Scott Walker

Enters Marquette University


Walker enrolls at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During his freshman year he becomes a student senator tasked to investigate a scandal where members of student government has a homecoming dinner at the Pfister hotel charged to student government accounts. Walker’s committee recommends impeachment and the student body president and vice-president resign. There is a full trial in the student senate and the accused are acquitted. Glen Barry, who is caught up in the scandal, calls it a “McCarthyite investigation” saying that:

no criminal charges of any kind, and no hard evidence of wrong-doing by anyone [was found] – Walker grandstands and leads a student government trial of myself and others, that could have been avoided if he so chose. Walker lost on all counts, but not before destroying a few people’s reputations, and amassing personal power.
