  •  It may not have to be a Federal (7+ / 0-)

    Investigation/Prosecution since Wisconsin Laws are actually tougher that the Federal Statutes involved.
      And there are a number of investigative authorities who can, and likely will be involved.

      And think about this too: If Walker manages to avoid prosecution, he will still have to most likely face the voters again in ayear's time. Getting the necessary nimber of signatures for a recall election will not be too difficult a task in Wisconsin.

       And evidence that does not end up in a Court of Law will most certainly end up in the Court of Public Opinion!

    •  yup - I dunno about federal law violation and (4+ / 0-)

      jail or anything like that..

      but he is cooked at the state level..

      it is just a matter of time.

      he has no defense , and charges will be brought, and to an independent review board I might add..

      but the publicity once charges are filed should be enough..the newspapers will jump on it then, and if they are still in this state of paralysis when that happens we will see some movement..probably on the part of the repug senators, but it will be too late for Walker..it already is.

        anything worse happens, like massive "at Risk" of layoff notices going out.

           At this point, he could still claim victory for the financial aspects of the bill going forward, and he can claim to be ending his "principled stand" in an effort to move forward on restructuring the State's debt before the upcoming deadline.

          Sadly, for Governor Wanker, he's not very smart, and he'll almost certainly continue acting like a damn fool!
