Gov. Walker wants license revoked for teacher reinstated after looking at porn

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker wants the state to revoke the license of a teacher who was reinstated by an arbitrator, after getting fired for downloading porn at school.

Andrew Harris' union successfully challenged the firing -- and the Republican Walker said it was a good example of why his Act 10 union bargaining clamp down was necessary.

The Middleton-Cross Plains School Board put Harris back to work on Monday, after the State Supreme Court refused to consider overturning the arbitrator's decision to reinstate him.

The union said the termination was too harsh, saying Harris' colleagues also looked at porn at school and only got suspensions and warnings.

In a letter to state Superintendent Tony Evers, Walker said he heard from concerned parents, and concluded that the arbitration process, "failed the school district and the students."

The governor said it appeared that the Harris case qualifies under a clause that gives the superintendent the ability to revoke a teaching license for immoral conduct.

Harris' attorney, William Haus, said it's no more of Walker's business than anybody else. Haus told the AP, "My guy made a mistake. He shouldn't have done what he did. That doesn't mean he should get hung from the highest tree."
