"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 [Seventh U.S. Circuit Court Judge Frank H. Easterbrook] court judge Thursday morning, prosecutors described what they called a "criminal scheme" to circumvent state campaign finance and election laws....
Lawyers for Wisconsin Club for Growth respond:
"These documents show how the John Doe prosecutors adopted a blatantly unconstitutional interpretation of Wisconsin law that they used to launch a secret criminal investigation targeting conservatives throughout Wisconsin. That legal theory has now been rejected by two courts," said Andrew Grossman of Baker Hostetler, the law firm representing Club for Growth. "Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and this is a story that needs to be told to prevent more abuses and to hold the John Doe prosecutors accountable for violating the rights of Wisconsinites."
IN THE COMMENTS: rcommal said:
Note the inconsistent use of tense in this piece. It's the "tell" that its goal is not to illuminate but to mislead. Reportage, my ass.
ADDED: The NYT says:
Legal filings by the prosecutors provided a rare view of the inner workings of a far-flung network of conservative nonprofit groups that have come to play a decisive role in national and state elections, moving hundreds of millions of dollars into campaigns by avoiding traditional political action committees that face tougher disclosure requirements.

Some of the groups, in Wisconsin and elsewhere, appear to serve as little more than conduits for funneling money from donors around the country to an array of allied organizations with ties to specific constituencies, such as gun owners or abortion opponents. Prosecutors allege that the groups in Wisconsin coordinated closely with allies of Mr. Walker both in the state and in Washington, with Mr. Walker’s campaign consultants simultaneously advising him on political strategy and television advertising while also raising money and directing the activities of an array of outside groups.

What a lovely state.

Michael K said...

Lots of wishful thinking exposed there.

Mattman26 said...

What an odd little story. You read the headline and think they've just brought charges against Walker. But then you read the story, and I think it's just that recently released documents show that that's what prosecutors were thinking internally. It would be nice to have some clarification!

SGT Ted said...

Yea. No charges filed.

We knew long ago the investigation was precisely about this alleged coordination, so why the big scary headlines. We already knew about their fishing expedition that the Democrat Party prosecutors hoped would net them the evidence.

But still no charges filed. When they file charges I won't be surprised but it is pretty clear that the prosecutors have a political conflict of interest.

I'm thinking the prosecutor will attempt a Tom DeLay type political law-fare indictment stunt that will be ultimately dismissed, but can be used until then to hang around his neck as a "criminal" and derail Walkers career.

So, when are they going to file charges? When it is politically convenient to do so.

tim in vermont said...

I am pretty sure that the investigation is non partisan. You know how I know this? The "secret routers" raid happened just a couple days before the election. Partisan prosecutors would never do that. Like the prosecutors who indicted Cap Weinberger on the Friday before the election.

These people are above reproach.

Mattman26 said...

In follow-up to my earlier post: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article, which contains a similar headline and much of the same substance, makes (pretty) clear that this is documentation now being released regarding the investigation that was quashed by a federal judge a while back. Which would suggest that Walker is not being officially accused of anything; this is just what the guys whose investigation has been shut down were thinking. Weird.

K in Colorado said...

Mattman26, that was exactly what I was thinking. The Low Information Voter is going to see these misleading headlines and think he has actually been charge with these criminal activities, or is about the charged with them. Of course the media is not going to put "Two Courts have dismissed the wrongful investigation of Scott Walker on charges of ..."

MadisonMan said...

Interesting use of tense.

Ann Althouse said...

The litigation is in the 7th Circuit on the First Amendment claim. The prosecutors seem to have proceeded on an aggressive reading of the state criminal law statute that includes the kind of "coordination" that can't be made a crime and that is in fact within a free-speech right of association. That's what the district judge said, and I expect that's what the 7th Circuit will say. That is, the "sweeping… scheme" is just a "scheme" to exercise first amendment rights.

retired said...

