30 subpoenas issued, search warrants, investigating Gov Scott Walker's recall Campaign

Ruh roh. Gov. Scott Walker is surrounded.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Walker’s campaign, the Republican Party of Wisconsin and dozens of conservative political groups are the targets of the Milwaukee County probe. Dozens of subpoenas have been issued demanding documents related to the 2011 and 2012 campaign to recall Walker and state legislative leaders. In all, about 30 groups have been subpoenaed.

The report details those targeted: Copies of two subpoenas we’ve seen demand “all memoranda, email . . . correspondence, and communications” both internally and between the subpoena target and some 29 conservative groups, including Wisconsin and national nonprofits, political vendors and party committees. The groups include the League of American Voters, Wisconsin Family Action, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Americans for Prosperity—Wisconsin, American Crossroads, the Republican Governors Association, Friends of Scott Walker and the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

According to the newspaper, one subpoena also demands “all records of income received, including fundraising information and the identity of persons contributing to the corporation.”

Follow the money.

Madison.com reports:

 According to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, spending in the 2011 and 2012 recall elections by groups mentioned in the article include:

• Right Direction Wisconsin PAC (Republican Governors Association): $9.4 million

• Club for Growth Wisconsin: $9.1 million

• Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce: $4.7 million
Americans for Prosperity/MacIver Institute for Public Policy: $4.5 million
The liberal Center for Media and Democracy has tracked millions of dollars that has flowed among these groups in Wisconsin.

In an interview Saturday, the group’s general counsel, Brendan Fischer, described it as a “dark money shell game” in which thousands and in some cases millions of dollars from anonymous donors are moved from one organization to another with the goal of influencing elections.

JS Online reports:

Unmentioned in the editorial is that R.J. Johnson is an adviser to both Walker’s campaign and the Wisconsin Club for Growth.

The newspaper said the subpoenas sought records and fundraising information and were related to the 2011 and 2012 recall efforts against the Republican governor and state senators.

The subpoenas come out of a second, secret John Doe investigation of Walker aides or allies. The first investigation was closed in February, but the second one is ongoing. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported on both investigations.

John Doe probes give prosecutors the power to compel people to testify and bar them from speaking about their involvement in the investigations. The Wall Street Journal editorial page reported O’Keefe was willing to discuss his subpoena, saying he “realizes the personal risk but wants the public to know what is going on.”

Search warrants were executed based on affidavits filed by Dean Nickel, according to the newspaper. Nickel served as the special agent in charge for the state Department of Justice’s public integrity unit, and the newspaper reported he has served as an investigator for the state Government Accountability Board.

Just this morning Walker was opining that a governor would be the best choice for a presidential run in 2016.

I know Scott! Maybe you can have all the investigators arrested just as you did protesters, a kid and even a few grannies.

      I am beginning to wonder if there are any republicans that are not corrupt. It seems as though the system is now set up to encourage and reward corruption, at least until you get caught.

      • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

        Who knew that would happen when they allowed Corporations to be people, my friend? I mean except for everyone.

      • juicyfruityyy

        It seems like, everyone that they choose to run for an election, have bad skeletons in their closet. They want a “yes person” not an “ethical person”.

      • Cosmic_Surfer

        Since all the moderates left the GOP, all that are left are the sociopaths

  • mrsgunka

    I hope this is just the tip of the iceberg for investigations into many Rep Governors races. Their House and Senate races too! We have some recalls for any Dems that voted against stronger gun laws going on. Think they are checking out the last one they filed after we lost two Dems in the State Senate.

    • Hank

      Hmmm…does my memory serve me correctly? Are the only successful recall efforts those involving Democrats??

      • Hank

        Down votes instead of answers. The way of the Left. :-)

      • Gabby Parsons

        And isn’t that an interesting statistic for a state that re-elected Obama and sent Tammy Baldwin to the Senate.

