Here’s a thinly-sourced update on the secret John Doe Investigation into
Friends of Scott Walker,
Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce Inc.,
Wisconsin Club for Growth,
Citizens for a Strong America

(Thin and from a source with a conservative ax to grind)

An opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal says that “Judge Gregory A. Peterson ruled on Friday that at least some of those subpoenas were improper”.

According to this article,
They “do not show probable cause that the moving parties committed any violations of the campaign finance laws,” he wrote.

His opinion remains under seal but we obtained a copy.”

But you, the reader, don’t get a copy of that judge’s opinion.

If you can get past the paywall at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, you can read “Secret ruling deals major setback to John Doe probe into recall elections”.

The most substantial info. we get from the M.J.Sentinel article — and the thing that tells you that there definitely is something juicy in this investigation — is THIS:
Those targeted by this probe brought in heavyweight lawyers from around the country, including Michael Bresnick, a Washington, D.C., attorney who worked alongside U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on the federal government’s $13 billion settlement with JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Much more info. on the groups involved including their shady money conduits and exploits in faux journalism can be found at Why Are the Franklin Center’s “Wisconsin Reporter” and “Watchdog.org” Attacking the John Doe?

  1. I’ll wait till there’s a legitimate source on this story. And by legitimate source, I mean “one who’s not been fed all their info from right-wing operatives.”

    Sorry Dan Bice and sorry Wall Street Journal, that disqualifies both of you. Besides, they don’t need a subpoena to nail people on illegal coordination and money-funneling charges.
