The investigation into Walker's former aides and associates began in May 2010, six months before he was elected governor. Six people have been charged with crimes including misconduct in office and theft, but Walker has not been charged or accused of any wrongdoing.[...]Still, the investigation hounded Walker during his recall election, which he won handily in June.http://m.host.madison.com/wsj/news/loca ... 963f4.html

I'll tell you one thing: If you could go to federal prison for looking like a hardcore narcotics abuser in every photo ever taken of you, Walker would have been locked up years ago.

Seriously, what the fuck is up with this dude?! Every shot in every paper (irrespective of political bias) shows him straining through the fog of his own self-semi-consciousness like some soon-to-be-stung campus mule who just washed down a fistful of Soma with a milkshake from a 3-foot bong.

I don't always wear an ass-ugly $75 polo shirt, but when I do, I make sure it's from a school I couldn't get into.

That's just what he wants you to think. He's actually this razor-sharp, Harvard-educated constitutional law scholar with...

oops, wrong guy.

Hey, guess what. Walker is saying he's hopeful the John Doe will be over next week:

Maybe the way they read Walker's staff emails into the court record at the recent sentencing hearing really does mean they're winding up. What do you think?

Here's what defense lawyer Franklynn Gimbel says in the article:

"If they thought they had a winnable case against Walker, that case would have been brought," Gimbel said of prosecutors.

Does this deserve a new topic all its own, or is it part of the one we're already in?

http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/ ... 23161.html

Headline:
DA to hold open John Doe in death of patient at Mental Health Complex

The emails the DA read into the record at Kelly Rindfleisch's sentencing indicated hampering news coverage of patient deaths at the county mental health facility was one of her activities while working in Walker's office when he was Milw Co Executive.

Walker's daily briefings with his staff in all matters are irrelevant to the investigation in the same way that the 3 judge panel ruling was when they ruled that GHW BU$H's diary of the Iran/Contra meetings he oversaw were irrelevant to the Iran/Contra investigation*.

The original Walker John Doe isn't done -- sorry, Scott. Here's another of your guys cooperating in the ongoing investigation:

This is the slowest story in the world, but it's not going away.

And don't miss the link offered by a commenter:

Seems same-day voter registration isn't all bad when you're helping your own kid register, eh Scott?

Walker transfers another $40,000 to legal fund

Looks like the governor doesn't think he is off the hook.
