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?
