press release, which adds that the May figure was down from 8.3 percent in June, 2010.
Which is true. But what Republican Scott Walker's press release doesn't tell you is that the unemployment rate was reduced from 9.2 percent to 7.4 percent under the Democratic administration of former Governor Jim Doyle between January, 2010, and January, 2011, when Walker assumed the office. And since Scott Walker assumed the office, the unemployment rate has increased from 7.4 percent to 7.6 percent.
In other words, it was continuing to brighten until Walker took office.
Now how's about brightening a few Senate districts on August 9, 2011.
