Yahoo/AP ^ | 6-19-14 | SCOTT BAUER

Posted on 06/19/2014 2:46:38 PM PDT by kingattax

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, took part in a nationwide criminal scheme to coordinate fundraising with conservative groups, prosecutors said in court documents unsealed Thursday.

No charges have been filed against Walker or any member of his staff. The documents were filed in December as part of an investigation into alleged illegal fundraising and campaign coordination by Walker and his campaign, the Wisconsin Club for Growth, the state Chamber of Commerce and other groups.

He was found innocent...hence the charges are about as relevant as words spoken by that slimy POS Obamadork.

Sorry, YAHOO, but we already know you are no longer a player.

A criminal scheme in which charges are not filed against one of the alleged participants. How does that work? Is there a prosecutor left in the country who isn’t just another political operative? Time to arm-up...

Give them time. in a few months we will achieve non person status. Then enemy of the state. Then a final solution can be applied as Bill Ayres, official Obama Advisor, said was needed.

They just need a little time.

Smear by headline. That’s the goal. As others pointed out, the case was resolved with no finding of wrong-doing.

No charges filed against the New Black Panthers over voter intimidation (and no arrests regarding their probable carrying of concealed weapons etc); not a peep out of the criminal thug in the White House or the criminal thug in the DoJ regarding the multiple voting by Holder’s people; no action or investigation on the ad hoc ballot box stuffing on behalf of the ridiculous imbecile Al Franken...

Thanks kingattax.

You didn’t get the memo? Voting rights only apply to minorities or those who have faced discrimination. Whites aren’t protected by such laws and the DOJ didn’t feel comfortable using a law against a group it was supposed to protect. That’s a matter of fact thanks to an OIG investigation. Alot of good that did.

“criminal scheme”

This is right out of a circa 1922 Soviet playbook. Unbelievable to be watching it happen again before my eyes. But I do have faith that the information age combined with the 2nd amendment will check this attack in time.

OH I’d say there’s some coordination around this non-story going on alright...

That is part of the rat mud slinging operation that they have been using for quite awhile. They own the press, everyone knows that. But it doesn't slow them down because it still works to some degree.

They took out Herman Cain with coordinated lies because he was a threat to Obama, He could speak the plain truth to America. He had too much power and had to be removed. Out came the broads and you know the rest. Same thing going on here.

Gov Walker is a powerhouse. Do what ever it takes, and they will try anything.

This aspect of the story isn’t being reported on various websites. This is a case of a GOP star being slimed with news of charges that aren’t real, but are being spread anyway in an attempt to destroy him before he can become a danger to the Rats.

so fundraising with conservative groups is a criminal scheme????

This prosecutor’s cashing of his paycheck every week is the criminal scheme.

I saw another article about this, and apparently the CONSERVATIVE group involved in the case agreed to making the info public, believing that getting the facts out in the open would be beneficial to Walker. But the media are spinning it the other way.

Everybody go to the link and read the last five paragraphs. This story is a blatant fabrication of what the CURRENT state of this case is. The story makes it sound like something new, but the courts have already ruled in favor of Walker, twice.

So I can:

Cross the border illegally.
Destroy IRS documents.
Threaten people at the polls.
Funnel money to campaign donors.

But I can’t organize a movement against any of this?

Governor Walker’s response: “The accusation of any wrongdoing written in the complaint by the office of a partisan Democrat District Attorney by me or by my campaign is categorically false. In fact two judges, in both state and federal courts, have ruled that no laws were broken.

This is nothing more than a partisan investigation with no basis in state law. It’s time for the prosecutors to acknowledge both judge’s orders to end this investigation.”

Not a one. The Democrats and RINOs got what they wanted....him out of the race. It was the biggest case of injustice since Tom Delay.

"Dems belong to a criminal institution."

Exactly.

They have infiltrated every branch of the government and use the power of government to attack their opponents..ie, Lois Lerner and the IRS...Eric Holder and the Dept of Justice, etc.

It may be time for another revolution, eh?
