Dem: Scott Walker 'tightening the noose, literally' around blacks (The Hill)

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) said Monday that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican presidential candidate, is "tightening the noose, literally" around African-Americans.

Moore, a black lawmaker from Milwaukee, made the comment during a phone call with reporters that coincided with Walker campaigning in the early voting state of South Carolina.

Moore said Walker was "literally campaigning around the state, saying you don't want to be like Milwaukee, while at the same time really tightening the noose, literally, around African-Americans."
