Default Will Scott Walker Join Blago in Prison?

Prosecutors accuse Gov. Scott Walker of personally overseeing a sweeping "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate fundraising and campaign activity among conservative groups in a broad effort to help him -- as well as Republican senators -- fend off recalls targeting them in 2011 and 2012, court documents unsealed Thursday show.

In the documents, which were unsealed by a federal appeals court judge Thursday morning, prosecutors described what they called a "criminal scheme" to circumvent state campaign finance and election laws.

, yeah, I worry about Walker all day, every day, unlike you with Obama and democrats. If he did something wrong, he should pay like anyone else, including yes, your democrats, but you live in double standard world, so democrats should do whatever they want. But nice you need to worry about me, but getting your butt handed to you every day must make you butt hurt. Go change your diapers already.

No. Allegedly the governor of a state that holds little real concern for those of us who don't live there. Which makes it not-all-that-surprising that that's where you'd like everyone to focus. You know, instead of that cataclysmit f-up that is Washington DC that you tell us over and over again needs more control over how we do things.

A little light reading, if you're so eager for something more on (pointless) point.

Some more if you like.

However, missing from all these accounts was one small fact: Shortly after prosecutors made the “criminal scheme” charge, it was rejected by the presiding judge, Gregory Peterson. On Dec. 9, 2013, prosecutor Francis Schmitz filed a motion in opposition to quashing subpoenas in the case in which he made the “criminal scheme” allegation. On Jan. 10, 2014, Peterson threw out Schmitz’s motion, saying that it “failed to show probable cause that a crime had been committed.”

In fact, Peterson was only the first judge to rule against prosecutors. Last month, ruling on a lawsuit brought by the defendants, federal Judge Rudolph Randa shut down the entire investigation, issuing a sternly worded rebuke to prosecutors pursing Walker and his allies. So despite all the celebrating liberal groups were doing with the release of the documents on Thursday, few of them knew that the case is currently dead.
But, like I hinted at earlier, it's fun to watch the habitual criers of "witch hunt!" line themselves up so eagerly behind one of the pettiest witch hunts out there.

It's all about the (R).

It will be funny if/when we re-engage in Iraq how all these same idiots currently blaming the whole mess on Obama, and slamming his premature exit, will be ripping Obama for said re-engagement. Price is already doing it in the ongoing cluster**** Iraq thread.

I no longer have any idea what the Rights' position is on Iraq. It could be anything.

This is why Govenors make the best presidents; they already have real world experience with election rigging and corruption.

About 130 years ago a great american commented that the only problem with politicians is that there are too few of them hung. I think there is nothing new with the current crop of criminals. We just tolerate more of their crimes.

Why is this still being argued when all the judges (liberals as well) threw out all the charges? This is the prosecutors trying to be cute by bringing up BS to the public to try Walker in the court of public opinion since that's the best they can get.

I've already read from Democrat lawyers saying this is a shady move.

Because it's entertaining?

The guy is the one of the most extremist partisan ideologues out there. He deserves whatever he gets. Of course, the Tea Party will probably toss him in the next election for not being extreme enough.

In a party full of psychos, Walker makes the rest look reasonable. He has treated people like **** for years. It's called "What goes around comes around."

Apparently a couple judges have already seen the evidence and stated no case, but I guess liberals will keep going with this until they can find(buy) a judge who will see it differently. Is this costing tax dollars? I mean, the liberals are worried how much it costs trying to find out why 4 Americans were killed in Libya than the reason why it happened.

Anything to get the people's minds off Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi, Bergdahl, Obamacare, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, higher gas and food prices, unemployment, floods of people running across our borders, etc. But Obama is such a great success.
