    Madison's mayor and police chief Thursday called on Gov. Scott Walker to explain statements he made in a secretly recorded phone conversation that he "thought about" planting troublemakers among the thousands of demonstrators at the Capitol.

    "Someone in his inner circle raised seriously the possibility of hiring people to come in and apparently create violence in my city," Mayor Dave Cieslewicz said. "I find it appalling, and I want to know who that was."

    Police Department Chief Noble Wray and Mayor Dave Cieslewicz both said Walker’s statement was troubling on the surface and its potential implications need to be further explored.

    Thank you.

    Now we have more reasonable cause to doubt the portrayal of the protesters that some on here have tried to cast them as. This is in addition to the what the former chairman of the Tea Party Express wants to do with the support of the Tea Party Patriot group and other local Tea Party chapters.
