Walker spokesperson accuses Barrett of lying

A Gov. Scott Walker spokesperson is accusing Tom Barrett of lying.

In last night’s debate, Tom Barrett said that no one on his staff had ever been charged with a crime.

In November 2010, an receptionist in Barrett’s office named Joseph Cantu plead guilty in Milwaukee County court to two counts of battery and one count of disorderly conduct after having a fight with his girlfriend.

Cantu was placed on unpaid leave after the charges were filed.

A spokeswoman for Walker’s campaign said Barrett should apologize for the comments.
