Scott Walker admits renting out house, tells aldermen city official said he could

Scott Walker quit fighting accusations that he and his wife, Trinity, have been running a short-term rental business at their 5-bedroom home on East Beach for the past year or more.

Instead, Walker told the Board of Aldermen on Tuesday night that the head of the city Planning Department gave them permission to do it, rent short-term, while they waited for the city to approve a permit.

City leaders didn’t go for that….

…But the vote was, “no.” All the aldermen except Joey Bellman of Ward 3 voted to deny the Walkers a permit.
