Former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Sunday called out Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris for visiting Jacob Blake and not the two police deputies ambushed in her own state of California.
Blake was shot during an altercation with police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, at the end of August. While critics of the incident originally said it was police brutality, the Kenosha Professional Police Association released a statement correcting false information, saying that Blake was armed and not complying with officers.
Approximately an hour and a half before Walker's tweet blasting Harris for visiting Blake rather than the deputies, the California senator posted a statement concerning the L.A. County incident over the weekend.
Just last week, Blake's attorney Benjamin Crump reported that Harris visited Blake and told him she was "proud of him and how he is working through his pain."
🔦 Prior to the police shooting, Blake was charged on July 6 with felony third-degree sexual assault, misdemeanor trespassing, and disorderly conduct connected to domestic abuse, according to Wisconsin court documents.