I am reading a novel set in Communist China in during the "Cultural Revolution." The actions of the government and the communist party remind me of the actions of the current US government and the democratic party. This novel was written in 2000.

"We cannot let a minority of people – and it’s, that’s what it is, it is a minority of people – hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” said Hillary Clinton.

Despicable.

AReasonableMan said...

Where's garage?

traditionalguy said...

A Crime! Did you hear the headline? There was a serious crime.

How many years in jail did Walker get? Or was his punishment only the rumors to scare his political supporters, a stay in donation purgatory and insane legal fees?

And who appointed the procecutors or their boss?

Gahrie said...

That is, the "sweeping… scheme" is just a "scheme" to exercise first amendment rights.

Yet another case of the Left acting like facists.

Democrats fight dirty, Republicans fight stupid. Judges generally help the Democrats. Looking forward to seeing how the 7th Circuit helps the Democrats this time.
It will be epic.

Who are the prosecutors? Who are the "unknown people" who opposed the unsealing? What's the case number in the Court of Appeals?

David said...

Conspiracy!

They can't prove an actual crime so allege conspiracy.

In a just world, these prosecutors would be out of a job. But if will never be a just world if liberals think that anything goes in trying to defeat their political enemies. It's really sad that liberalism has come to this pass.

Over to you, Garage.

Progressivism = Fascism. Just.shut.up. Or we'll make your life miserable.

It needs the scary label "scheme" to justify the outrage.

Otherwise, it's just people from the same political party talking to each other and that's not any kind of sexy talk that gets the lefties panties in a wad.

Thanks for sharing this, as I had a headline on MyYahoo that didn't give an article. I knew where to look for someone in the know!

Michael The Magnificent said...

A sweeping scheme to inappropriately collect private information, and leak it to the public. Not unlike the IRS inappropriately demanding information, and then leaking it to their friends on the left.

Mark said...

Walker has had Teflon in the past. We will see if that continues as the drip drip of documents keeps up.

It is worth noting that the accused had no issue unsealing this document, just a whole sheaf of other ones. It will be interesting to see what comes out next.

Because there will be a next. Walker and CFG have been playing hardball and that doesn't always work out perfect, too many documents are being asked for.

tim in vermont said...

I think Madison Man is OK, and Garage is fine if you stay away from politics. I bet Crack would be fun to have a beer with if he didn't think he had an audience.

Alex said...

Either they file charges or STFU. I'm really sick of this attempted intimidation of Walker by a corrupt prosecution office.

Anonymous said...

We knew long ago the investigation was precisely about this alleged coordination

The coordination is not "alleged". Everyone involved has admitted they were doing exactly that, rather what is being disputed is if state election laws have to be followed or not.

But let everybody's favorite boy scout potentially scrape his little knee and look at the crowd of "concerned citizens" he can gather.

No matter that I can go by a board on segregation and see:

A list of the most segregated cities in the U.S.:

1 - Milwaukee


"I'm surprised Boston is not on that list. I lived there for 22 years and it is the most segregated place I ever lived. I shudder to think what Milwaukee is like."

I lived just outside Milwaukee for two years.

I was... shocked.


"Honestly, in Milwaukee, even the whites are segregated."

So - Milwaukee grosses everybody out. Congratulations, Scott I-made-my-political-career-here Walker, on this "win" (if that's what this release is) but your punk ass still ain't out the woods yet.

Which is fine because, for some reason, white people like it out there,...

Yes.

A lefty obama supporter actually wrote that at this point in time.

Zero, nada, zilch self-awareness.

traditionalguy said...

Drudge is redlining a headline that Walker is now being accused of Criminal co-ordinating of donations.

No hint anywhere that this is a release from secrecy of a several years old DA's application for a John Doe secret subpoena investigation of charges that have recently been thrown out of court.

Gahrie said...

I know...lets ask Torecelli....

There are a myriad of cases of democrats ignoring state election laws when it pleases them.

Alex said...

