The email came to Gov. Scott Walker from the personal account of a deputy prosecutor and Republican activist in Indiana.
After praise for Walker, the email — sent Feb. 19, during union demonstrations against Walker’s budget repair bill — then took a darker turn. It suggested that the situation in Wisconsin presented “a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation.”The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism made the discovery when it was reviewing Walker's emails, which was released as part of an open-records settlement with media organizations.
“If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions’ cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions,” the email said.
Lam just resigned, according to a Johnson County press release.
Blue Cheddar reminds us that Lam sent his email the same day another Indiana prosecutor advocated using live ammunition on protesters.
Jeffrey Cox, a deputy attorney general for the state, tweeted that police should “use live ammunition” against the protestors. He was fired the next day...We have just one question. What the hell is wrong with these people?