  • juicyfruityyy

    Walker should have never become Governor. I look forward to seeing him in pink hand-cuffs. The Coke Brothers, also, needs to be brought to trial.

  • Linda1961

    You mean he cheated?!? Shocking!

  • Rocco Rizzo

    Throw the bass turd in jail, and throw away the key!

  • Cosmic_Surfer

    As soon as Karl Rove showed up, they should have been investigating. Karl Rove is the King RatFucker – that’s his job and he has done it well – getting a governor sent to prison on bullshit (http://www.bradblog.com/?p=10286), manipulated/rigged voting (Ohio 2012), and helped get Bush 2 into office using a SCOTUS coup de’etat. He was, after all, Donald Segretti’s bouncing baby protege.

  • gailillly

    So when is he going to jail??? Seems like the pukes can do just about anything and get away with it including Murdering our own troops, GW bush did and so did Dick Cheney and they are still free. They should be prosecuted and put in jail for the rest of their dam lives for all they did wrong.

  • Irmgard Alderman

    I cannot for the life of me believe that sociopath could get elected to dog catcher, let alone governor, in a state like Wisconsin. That’s like giving Jeffrey Dahmer a job as a social worker.

    • Hank

      As y’all are so fond of saying about the President, “Twice!!” ;-)

      • Linda1961

        No, Walker hasn’t been elected twice – he was elected once, by lying, and then survived a recall election by cheating.

      • Gabby Parsons

        Do you think Walker would have won the first time if he campaigned on his actual agenda?

      • Irmgard Alderman

        Don’t go comparing scum like Walker to President Obama.

  • wifeofdds

    We need to get our state back. The years they have been in key positions, they have done nothing but destroy our democracy. On top of that, they are ignorant, totally rude and have no respect for the voters, workers, students or other legislators in our state. Walker is a paid whore of the Koch brothers and anything he touches is crooked.

  • Hank

    The Left keeps throwing doodie against the wall praying some of it will stick!!

    I guess that’s what happens when you wee-wee in the Union’s ?Wheaties. Either that, or you wind up dead.

    • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

      Or unless you’re surrounded by corruption, which in this case, looks more likely that your allegation.

      • Hank

        Well….let’s see. He won the election. He then won the RECALL election. The first investigation turned up nothing. Maybe this one will be the golden one for the left.

        I hope something breaks for y’all. You’re beginning to look like Republicans trying to repeal the ACA!! ;-)

        • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

          Good try my friend. The John Doe investigation began just as Walker got into office. Since then, Darlene Wink and others have been found teeming with corruption. Did you really think Wisconsin, with its strict ethics laws would look the other way?

          • Hank

            I just think the Left is beginning to look a little pathetic and desperate.

            If I “recall” correctly, when the recall effort was going on, you guys had him all but gone months before the votes were totaled. As I recall, y’all felt the election was simply a formality!!

            I guess one of the things that amazes me is this country has gotten in such a shape, no matter which side you want to hold responsible, that tough and possibly unpopular measures need to be taken. You’ve got cities across the U.S. either bankrupt or on the verge of Bankruptcy due to oppressive Union demands.

            But someone steps up to the plate and actually tries to do something about it, and y’all want to crucify him!! It just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.

            People give all this lip service to the notion that politicians are supposed to represent the will of the people and perform in the best interest of the people. But all you really want is someone that will perform according to what YOU think is best for everyone…whether the aggrieved like it or not. i.e. The ACA!!

          • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

            In a word, no. He lied his butt of to get into office. He’s been caught on numerous occasions on video. He campaigned against his opponent saying he wasn’t fit for office because one (yes one) aide was found to be corrupted. Walker is surrounded by corruption. That is not doing a good thing for this country no matter how you want to spin it. I never defended Rangel. I can’t stand politicians who cheat to win or pander to big money through dubious actions.

