  •  This has been going on for about (13+ / 0-)

    a year and a half and it's expanded from its original investigation as more and more is uncovered.  They're not in any hurry and so far, except for information on executed search warrants and the 3 rounds of charges, they have kept a very tight lid on the investigation.

    I just wish that our media had covered the fact that a John Doe Probe was being done before the election, but, no, the media Walker water carriers didn't want to report on anything negative about Walker as they had failed to do for years.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

    •  Could any of this rebound on (7+ / 0-)

      the media that let it all slide?  If a reporter or editor knew for certain that there were crimes, would they have any liability, say aiding and abetting, or something-or-other after the fact?

    •  Yep I know I'm deeply entrenched in RW media (7+ / 0-)

      land when I'm at home in NE WI: they run Fox on TeeVees at WalMart and even in a few of the local pharmacies.  There are a number of restaurants with the big screens that choose Fox as their go-to "news" channel.  [hurl]

      Ooh I get mad just thinking about it.

      But it's heartening to know that at least the investigation itself is a closely-held and tightly lidded affair.  I hope even hard hats and hip-waders won't keep Walker and Team Corrupt from the pile of crap that'll hit 'em sometime down the road.
