Walker's Dirty Double Standard

Gov. Scott Walker decries protesters at proposed iron ore mine
Gov. Scott Walker says activities of protesters at the site of proposed iron ore mine near Lake Superior "has no place in Wisconsin."
Gov. Scott Walker blasts anti-mining activists
"The type of harassment and abuse we saw on the recent video of radical activists at Gogebic Taconite's proposed mine site has no place in Wisconsin. These extremists - who are disrupting work and causing harm to law-abiding employees - should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," Walker said.
Was Scott Walker calling for the full prosecution of the Tea Partiers and other disruptors (during the last election cycle) who impeded, interrupted and scuffled at their opponents Town Hall meetings and other gatherings?

And, nevermind the environmental harassment caused by mining.

Seems Scott Walker likes his politics and his business really dirty.
