give motivation speeches on bootstrap nonsense, they were sadly mistaken. He's also showing up in middle schools to give anti-tax lectures:...Hard to argue with that, right? It's literally the same nonsense that Steve Scalise and other Republicans were peddling, except instead of dumping it into the bottomless abyss of Twitter, Walker forcing it on kids. But because he was dumb enough to post it on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez had a clap-back for him."

i don't see where walker had an ideology at all -- conservative, reactionary, libertarian, anarchist, thatcherite, old right, new right, national syndicalist or anything else . . . he is just a nihilist with a lower-case n and a greed-head: strike left strike right whatever deserves to go will be destroyed, that that doesn't will withstand the blow -- a misappropriation of proudhon and kropotkin are probably the furthest he would get . . . and that after reading the correct quote on a bathroom stall . . .
