Walker was for the nominee (for University of Wisconsin Board of Regents) before he was against him
From the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal:
Gov. Scott Walker’s withdrawal of his student appointment to the University of Wisconsin System’s Board of Regents — a student who signed a petition calling for the governor’s recall two years ago — is drawing fire from Democratic lawmakers.
The governor’s press secretary confirmed Thursday that Walker withdrew the nomination of Joshua Inglett, who just completed his sophomore year at UW-Platteville, but did not respond to questions about the reason for the withdrawal.
Walker refused to say why he pulled Inglett’s appointment.
“We’ve got plenty of other good candidates and we’re not going to get into specifics about it,” Walker told reporters. “We’ve made a decision to withdraw the name in our office and we’ll be submitting another name to the board of regents.”
Inglett told a Madison television station his appointment was withdrawn Wednesday, shortly after the governor’s office asked him if he had signed the recall petition.
Asked if he routinely checked potential appointees against the database of petition signers, Walker said, “I don’t do anything in that regard.”
If indeed the reason for the nomination withdrawal was the signature on the petition, then it would appear about a million individuals would no longer be eligible for appointment to state government positions.