I thought it was "innocent until proven guilty". I didn't know prosecutors were allowed to go in public and make accusations without filing charges.

Garage - are you ok with that king of political gangsterism?

Alex said...

However without this coordination, Walker surely would not have beaten back the recall. He never did have a chance considering the left-wing machine set against him.

Birkel said...

madisonfella (aka Inga):
"The coordination is not "alleged". Everyone involved has admitted they were doing exactly that, rather what is being disputed is if state election laws have to be followed or not."

So you think we must all "admit" when we exercise our Constitutionally protected First Amendment rights? In what universe is this true? I don't admit to exercising my God-given rights. I exercise them.

I call bull shit, madisonfella. I'm not in the habit of pre-clearing my Constitutionally protected rights with anybody.

But you're ready to go Full Fascist, aren't you? The Left is and always has been the same. You have to break a few Constitutionally protected eggs to make an oppressive, economy-killing, centrally planned, tasteless omelet. Right? Piss off.

I thought what was in dispute was the prosecutors interpretation of the law and if it is constitutional.

Curious George said...

In the end there will be once again no charges. Millions of dollars and thousands in man hours spent simply to produce headlines that will hurt Walker and dry up donations. The criminal is that fuck Chisholm.

Bobber Fleck said...

It took very little time for the La Crosse Tribune to make this their lead "Walker hit piece" online.

This will be fuel for equally misleading editorials over the next week. Commenters who always declare drug dealers innocent (not "presumed innocent") until proven guilty are declaring Walker guilty until convicted. --Never mind the lack of charges.

Have it in for Walker. Or is that a regional difference of idiom?

And the banner on Yahoo's landing page says, "Charges haven't been filed, but prosecutors say Scott Walker was part of an illegal national effort ..."

Just as you think the press can't really be this bad, it proves that it can be, and is.

Funny no major paper could write a story on the fact that the Democratic Party of Wisconsin's 2014 platform supports repeal and a ban on concealed carry. And a "no outsourcing" policy, right before they endorsed Mary "Send those jobs to China" Burke.

Dave said...

a "scheme" to exercise first amendment rights.

About half the country doesn't believe we should have those first amendment rights.

That's the result of increasing partisan delineation. Democrats keep talking about how extreme the GOP has become while they systematically dismantle the Constitutional republic, use government to target their political opponents, and rule by fiat. They're off in their socialist bubble exposing micro-aggression and saving the oceans.

Think the U.S. can't become a banana republic? Imagine if Democrats held the House and gained three seats on the SCOTUS, you could watch all your pretty property and free speech rights flutter away like crumbling leaves in the wind...

ignatzk said...

This is about the press.

The State Journal, Journal Sentinel and AP are coordinating in a hit piece designed to make readers think there is current event that is "prosecutors accuse...".

And it is working. The story is picked up on RCP, Fox, Drudge, etc.

StoughtonSconnie said...

So to paraphrase the NYT excerpt, people who hold a particular viewpoint pooled their money together to provide themselves a greater voice, and that money was, gasp, used to support people with similar ideas. Quelle horreur!

So US Supreme Court be damned, the NYT, Garage, and the commentariate in Madison have ruled that this is entirely too much free speech.

Anonymous said...

The headline for this should read:

Fishing Expedition for Kangaroo Court Sunk!

Douglas said...

So let me get this straight. Gov. Walker was accused by prosecutors of engaging in a criminal conspiracy to exercise his first amendment rights of free association? Maybe I'm missing something, but this sounds remarkably like the Chinese Communist Party's interpretation of freedom of speech - you can say anything you want, as long as it doesn't disturb "social harmony," and you can associate with anyone you want, so long as the Party approves in advance. Don't Democrats realize how awful their legal theories are in this case, how far afield they have strayed from core American beliefs about political freedom?

campy said...

"So to paraphrase the NYT excerpt, people who hold a particular viewpoint pooled their money together to provide themselves a greater voice, ..."

