    It is a BS case brought by crybaby losers. Nothing more. This just makes the Dems and prosecution look like morons when they nit-pick over this crap. Get over it, YOU LOST TWICE.

    I'm from WI and could care less if Conservative groups helped Walker's recall election. Seems as though it was fair. Sounds like a very thin line. I don't mind Walker, but I'm guessing the unions are still pissed and funding this moronic cause.

    All potential 2016 Republican who may run against Hillary must be added to some legal issue - real or not.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    A one sentence post is hardly a rant. No need to go into your own rant just because I struck on what you know is the likely truth of it.

    Walker handed the Dems. one of their biggest defeats and they will do anything to attack him.
    He broke the law--where are the "select committees"?
    My guess is that this will end up in the same trash heap as the other false allegations against Walker.
    In the Midwest, we send our crooked governors to jail, as in Illinois with the last two--one DEM and one GOP >

    Very Real--since he clearly broke the law--as dana pointed out--no liberal.
    And as he pointed out how Walker may wiggle out--by getting the law ruled unconstitutional .

    Nice that you quoted only the first sentence, in order to try and convince others that this was just a rant. I think my response was quite well thought out, and actually in Walker's favor. So I am going to post what you cut off from my last post again, Mr. O'Keefe:

    There is smoking gun paperwork which catches Walker dead to rights. However, there are 2 ways that Walker can beat this, because, as you should well know, not every law is a good law. In fact, the laws that Walker broke were passed during Democratic administrations in Wisconsin. Were they afraid that big money could beat them, and so passed these laws? Here are the 2 ways Walker can beat the charges:

    1) First Amendment - This is what Walker's legal team is pushing now, and in light of the Citizens' United decision, it could very well work, by declaring Wisconsin's law against outside money and coordination unconstitutional.

    2) There is yet another way Walker can beat this, which involves the 14th Amendment. What Walker did is perfectly legal in several states, which brings up the idea of "equal protection". In Federal court, Walker's legal team can argue that he has been denied equal protection, since what he did, although illegal in Wisconsin, is legal elsewhere.

    This is not a witch hunt. The prosecutors are doing their job, and they have proof that Walker did what they are saying he did. However, is the law they are going after Walker on Constitutional? This is where the fight is, and this is where Walker could come out on top. Actually, I would say that the odds are in Walker's favor.

    The equal protection defense is a no-go. It won't work because states have always had laws that differ from state to state. They don't infringe on equal protection because they apply to everyone's actions in that state. It doesn't matter who you are, or what state you reside in; If you engage in the prohibited behavior in that state, you have broken the law.

    Hmmm, sounds familiar, ever since 2008.

    they don't circumvent laws here, they re-legislate their way around them.