          • Hank

            But yet, he has neither been charged nor found guilty of anything. I guess you guys just aren’t trying hard enough. After all, if it’s so plainly evident for all of youse guys to see, surely a couple more investigations will find something THAT obvious! ;-)

          • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

            The John Doe investigations are private and it’s been ongoing. Obviously they found something or the subpoenas would not be executed. If he’s corrupted, I would think you’d be glad to get rid of him in the end.

          • Hank

            Well…unless I have misread, I think the first investigation was closed with no finding of wrongdoing. And let’s face it, if we dig long enough and deep enough, we might even find a law, rule or regulation that even YOU may have broken!! :-)

            I just find the left very petty and vindictive. (Remember, I have very personal experience.) And I’m not sure how you find actions like this any different than trying to repeal the ACA “eleventy hundred” (did I spell that correctly?) times!

          • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

            This isn’t the left. This is an independent investigation. And yes, I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life, no doubt. But, I am not an elected official:-)

          • Hank

            I’d vote for you!! And then just cry until you got out of office!! ;-)

          • http://FreakoutNation.com/ Anomaly 100

            Can you even imagine the kind of mind it takes to want an elected office? I think they’re all nuts.

          • kathymc7719

            It’s only a matter of time Hank. It took IL 5 years to get the goods on Blago but he finally got his bed in the gray bar hotel like 3 other govs down there. Move over and make room for WI former Gov Walker.

          • Hank

            No doubt y’all will keep trying. You guys are such sore losers.

          • disqus_KBKmM9j1y3

            Hank , if you think Union demands is what bankrupted cities you are deluded. Stop watching FOX and do some real research.

          • tiredoftea

            That union destroys corporations nonsense has been thoroughly debunked many times over. Walker and the right, in general, don’t like unions because of their support for Dems because they vote and get out the vote against republicans.

          • Hank

            My experience has been different. In my opinion, unions are as much terrorist organizations as anything.

          • tiredoftea

            Right. Because fair labor practices are such a bad thing!

          • Hank

            Nothing whatsoever at all “fair” about what the Unions do.

          • tiredoftea

            Please explain that comment.

          • Hank

            For beginners, they hold business and consumers hostage to their unreasonable demands. And if you resist them, they are just as likely to assault or kill you as not. Is that enough explaining?

          • tiredoftea

            Well, enough to show a very high degree of fantasy and paranoia on your part. But, otherwise, no.

          • Hank

            “According to a study in 1969, the United States has had the bloodiest and most violent labor history of any industrial nation in the world, and there have been few industries which have been immune.”

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_violence

            I know…..Wikipedia because…….. But there is sourcing within the article. If you take the typical Liberal Tactic of demeaning Wikipedia….when the results don’t favor your positions….please feel free to follow some of the sourcing. :-)

            In my area, I have observed businesses to literally be forced to close up shops by Union demands. These were business that for years, almost every time you drove by them, there would be picketers outside striking for something.

            There was this one rather large concern that after virtually continuous work stoppages for years by the Union, that they sat down with Union Officials begging them to negotiate, not to strike. That they would not be able to survive if they did. The Union went on strike. The business immediately closed doors. And then you got all the whining and crying to the media by these thugs about poor us!! Whatever will we do now??

            When you threaten to or actually DO close down a business if they do not acquiesce to your demands, that just isn’t fair negotiating. At least not in my opinion.

          • kathymc7719

            Hank – please cite your source for unions killing or assaulting. What a pyscho tool. No wonder you’re a Walker fanatic.

          • Hank

            Already done. Read the posts.

          • Cosmic_Surfer
          • Hank

            There was a time when the unions performed a real and needed service. That time is gone and hopefully, the unions will disappear with it.

          • Patsy Charles Pirillo

            except 60 percent of the voters in the recall said the reason they didn’t vote him out was because they didn’t believe there should be a recall

          • fantagor

            I don’t believe in recall elections, but I think the people of Wisconsin would have been better served to vote out Walker, Wisconsin Lawbreaker, and THEN repeal the recall law.

