    I'm not lawyer (I don't even play on on DP ) but on the surface it appears he did something wrong, and I'm sure the Dems want to get rid of him for a number of reasons.

    The sheer number of politicians who I suspect have and do commit malfeaseance probably couldn't be documented inside the available bandwidth on DP. The ones who get caught are the only ones we hear about.

    GAH I hate politics some days.

    True that. If the shoe were on the other foot, Karl Rove would be creaming his pants. LOL.

    Discussion?

    Article is here.


    So, based on that article the investigation went nowhere, the judge quashed the investigation in January, and now the prosecutors are taking their campaign to the news papers because they failed in court.

    There is evidence of illegal political coordination going on here, but it is in the DA's office.

    Aaaaand The Washington Post finally runs a retraction saying that the breaking story was based on a unsubstantiated "theory" from the John Doe investigation and that the "theory" was thrown out by a judge.

    All of this was, of course, common knowledge when the Post (and every other liberal rag and news outlet) ran its breathless front page news story about the non-existent investigation.

    The leftist whackadoos in WI have really gone over the edge. Walker beat them in two elections so now they've resorted to baseless lawsuits. The left really is the scum of the earth.

    Crocker said the documents that were made public were never designed to be released and outlined a prosecutor’s theory.

    “In recent days, the documents and the allegations contained within have received significant media coverage,” said Crocker. “Contained in the documents is a reference to the request for production of documents that relates to an alleged criminal scheme. Gov. Walker’s name was included in this reference.

    "While these documents outlined the prosecutor’s legal theory, they did not establish the existence of a crime; rather, they were arguments in support of further investigation to determine if criminal charges against any person or entity are warranted.”

    Re: John Doe prosecutors allege Scott Walker at center of 'criminal scheme'

    This lawsuit is so transparent. The left in WI poured their heart and soul into the recall campaign and got beaten and embarrassed when Walker won the recall election. They're pissed off and are not going to let it go until they can somehow hurt Scott Walker. This is the essence of the modern American left, they are petty, fascist and vindictive to the core.

    The left is always talking about how abortion is settled law and how Obama won the election so those who don't like him must deal with it yet when the shoe is on the other foot the left will try to subvert the democratic process and the will of the people at the drop of hat. The left did not respect either election in WI, the state senators actually ran away to IL because they could not get their way in the WI state legisltaure. Does everyone remember that? Can you imagine if the Republicans in Congress had fled to Canada to stop Obamacare from being passed.

    Each new day in America brings forth more and more evidence of just what despicable, facsist, hypocritical, vile, bottom feeding, scum sucking pigs the leftists in this country are.
