Scott Walker talks prison, future as family man

He blames former Gov. Haley Barbour, a Coast mayor and two Coast attorneys for the time he served at a federal prison camp in Pensacola, Fla. He didn’t name Barbour, but was quick to say the “former governor” was unwilling to speak up, which would have saved him. Walker did not want to name the attorneys or mayor, either….

…Barbour, reached at his law office in Jackson, had no recollection of the grant. He made some calls to check with his staff, then said: “I have no recollection of ever talking to him about this. And nobody on my staff who worked on it believes I talked to Scott Walker about it. I don’t understand what I could have done to help him.”

Walker said he is working on a book with New York publishers who approached him….

…Scott Walker said he is working for a company in Hattiesburg. He did not want to mention the company’s name, he said, for fear of any stigma. Walker is working in sales and government relations, he said. Government relations involves helping the business navigate city and county regulations and systems, he said.
