WMR: Scott Walker related to GW Bush

Wisconsin Governor Walker a member of the Bush-Walker clan

A cousin of Wisconsin's unpopular Republican Governor Scott Walker, who is running in a rare recall election, has informed WMR that Walker is a member of the Bush-Walker family of former Presidents George H. W. Bush and George Walker Bush.
Governor Walker's cousin does not support his cousin's gubernatorial bid in Wisconsin.
Scott Walker, like George Herbert Walker and George Walker Bush, is a descendant of George Herbert Walker, a wealthy banker originally from St. Louis. 
Walker eventually became the President of the W. A. Harriman & Co. in New York. Walker's daughter Dorothy married  Prescott Bush. Dorothy and Prescott were the parents of George H. W, Bush.
George Walker owned a number of railroads, including the Missouri Pacific Railroad, that employed Walker relatives throughout the West, including Colorado.
In 2010, Scott Walker jokingly referred to George W. Bush as his "cousin" because of their close political views. 
However, Scott Walker, who was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado,  is a descendant of the same Walker-Bush clan that sired Presidents Bush.
Governor Walker is obviously trying to downplay his family connection to Bush, especially before the June 5 recall election.
