Death Threats Against Walker

By WTMJ Newsroom. CREATED Jun 6, 2012

MILWAUKEE - New concerns of death threats have come against Governor Scott Walker the morning after he won a gubernatorial recall election.

Newsradio 620 WTMJ has confirmed a number of tweets which were aggregated and posted on Wednesday morning.

Those tweets describe various death threats against the Governor.

Many contain vulgar content, but one of them includes "Scott Walker will die within the next week.  I've already paid for the hit."

The Governor's spokesman tells 620WTMJ that they are aware of the threats, that Walker has security, and that his schedule will not change from what has been planned.
