Scott Walker finally declared his presidential candidacy on Monday, becoming the latest entrant into a crowded field of governors, senators, ex-politicos, doctors and a racist, loudmouth billionaire with bad hair. To mark the occasion, I thought I'd re-post the story I wrote a couple of years ago about Walker's cozy relationship with Michael Best & Friedrich. The firm helped him with many of his signature accomplishments as governor, accomplishments that convinced many in the GOP that he would be a good presidential candidate in 2016. Like many relationships, things changed.
