Train, Democrats reverse course on Walker rail sticker (UPDATE)
The Wisconsin Democratic Party’s controversial sticker showing the engine of a high-speed rail train hitting the head of Gov.-elect Scott Walker has apparently changed directions.
The sticker displayed on the party’s website now shows the train going in the other direction.
Graeme Zielinski, the spokesman for the party, said he was unaware of any change. He said the sticker he saw had the engine going toward Walker’s head, not away. He said he would have to check with the party’s graphic designer and new media coordinator.
“I’ll have to check on that,” said Zielinski, who was sitting in the Minneapolis airport Thursday afternoon waiting for a flight to Milwaukee.
Rep. Robin Vos, a Racine Republican, said the red marks imply blood. He said the sticker is indecent and Democrats should stop offering it.
Democrats are still outraged Walker, a Republican, refused federal money for high-speed rail between Madison and Milwaukee.