          • Hank

            So….you don’t believe in it. But it’s okay to use it to your advantage then ban it so the same tactics can’t be used against you??

          • wifeofdds

            Isn’t the recall the same thing you right wings did to the State Senators at the same time? And now the repugs in Madison are passing laws to do away with re-call elections plus disavow voters from voting? Who ever heard of people having to sign saying they are poor and can’t afford a state ID? Who does that unless they are afraid of being voted out of office?

          • Hank

            Which State Senators are you talking about?

          • wifeofdds
          • Hank

            Well there you go. That means 60% didn’t agree with the Left Extremists crying because they didn’t get their way!!

          • Cosmic_Surfer

            Yea, all those “left extremists” that were not left extremists. Words have meaning, Hank.

          • Hank

            Yes they do. Which is why I used precisely the words I felt were accurate.

          • Patsy Charles Pirillo

            the aca is the best thing to happen for the American people

          • wifeofdds

            Hank, since Walker and co. have tried so hard to destroy Unions as have the Kochs and other greedy corporate owners and CEOs..how many jobs has Walker created in our state? How many have other “right to work” states created? How many of those states are on the US government dole? Think about it.

          • Hank

            Well…honestly I don’t know. And based on your first statement,I have no desire to research it at your behest.

          • wifeofdds

            I already know those answers…I was asking so that you might actually use your brain and think for a change.

          • Hank

            I really couldn’t care less about Wisconsin. Good luck.

        • wifeofdds

          Hank, he didn’t win anything. He was bought by the Koch brothers the first time and the re-call was stolen by the Koch brothers and Rove and other out of state thugs. Get your facts straight before you add your input please.

          • Hank

            Well if that’s the case, seems they did a very good job of it!! ;-)

        • Steve Miceli

          The first investigation turned into several criminal convictions. Just not the one pulling the strings.

        • http://Yahoo.com/ Irm Alderman

          He won the recall because Wisconsin voters want order not mayhem, so many did not even vote on the recall.

    • drdarke

      Sorry, “Hank” – your Right Wing TREASON is not welcome here.

      Go troll elsewhere – before we dump a house on YOU, too!

      • Hank

        I’d say you should stick to evaluating T.V. shows.

        • drdarke

          At least I do a BETTER job at it than YOU do at politics, “Hank”.

          Piss off – forever. Your time has gone – and you should be, too.

          • Hank

            Actually, I think you do a better job at “Troll Behavior” than I do. Keep posting and I’ll take notes. Maybe when I grow up I’ll be as good at is as you are.

      • tiredoftea

        Settle down there, sport. There’s no reason to threaten violence about any of this!

        • drdarke

          I couldn’t disagree more on how the Right has called down the thunder, and it’s PAST time for the Left to GIVE it to ‘em, @tiredoftea!

          But – I got no argument w/you, and that’s just my take on how to deal with people who spent thirty years calling us on the Left “traitors” and “anti-Americans”, and what they’ve got coming to them….

  • Michelle

    And this guy is talking about running for president? That makes me shudder.

  • wifeofdds

    We have to get our state of WI back from these criminals. We worked our butts off to try to recall Walker and he and his crooks criminally took it away. We had the votes. We lost because of outside, fraudulent money, crooked town election counters. If something isn’t done soon, we will no longer be able to vote or have public schools or unions. This has to end.

    • Helen Wheels

      I have a few names of a group (and have had runins with them on FB) who call themselves the “Knots” or “Knotsies” who helped with intimidation and voter fraud to make sure the recall went in Walker’s favor. They are about the nastiest people you’d ever meet.

I know it’s a Republican but hey, we have donuts and if there is one thing we know about Republicans if you make them feel remotely special they will blindly lead you to slaughter.

    Did I mention donuts?

  • fantagor

    May I recommend Rod Blagojevich’s legal team. Kept him out of jail. I think.

