The Huffington Post Is Pretty Sure It Has the Story That Will End Scott Walker's Bid for the Presidency

Boom goes the dynamite.

But Walker breaking the rules while campaigning goes back even further, to his time as a college student at Marquette University, which the Democratic super PAC American Bridge is trying to remind people. American Bridge has been hammering Walker over the so-called John Doe scandal in recent days.

...

In 1988, Walker wanted to become president of the school's student government, known as the Associated Students at Marquette University. He was running against John Quigley, a liberal student, in a race that became incredibly contentious. Election rules said that presidential candidates could not begin campaigning until after they registered, which started on Feb. 3.

Walker, however, was caught campaigning on Jan. 24....

At the meeting, according to a student in attendance, Walker asked the fraternity members, "What can ASMU do for the Inter-Fraternity council?" and told them he intended to run for president of ASMU in a few weeks.

As punishment, the campus elections commission prohibited Walker from campaigning until Feb. 4, 7:00 p.m. -- 24 hours after other candidates were officially allowed to begin. In response, Walker said, "I found no fault in their decision. ... All it does is limit me for one day."

He said villainously.

I don't think you people understand the gravity of this situation: In college, even though Walker knew he couldn't start campaigning until February 3, he told a group of people he intended to run for office on February 3. He was assigned a one-day penalty for this grave infraction.

In related news, Rachel Maddow just emailed me: "Looks like I've got my March programming all set."
