David Hookstead, known around the University of Wisconsin for his UW Confessions page and his empty-headed claims regarding rape culture (it’s “nonexistent”), has once again caused a public stir, this time in his attempt to endorse Gov. Scott Walker.

Time to keep Wisconsin growing.” The post that was later removed due to Hookstead’s contemptible history of blatant misogyny and the campaign’s wish to distinguish itself and Walker from such a radical figure.
