Prank calls aren’t just for bored pre-teens. Website editors like Ian Murphy, who phoned Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday pretending to be billionaire David Koch, are not above sophomoric posing and fake calls.

Walker has recently come under fire for his budget proposal that would cut union rights for public workers in the state, so it’s not entirely shocking that someone would try to coax him into saying something scandalous. During the chat, Murphy probed Walker with questions about the union protesters and bill opponents.

This act of dishonesty has affected many prominent folks, so take a look at our recap of heavily publicized prank call scandals.
