MSNBC: Meet the Leftist Who Prank Called Gov. Walker


After a liberal writer phoned in a prank call to the Wisconsin governor's office, it would seem logical to condemn the juvenile trickery and blatant lack of respect for a statewide officeholder.

But not if you're MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell. On Wednesday evening, O'Donnell scored an exclusive interview with the prank caller and suggested Gov. Scott Walker's willingness to talk to the David Koch impersonator sheds light on the scheming "right-wing" and how Republicans are "bought and paid for by Koch Industries."

How's that for twisted logic?

As we reported earlier Wednesday, despite the writer's attempts to bait Gov. Walker into an embarrassing conversation, Walker doesn't bite.

This isn't the first time the left has tried to capitalize on phony calls to notable Republican figures. During the 2008 presidential campaign, the left scoffed at then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin who answered a prank call from a Canadian comedy duo pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
