U.S. Senate candidate Scott Walker faces over $1,500 in fines from DelDOT over the illegal placement of his makeshift campaign signs from his failed Congressional run in the 2018 midterm election.
WGMD News submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) requesting the amount of money accrued in fines from Scott Walker’s campaign signage.
Walker was fined 62 times and owes a total of $1,600 for the illegal placement of his campaign signs, according to the FOIA.
WGMD’s Jake Smith spoke with Scott Walker on Delmarva LIVE and asked if Scott Walker was still having issues with DelDOT regarding his campaign signs, which Walker said he expected them to be on his back very soon.
“They’re not saying anything to me now, but I expect to have DelDOT on my back, and they’re going to do their job,” Walker said. “They’ve treated me quite fairly, I must say, so I really can’t complain. In fact, they’ve bent over backwards a few times to give me some leeway over the signs, but I am putting some signs up this weekend.”
Known for his controversial antics, Walker switched his party affiliation and announced a run against Senator Chris Coons in the 2020 Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
Walker lost his bid for Congress to Lisa Blunt-Rochester after securing the Republican nomination in the 2018 midterm election.
