  •  WI-Gov: More info on statewide John Doe probe (0+ / 0-)
    Three unnamed people have filed five requests with the state Court of Appeals to stay a secret investigation of campaign fund raising and spending during Wisconsin's recent recall elections.

    Madison attorney Dean Strang and Milwaukee attorney Matthew O'Neill filed the motions on Thursday, according to online court records. The filings name special prosecutor Francis Schmitz and initially named retired Kenosha County Circuit Judge Barbara Kluka, who was originally in charge of the investigation. The filings were amended Monday to reflect the investigation is now being overseen by retired Appeals Court Judge Gregory Peterson.

    This appears to be an attempt by three unnamed people to shut down the statewide investigation into Walker's campaign and other Republican/conservative organizations. Additionally, this is the first article about the "John Doe II" probe in Wisconsin that I've seen which names all five Wisconsin counties where the probe is taking place: Milwaukee, Dane, Dodge, Columbia, and Iowa.


    My parents made me a Democrat. Scott Walker made me a progressive.
