Obama administration sets record for denying, censoring files

Reagan library curator disputes Gov. Walker's Bible story

Scott WalkerWisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's tale of how he came to hold the family Bible that President Ronald Reagan used when taking the oath of office doesn't match the memory of the presidential library curator charged with caring for the book.

A likely Republican candidate for president, Walker grew up during Reagan's presidency and holds him as a political role model. Walker, 47, frequently notes that his wedding anniversary and Reagan's birthday fall on the same date.

At a 2013 Reagan Day dinner in Milwaukee, Walker told a Reagan story that he said "gives me a little bit of a shiver."
