Is Scotty Walker Related To Walker-Bush Clan?

John Marshall, occasional VOICES contributor, provided last Saturday night's post that asks a legitimate question: Is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, born in Colorado Springs, a distant relative of George Herbert Walker, an infamous businessman originally from St. Louis? If so, he would be a distant relative of George W. Bush -- the W stands for Walker, his great-grandfather from St. Louis. Hardly newsworthy, unless one contemplates the fact that the Walker/Bush clan is directly or indirectly tied to some of the most disturbing events in modern US and global history.
In 2010, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin posted a curious reference to off-the-cuff remarks between Walker and Bush about being cousins. Wayne Madsen, in his subscription-only e-zine, published a more-detailed story on this immediately before the June 5 recall election, stating as a fact Bush and Walker share a common blood line and points out that distant Walker relatives in Colorado Springs (where our Scottie is from) would be consistent with the George Herbert Walker family lineage.
