Skip to comments.Prosecutors: Gov. Walker Part of Criminal Scheme
Posted on 06/19/2014 11:16:02 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Newly released documents show prosecutors believe Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of a nationwide "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate fundraising with outside conservative groups.
No charges have been filed against Walker or any member of his staff.
Prosecutors say Walker, his chief of staff and others who worked for him were discussing illegal coordination with a number of national groups and prominent figures, including GOP strategist Karl Rove.

Probably an orchestrated smear campaign by the left
The left will always let you know who they consider a threat.
This is one of the ways they do it.
Make them PROVE it, Governor.
Even if nothing comes of it, they’ll push the headlines as long as they can, make sure it is covered on all of the Sunday political talk shows, etc., etc. And the press is “all in” on the strategy.
This hit piece ends up with reporting the information was obtained by the group suing on behalf of Walker. It was a supposition by the “prosecutors”.
The Left is trying to take down all prospective Republican candidates early. First Christie, now Walker. Let’s see who is next.
hope he’s keeping the bridges open
I hope this is not true, he is my favorite for 2016. Wouldn’t mind seeing Karl Rove taken down though.
This is a hit piece and it's because they're pissed they couldn't find anything.
Yeah... they could believe the moon is made of green cheese if they wanted, but the court said nyet.
Since when do prosecutors speculate in the msm about possible charges without like - uh - actually filing charges?
Not this again.
They won’t take down Karl Rove, He’s one of their best “tools”
Now they MIGHT be playing games by purposing to release scandal to the public that they didn’t (or didn’t dare) place before the judge.
So far, it looks to me like Walker is a (old fashioned, pre-gay) Boy Scout.
But when you are getting the most flak, that probably means you are directly above the target.
Sounds like the left are scared he might run for President or something.
No question about it. Karl Rove is a tool...
The Left has never gotten over the fact Walker kicked their asses in that recall campaign.
Therefore, any tactic to get rid of him is justified, even blatant smearing.
And of course the slavish Big Leftist Media has their orders to follow.
Trying to do a Tom Delay on another effective conservative.
So,what exactly is illegal about coordinating with “national” groups for political and financial support on intra-state campaigns? Is this in relation to the Democrat/Trade Union recalls?
This whispering prosecutor isn’t a Democrat is he-she?
Accusations before election and after the election is over and and lost ,then charges dropped.
How many times are republicans going to allow this to happen?
It is so obvious by now.
Every speech by a rep should start with addressing this crime by libs.
The libPOSthings tried this on Sarah, and (supposedly dumber than dirt) Sarah cleaned their miserable clock every time.
Scott will also.
FU until the sun dies...and far, far beyond.
CW-II will be your demise.
What liberal groups is the prosecutor coordinating with?
DrThorne a few seconds ago
"In other words, some disgruntled Democrat prosecutors went on a fishing expedition against Scott Walker, put what they had before a judge who threw it out of court... and the AP and ABCNEWS thinks this is a news story! It should only serve to inform Americans what a bunch of seethingly hate-filled criminals Democrats really are. They couldn't defeat Walker at the ballot box, so they desperately tried to use the judicial system. That was an utter failure. So, now they've released the story to their reliable lapdogs in the media, hoping they can ruin Walker in the court of public opinion. The Democrat Party and the progressives that infect the media are enemies of truth and the most laughable freakshow on the planet. They deserve nothing but scorn and contempt."
It’s what they do.
Has he destroyed his emails or hard drives yet?
"These documents show how the John Doe prosecutors adopted a blatantly unconstitutional interpretation of Wisconsin law that they used to launch a secret criminal investigation targeting conservatives throughout Wisconsin," Grossman said in an email Thursday. "Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and this is a story that needs to be told to prevent more abuses and to hold the John Doe prosecutors accountable for violating the rights of Wisconsinites."
But but but, it is the seriousness of the charges.
Imagine how differently the headlines would read if this had involved Republican prosecutors making legally baseless allegations about a Democrat governor in order to investigate liberal groups.
Sounds like they are ascared of Walker as a Presidential candidate.
Gee, that’s strange. They didn’t seem to mind when klintoon took money from the chicoms.
If no charges have been filed then how can be he a part of a “criminal scheme”?
They are TERRIFIED of this guy running for President.
Yes, they knocked out our best guy Cristie first, now going for Walker ....LOLO
See my post at #4
Legal Insurrection is all over this. They have had good coverage of the whole John Doe investigation.
Pointing out their hypocrisy merely amuses them.
Meanwhile, Obama’s IR SS gets away with the most transparent evidence tampering since Eve hid the apple, and our vigilant media watchdogs yawn in their martinis.
In an online dispatch, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel today reports how Milwaukee County DA John Chisholm and two of his assistants, who are working on the current John Doe probe of potential campaign-finance violations, have obtained private attorneys to defend themselves in a “civil rights “ lawsuit filed by the Wisconsin Club for Growth and one of its directors. State government will cover the private defense attorney fees for Schmitz, Chisholm and the two Chisholm staffers.
The best defense I’ve seen for situations like this is the truth and exposing the liars for what they are. I know of several elections that were lost because they attempted to smear the other party and the people saw it for what it was. Backfired big-time.
One of the blindsides of liberals and politicians is that they always assume they are smarter than you are. If you ask me that gives us an advantage right off the bat...
> They are TERRIFIED of this guy running for President.
Which should scare them because all of the DemoRat candidates have proved themselves unfit and untrustworthy of that office. The DemoRats simply cannot deny the truth of their Emporer’s destruction now while it is not only hitting them in their pockets, it’s body slamming them and throwing them down onto the ground hard, hell more like into a tiger pit complete with spikes at this point....
The Dems co-ordinate with government agencies!...Like the IRS.
Guess the IRS emails related to this case survived the great purge
FYI — I broke down and went to the link. The headline is completely misleading (surprise). The story reveals that a conservative group finally got the papers after petitioning for release of the bogus “evidence” from a failed partisan assault on Walker. The case itself had no merit and was dismissed two years ago. So ABC spins this as if Walker were being prosecuted now. Total BS! The shocking thing is that the hard drive hadn’t been “recycled”.
It’ll fall flat.
He’ll fight back. He’s not a pushover.
Bingo. And the media plays along.