    • John Sawyer

      Nope, he went to federal prison in March 2012. Still there, serving a 14-year term. So yes, I agree: Walker should hire Blago’s defense team!

      • fantagor

        That was my tongue and cheek point.

  • db1db2d

    I heard that conversation Walker had with the guy he thought was one of the Koch Bros. It was amazing. What a craven little shitheel he is. Some folks in Wis. Law Enforcement obviously think there are some massive “irregularities” that merit investigation. Kinda doubt that they are all Democrats on the Government Accountability Board. That “dark money shell game” quote would indicate that they already have some evidence and are looking for a “smoking gun”, which Walker probably shredded long ago. Hopefully one of his “pals” kept some evidence and will rat out Walker to protect themselves from doing hard time. Wouldn’t THAT be a nice little Christmas present…

  • infectious_d

    lovely simply lovely, guess this means he won’t be runnin’ for prez…or will it make him more qualified :D…he can run the country from behind bars, atleast in his mindspace where his brain lives

    Right!! Whether they want it of not!!

    • tmf354

      Exactly. Just like SS and Medicare are the best thing that happened to the American people that conservatives were against from the beginning and STILL trying to dismantle. You’re very typical of the low information voter, Hank, and by you’re excessive use of the term “ya’ll” proves it.

      • Hank

        Why y’all sure have a bad attitude!!

      • Cosmic_Surfer

        I would have up-voted your comment except for the last section.
        “Y’all” is a contraction of “you all” and is a commonly used term in the South, Midwest and rural areas of America – Mark Twain used it often and he was far from a “low information” voter. Professors, doctors, and extremely educated people use the term frequently.

  • sukibarnstorm

    But have they done anything illegal? What are the subpoenas looking for?

    • Stephen Bryce

      Those misleading robocalls probably are.

    • Kenny

      Scott Walker is puppet of David and Charles Koch. Bring this corrupt SOB down!

  • tiredoftea

    So, I love it when you ignore all the evidence against your position, in your own links! In the paragraph directly above the one in your post:

    “Anti-union violence has also occurred frequently in the context of industrial unrest, and has often involved the collusion of management and government authorities, private agencies, or citizens’ groups in organizing violence against unions and their members.”

    And, in each instance of violence noted, from the 1877 Railroad Strike to the 1922 Herrin Massacre, it was owners who incited the violence or forced it by their unreasonable actions against workers. The violence that occurred was
    not the first choice of anyone in the workers movement.

    I get that you strongly favor business and the powerful and that you need a convenient excuse for business failures that absolves them. But, unions and workers are rarely, if ever, the problem.

    If the approx. 10% of the employee base that is unionized in this country were that powerful, why wouldn’t they take over the ownership of those businesses by their brilliant and nefarious means and enjoy the profits rather than put themselves out of work? They are not “evil geniuses” but people who want fair wages, the dignity of employment, stability where possible and safe working conditions above all else. Oh, and decent, affordable health care.

    • Hank

      I didn’t ignore this:

      Examples of union violence since 1925 include:

      2012 – Union workers protesting right-to-work legislation in Lansing, Michigan destroyed a tent run by Americans for Prosperity. People were inside the tent but managed to escape before the collapse. Additionally, hot dog stand operator Clinton Tarver, a popular vendor around the Capital area who was hired to provide catering for AFP, lost his equipment, condiments, coolers, and food in the collapse. According to Tarver (an African American), union workers, who had incorrectly
      assumed he was supporting AFP, called Tarver an “Uncle Tom nigger”. A union worker also punched conservative comedian and Fox News contributor Stephen Crowder, resulting in a chipped tooth and a minor cut on the forehead. Another worker threatened to kill Crowder with a gun.

      2011 – It was reported on September 9, 2011 that members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) frightened security guards, dumped grain, and vandalized property belonging to EGT, LLC, over a labor dispute. No one was hurt, and no one had been arrested at the time the incident was reported. District Judge Ronald Leighton later issued a preliminary injunction against the ILWU citing their reported behavior.

