  •  I vaguely remember that there were rumours (7+ / 0-)

    at the time (last year) that the "Feds" were investigating wrong doings at the governor's level so this doesn't come as a complete surprise.

    What is surprising is that  it has been officially confirmed (the investigation) and the timing of the release of information (coincidence with his book publication?).  And I am wondering....does he still have his defense fund in place?  Or will he have to start a new one?  

    Hopefully this investigation will have some meat to it and produce juicy results.  Can't wait to see how this cooks up.

    •  The federal one was looking at some (10+ / 0-)

      Milwaukee County property deals, but it was locked up tighter than the Milwaukee County John Doe.  I haven't seen a single thing about it other than the fact that it existed.

      As to his Criminal Defense Fund - it's empty.  He had to transfer money from his campaign to cover the remaining debts for legal services.  It will be interesting to see if he starts funding it (I suspect that might be done secretly because there are specific rules about having one).

      I, too, can't wait to see what comes of this.  I was so shocked and disgusted to see the other one close - particularly after Bruce Landsgraf seemed to have so much more wrongdoing to pursue.

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