Recall

Police Union Endorses Tom Barrett

Almost immediately after announcing her candidacy for the Democratic primary to Wisconsin's recall election on Scott Walker, Kathleen Falk had received the endorsements of most major state union groups. But not all of them. Tuesday, her primary opponent Tom Barrett received the support of the state's biggest police union, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association. Before the endorsement was made, the WPPA executive director Jim Palmer told The Daily Beast, that by making an endorsement so early on in the race, the major unions "deprived their members and their leaders the opportunity to make an informed decision."