      1997 – On August 7, 1997, teamsters Orestes Espinosa, Angel Mielgo, Werner Haechler, Benigno Rojas, and Adrian Paez beat, kicked, and stabbed a UPS
      worker (Rod Carter) who refused to strike, after Carter received a threatening phone call from the home of Anthony Cannestro, Sr., president of Teamsters Local

      1996 – On 19 August 1996, Australian unionists physically broke into the Australian Parliament & fought Australian Federal Police during the 1996 Parliament House Riot.

      1993 – Eddie York was murdered for crossing a United Mine Workers (UMW) picket line at a coal mine in Logan County, West Virginia, on July 22, 1993. Like the 1990 NY Daily News strike, criminal charges under the Hobbs Act were declined, with the FBI and Justice Department citing the Enmons case.

      1990 – on the first day of The New York Daily News strike, delivery trucks were attacked with stones and sticks, and in some cases burned, with the drivers beaten. Strikers then started threatening newsstands with arson, or stole all
      copies of the Daily News and burned them in front of the newsstands. James Hoge, publisher of the Daily News, alleged that there had been some 700 serious acts of violence. The New York Police Department claimed knowledge of 229 incidents of violence. Criminal charges under the Hobbs Act were declined, however, citing the
      aforementioned Enmons case.

      1986 – During protests by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
      Local 1547 against a non-unionized workforce getting a contract, picketers threatened and assaulted workers, spat at them, sabotaged equipment, and shot guns near workers. In 1999, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that the union had engaged in “ongoing acts of intimidation, violence, destruction of property”,
      awarding the plaintiff $212,500 in punitive damages.

      1984 – Taxi driver David Wilkie was killed by striking miners while driving a non-striking worker during the NUM UK mining strike of 1984-85.

      1926 – In the context of the 1926 United Kingdom general strike, striking miners derailed The Flying Scotsman on May 10.

      In the early days of Union formation, you may have a point. Currently, I don’t think you do. Kinda like the difference between Democrats and Republicans 50 years ago you guys are so wont to trumpet!! ;-)

      • tiredoftea

        Here’s the difference. In most, if not all of the citations above, deplorable as they are, they were unorganized and spontaneous on the part of workers and not union tactics. I am not defending any of the above and I’m certainly not defending the Teamsters, as they are a special kind of corrupt monster that has perverted the union movement. But, none of that takes place in a vacuum and is the culmination of labor tension and an inability to negotiate, on the part of both parties.

        There must be a balance between an owners desire to run a profitable business and the ability of workers to bargain, honestly and fairly, for their position in the company. Too often that is not the case and owners have a greater ability to tell their story to sympathetic politicians while funding their campaigns that result in unfair and unjust labor laws. The decline of workers ability to organize, strike, bargain and even work for a fair wage, is the result of that imbalance of power.

        The long decline of labor unions and the middle class is proof of that imbalance. I don’t have a solution to any of it, but I am certain that making working people the villain is not it.

          For the most part, I agree.

          “…making working people the villain is not it.”

          And I’m not. It’s the organizations I have issues with.

          • tiredoftea

            OK, how do we make organizations, of all kinds, pay attention to their constituents? And, by that I mean workers, voters, citizens, investors?

      • wifeofdds

        Yes Hank as to your 2012 example. It was shown and proven that FAUX tv lied and they also lied about what went on in Wisconsin, in Madison when Walker and co. was trying to do away with labor. Wisconsin does NOT have palm trees in Madison and people do not wear shorts during snow storms. FAUX lies and if you base your “facts” on things heard on that station or any blog or magazine or paper owned by those same owners..you are getting the same talking point lies. If you are smart enough to search for information…then search for facts.

        • Hank

          Oh another witty 6 year old with that “Faux” silliness.

