    Because the double standard is quite telling, something you ignore.

    Yes some people are doing guilt by association, just as you and some others on the right do that with Obama. He'll even J-Mac is entertaining the idea that this is a grand conspiracy against Walker by the evil unions. Gimmee a break.

    Others in this thread though (myself and even people on the left) are saying we should wait to see how this unfolds before jumping to conclusions.

    Look, if the people involved weren't close associates of Walkers and this wasn't an issue of questionable campaign matters, I doubt there'd be such a frinzy over it. But the fact that these people were close associates of the governor's AND campaign matters are front-and-center of the investigation makes this a rather interesting storyline. I don't think anyone - Democrat or Republican - could have ignored this story because it is what it is - newsworthy. If anything, I'd question why the media didn't report it because then it would appear to have been a cover-up.

    Stop with the partisan hack lines and just let the investigation play itself out. One way or another, the truth will be revealed. And if it turns out there's nothing to connect Gov. Walker to wrong-doing, you and Walker's supporters can all breathe a sign of relieve. But if it turns out there's alot more to this story, I'd say Liberals would have been vindicated. Until then, just chill.

    Partisan hack lines? If nothing is proven do you think liberals will come back and apologize for their charges and attempts at connection to Walker?

    It wasn't? That is questionable.

    That is an irrelevant question. If potato chips were not salty would they still taste good? If there were not crashes during NASCAR events would people still attend? If sex did not feel good would people still do it? Lets get back to reality please.

    Can you explain how one can be convicted of voter intimidation while the case is dropped?
