Scott Walker, worst governor, moving Wisconsin backwards
Uh oh.  Looks like he'll have more 'splainin' to do.
While the John Doe II investigation into whether there was illegal coordination between campaigns (including Scott Walkers) and dark money groups remains shut down pending appeal, a judge on the federal panel has ordered the release of 14 more pages of documents.
Judge Diane Wood of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ordered the court clerk to make available to the public two attachments to a motion that the Wisconsin Club for Growth had wanted to seal.

Her order did not say when the records would be available or make clear what they contain. They appear to total 14 pages, according to online court records.

The order is the latest in a series of decisions that has caused immense secrecy around the probe to fall away.

Last month 250 pages of documents in the case were unsealed and made available to the public, including the bombshell revelation that prosecutors in the case alleged Wisconsin Governor Scott (it's never my fault) Walker was at the center of a "criminal scheme" to circumvent state and federal laws.
The three-judge panel hearing the appeal has ordered briefs to be filed in the case through Oct. 2, meaning the case will likely remain an issue throughout Walker's re-election campaign. In November, he is expected to face Democrat Mary Burke, a former state commerce secretary and former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive.
I can't wait to see what's inside of these.

Stay tuned and stock up on popcorn.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
