Special Prosecutor To Probe Wisconsin's Non-Recall of Walker

Abby Zimet

Welcome to John Doe Act 2, wherein Wisconsin has appointed a special prosecutor to look into allegations of campaign violations and other misdeeds by Scott Walker and his well-funded friends during last year's unsuccessful recall election. The probe, which is following up on a number of leads revealed during an earlier John Doe that saw six Walker cronies convicted on criminal charges, has spread to at least five counties. Slime in Walkerland? Color us shocked.
