In IA, Slick Scott Walker equated homosexuality with pedophilia; In WI, he deflected questions from an immigrant while repeating an Obama attack 3 times

Think Progress notes:
     Last December, Walker requested Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen join the multi-state lawsuit led by Texas. At the time, Walker condemned the president’s executive actions for exceeding “the limits of his administrative powers.”
     But in the past, Walker twice signed resolutions backing programs that would have granted legal status to undocumented immigrants as a county executive in Milwaukee County. And in 2013, Walker endorsed legal status for undocumented immigrants.
In Iowa, on Tuesday, Walker slyly equated homosexuality and pedophilia:
     IJReview asked Walker, an Eagle Scout, how he felt about Boy Scouts of America’s expected reversal of its ban on gay troop leaders:
     “I was an Eagle Scout, my kids have been involved, Tonette (Walker) was a den mother.
     “I have had a lifelong commitment to the Scouts and support the previous membership policy because it protected children and advanced Scout values.”
     Promoting bigoted views that equate homosexuality with pedophilia? Breathe a sigh of relief, Iowa evangelicals: His wife hasn’t softened him one bit.
