The latest attack on Walker is that he has “up to” $50,000 in credit card debt to — wait for it — Sears.
We don’t know exactly how much because financial disclosures only are made in broad ranges, so it could be as little as $10,000. …
The Daily News does the hit on Walker, from the angle of it proving he’s not really a fiscal conservative:
2016 hopeful Scott Walker has tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt, owing money to a list of banks and stores including Sears and Barclays, a new report alleges.
The Daily Beast actually puts it in proper context, Scott Walker Is Just Like You! In Debt:
Scott Walker owes Sears up to $50,000.
According to his most recent financial disclosure forms, the governor owed between $10,000 and $100,000 to credit card companies in 2014. One of the cards listed is a Barclay Card, and the other is a Sears MasterCard.
“Over the years, the governor has given $370,000 of his salary back to taxpayers,” emailed AshLee Strong, a spokesperson for Walker’s Our American Revival PAC. “He has two kids in college, parents who live with him, a mortgage, car payments, and small credit card use. All in all, pretty ordinary stuff.”…
The Boston Globe noted that Walker has the lowest net worth of any serious presidential contender: -$72,500.