      • kathymc7719

        Hank – you must not be aware that the 1st one you cited was discredited almost immediately. I suppose that you also believe that the protesters caused $7MM damage to the capitol too?

        • Hank

          Wrong again. So far you’re batting 1000. Good in baseball. Not so good in being wrong.

  • wifeofdds

    And where is your “area”?

    • Hank

      Nope. I try not to divulge ANY personal information. Some of you guys are just downright vindictive and untrustworthy.

      • kathymc7719

        “Some of you guys are just downright vindictive and untrustworthy.”

        Sound like projection Hank. Isn’t it time for your meds?

        • Hank

          Nope. Sounds like experience with some low life libs.

      • wifeofdds

        Hank, you are the only one here talking about “thugs”, bloody, violent labor etc. Maybe it is that you are the one practicing the art of projection. It seems to be a favorite with the right wing/teaparty people. And no…we use the word “faux” because that is what fox is…fake news. They went to court to be allowed to lie on tv…that is how fake their so called news is. You are part of the people that have been brainwashed to believe that unions are bad. That’s right..the Kochs and other greedy corporations want unions gone so they can pay less and keep more for themselves…ie..the Walmart family. People that treat their employees like slaves are immoral and people like the Kochs that don’t care about what they do to this planet just so they can be even richer and want slave labor and no benefits…that is immoral. And Walker and his co-horts in Madison are paid whores of the greedy pimps. If that is what you agree with..so be it. Soon you will be back on the wrong side of history.

        • Hank

          You’re critiquing me….but your post is filled with little more that immature plays on words and liberal talking points. “Faux News”, “Brainwashed”, “Kochs”, “Greedy Corporations”, “Slaves”, “Paid whores,,,,pimps”…..it just doesn’t get more “Talking Pointyish” than that.

          I’m just a person with my own opinion. The thing Liberals hate the most.

          • wifeofdds

            You, are a joke and care for no one but yourself.

          • Hank

            I would say I’m sorry you feel that way. But why waste the thought or effort.

  • TedVothJr

    Suki, is it a good thing that multi-Billionaires from out of state pour millions of dollars in to buy our elections? Shouldnt that be illegal? The investigation is to determine whether crime have been committed. If its likely they have, then charges will be brought. Unfortunately the same people who gave your governor money to buy your vote will give him money to buy super-slick defense lawyers to buy his way out of trial…

  • ChainUp

    We can only hope that this is the beginning of investigations into the right wing funding machine. The investigation should include focusing on conservative members of the Supreme Court.

    • Doretha Reeves

      From our mouths to God’s ears.

  • Steve Miceli

    I wonder how many of his lackeys will go down this time before the mafia like omerta is broken. Once the dam breaks he will be political dead. One must wonder if anyone will have an “accident” though on the way to spilling his or her guts to the feds..

  • Jerry Person

    if not for electronic voting machines walker would have lost by a 2 to 1 margin. Only a few nuts and mebers of the criminal justice system voted for walker. he created 32000 private sector jobs creating most f their jobs as Wisconsin assemblyman working for ALEC. It also cost Wisconsin 35 billion since enacted. It was called truth in sentencing. if you want big government and NO small business. support walker the walmart man

  • berriesandblood

    Will look good on the resume he trots out for his presidential bid…

  • Morgan Sheridan

    I hope he and his cronies are brought down low and their whole range of criminal activities gets fully exposed for all of Wisconsin and the rest of the nation.

    • SiaraDelyn

      Wouldn’t that be GREAT?

  • Angela Honadel Jeske

    The amazing thing is that the Republicans think this guy might be a credible candidate for President of the United States. That just goes to show that they know they have nothing. Oh, wait…that was obvious when Sarah Palin was chosen as John McCain’s running mate.

  • SiaraDelyn

    I wonder what will happen when they find out that this guy has been funded by the Koch brothers from the word “go”? Probably nothing. They think the Koch brothers might be the second coming because they are rich.
