    Whom do you suppose is funding this effort to pollute Walker's re-election? Cui bono?

    That unlimited money may not be coordinated with the campaign.

    Not sure if that applies here.

    A law isn't unconstitutional until the Supreme Court rules it so. It's possible that if Walker is convicted, he will be able to appeal his conviction on those grounds. Citizens, not even Governors or Presidents, get to determine the legality of laws. As for equal protection under the law, how do you explain the example I gave of Colorado pot laws?

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

    Criminality has been swirling around the governor for a long time now, no presidency for him. More likely a jail cell.

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

    Madison Prosecutors allege Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican state senators fend off recall elections during 2011 and '12, according to documents unsealed Thursday.

    In the documents, prosecutors lay out what they call an extensive "criminal scheme" to bypass state election laws by Walker, his campaign and two top Republican political operatives R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl.

    The governor and his close confidants helped raise money and control spending through 12 conservative groups during the recall elections, according to the prosecutors' filings.


    The documents include an excerpt from an email in which Walker tells Karl Rove, former top adviser to President George W. Bush, that Johnson would lead the coordination campaign. Johnson is also Walker's longtime campaign strategist and the chief adviser to Wisconsin Club for Growth, a conservative group active in the recall elections.

    If he broke the law? Lock him up. If Karl Rove broke the law, lock him up, too.

    And, Pete, if any Democrats have done the same thing, which they probably have, they should be locked up also.

    Truth is, anyone that breaks the law should pay the price, even if it's the President of the United States...

    liberal prosecutors at the bequest of public employee unions that haven't had their way with Walker have been out to get him since day one....he'll likely have all the charges dismissed (like before) and no one will notice but the stench will remain thanks to the unions big buddy....the MSM (of course media matters) who likely brought you this message with joy and glee.

    got Walker e-mails?
    got collusion?
    These are prosecutors.
    Wisconsin is now AAA in corruption compared to my Illinois being the Majors.
    7th circuit unsealed documents today--more are still sealed--five lawsuits including Club for Growth

    You are wrong, Media Matters is not a news gathering operation.
