Walker reacts to call for his arrest

Posted:

PEWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker is dismissing a call for his arrest, calling it "ridiculous".

Walker commented during a tour of Midwest Engineering Systems in Pewaukee on Thursday.

He told workers that job creation is his priority and that attacks on his support for ending same-day voter registration, including a call for his arrest by Milwaukee alderman Ashanti Hamilton, are baseless.

"My guess is, for some of these individuals and groups they don't have an alternative to what we're talking about in the economy they don't have better suggestions for what we want to do on the economy improving...so they just want to distract attention," said Walker.

The governor has said eliminating same-day voter registration is not on his legislative priority list, but he would sign a bill if it made it to his desk.
