Back in November I wrote a post about the war on Scott Walker, the man democrats fear the most. It hasn’t gone well for liberals, and so they have resorted to outright slander and libel.
Demented democrat prosecutors in Wisconsin have been conducting a John Doe probe for the last few years, bottom feeding in an effort to find something with which to try someone on the right. Anything.
Watchdog.org has a done a marvelous job on this obscene war on Scott Walker. You can read about all the left wing media malpractice here. The probe was shut down twice. After the second shutdown, there was a predictable document dump. Again, predictably, the left wing media seized on it and tried and convicted Scott Walker immediately.

Gov. Scott Walker’s Campaign Violations
In the years since that disastrous opinion, politicians around the country have set out to prove Justice Kennedy wrong by stealthily working with the “independent” groups that raise money on their behalf. The latest to get caught doing so is Gov. Scott Walker, Republican of Wisconsin. According to state prosecutors, he was at the helm of a broad and illegal fund-raising effort that involved coordinating with outside spending groups and even controlling them.
Campaign violations! Done deal! Sentence first, trial later! What contemptible bullshit.
Evidence Mounting that Walker Campaign Is at Center of Criminal Probe
Newly-unsealed court documents and media leaks add to a growing body of evidence that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s campaign is at the center of a wide-ranging secret probe into campaign finance violations during the state’s contentious 2011 and 2012 recall elections.
The John Doe probe began in August of 2012 and is examining possible “illegal campaign coordination between (name redacted), a campaign committee, and certain special interest groups,” according to an unsealed filing in the case. Sources told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the redacted committee is the Walker campaign, Friends of Scott Walker. Campaign filings show that Walker spent $86,000 on legal fees in the second half of 2013.

Gov. Scott Walker Has Violated Campaign Finance Laws More Than 1,000 Times Since 2009
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has committed 1,115 violations of campaign finance law, totaling more than $500,000 worth of fines, since 2009. This includes 456 violations in the last 72 hours, worth nearly $284,000. Under Wisconsin statute, each violation invites a fine of $500:
“Scott Walker has improperly reported well over $500,000 in contributions from inside and outside of Wisconsin,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. “Scott Walker has absolutely no interest in following the campaign finance rules of the state of Wisconsin and we again call for state regulators to address his serial violation of our laws.”
Scott Walker Investigated in Secret Wisconsin Probe
Watching Scotty Blow
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker participated in a “criminal scheme” to coordinate fundraising for Republicans trying to beat back efforts to recall him and state senators from office, local prosecutors argue in court documents released Thursday.

And what’s important to WaPo?
MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has had his eye on a 2016 presidential run since his battles with labor unions made him a Republican star, is dealing with the fallout of two criminal investigations at home that could complicate his move to the national stage.
One is ongoing, and although the other is closed and found no wrongdoing by Walker, it has the potential to embarrass him.
And that’s what it always has been about- killing Scott Walker’s infant national campaign in the crib. I have no doubt that support for this comes from a white house in Washington DC.
Well guess what? Walker was NOT the target of the probe. It’s only fair that we send props to MD Kittle at Watchdog:
MADISON, Wis. – After last week’s breathless headlines putting Gov. Scott Walker at the center of a nationwide “criminal scheme,” the mainstream and left-leaning media are being forced to step back from such sensational indictments.
The man doing the forcing is the special prosecutor who raised the specter of said conspiracy in a court document — part of 268 pages of previously sealed records dumped last week by order of a federal appeals court and embraced by John Doe prosecutors.
An attorney for Francis Schmitz, one of several prosecutors involved in the secret John Doe investigation into dozens of conservative groups, sent out a statement Thursday, clarifying that Walker was not a target of the investigation and at no time “has he been served with a subpoena.”
Attorney Randall Crocker’s statement comes exactly one week after the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals’ unsealing of documents related to a civil rights lawsuit against the John Doe prosecutors. Within minutes the legacy media and left-leaning outlets were frothing about what Schmitz had described in a court document as an “expansive” investigation. Stories everywhere pushed a theme of Walker engaged in a “criminal scheme.”
Not true, Schmitz’s attorney said a week after the damage of widespread press coverage had been done.
After several years and who know how much money prosecutors have nothing. This probe has been conducted with all the character of the KGB- in secrecy all the way.
What the left wing Obama-sucking media has done is a crime.
And a blessing.
These “news” outlets have just committed murder. They have killed their integrity. Regarding them as anything other than flacks for Barack Obama and the democrat party is simply impossible. Who would be stupid enough to put credence in anything they say now? This is the media who sees nothing wrong with the IRS targeting private citizens because of their political views. This is the same media who cannot find anything wrong with evidence being destroyed over and over and over. They’re despicable. They’re wretched.
And they may just have paved Scott Walker’s road to the White House.