Isn't this what happens during any campaign?

Unlike Obama's where he turned off the security code on cc in order to accept illegal foreign donations or say Journolist, where the media coordinated and allied with Obama to keep anything negative he did/does from seeing the light of day.

I'm as confused as the next person about this whole lawsuit (and these present-tense articles today aren't helping), but why should Club for Growth sit by as Prosecutors fish? After years of investigation, and finding nothing?

Do you keep trying to fish from a dead lake? I think not.

I have to go down to Princeton every month and fly into Newark. I get picked up by A1 limos and all the drivers are oldies that had previous jobs they lost.

They all bitch about blacks voting as a block, illegal immigrants, Obama, etc.

I found myself bitching right along with them. I go, "yea what about fucking Hilary?" And they go off.

Then I bitch about the gays and the muzzies and the blacks and they illegals right along with them, getting them more whipped up. "Fucking fag marriage" I said.

Yesterday, a guy from Coney Island, who moved to New Jersey, and wants to retire to Panama (where I guess you can live off of $1000 a month and hardly any taxes and good medical care), and I got into about the Redskin name change shit. I was really pissed. I was like fuck the Indians but not the lalalalala Indians because we both agreed they are hard workers and bring jobs to this country.

We also both agreed Hilary is a dyke and Bill is still getting pussy on the side but has signed agreements and specific pay schedules for the whores he does.

He pays 20,000 a year in housing taxes-highest housing taxes in the country, but Christie is working to resolve this issue.

What's that all about?

The reality is, and always has been, that the lefties know obama and his federal depts have and continue to target conservatives and political opponents.

The left also knows that their charges against Walker and others are BS.

And that's precisely what the left ENJOYS about this.

It makes them positively giddy.

This is who the left is and always has been.

But only every single time and every single place that the leftists gain critical mass in terms of political power.

The US will be no different and is already well on the path to that outcome.

Our trajectory is set. It's simply a matter of time.

Doing something that a law was intended to prevent is not necessarily breaking the law.
I can still remember hand wringing among gun control advocates who accused gun owners of "getting around" the assault weapons ban on old military rifles by sawing the bayonet mounts off. They were in fact complying with the law. Just not in the way lawmakers had predicted.

It's obvious they have the goods- such as they are- on at least alleged illegal coordination between recall campaigns and outside groups. Walker was bragging in an email to Karl Rove about it. A more honest position is that there should be no investigations into campaign finance laws whatsoever. It's always partisan! Even when it clearly isn't.

Chuck said...

My God, this is without a doubt the worst-reported story in America right now.

Surely the vast majority of the national and international audience of MSM-consumers are now convinced that Scott Walker is currently facing some very serious charges.

The byzantine nature of the current crop of civil suits over the Wisconsin "John Doe" law and the investigation(s) that it has spawned are going right over the heads of the vast majority of the public.

Please, Wisconsin conservatives; find someone -- find a bunch of smart people -- to write about this story and put it in proper context.

If you Google right now, what you come up with is a litany of stories from MSNBC, Huffington Post, NYT, CBS, DailyKos, all crowing about how "prosecutors say Walker led criminal scheme..." And virtually none of them make any real sense out of the story.

For those not following this in the state, this John Doe witchhunt has been shut down. The prosecutors are being sued for civil rights violations. In some ways this document dump also serves as discovery for the plaintants whose civil rights have been violated.

As has been noted above this is Wisconsin's version of lawfare similiar to the IRS's persecution of Americans nation-wide.

I have made additional contribution to the Club for Growth which will ulitimately ruin the consigliere of the criminal enterprise and his hunchbacked thugs. Hope you will join me.

Chuck said...
My God, this is without a doubt the worst-reported story in America right now.

Wrong.

This is without a doubt precisely the way the left wants this story reported, thus from their point of view this is the "best-reported story in America right now."

It has already taken root. Millions of Americans by the end of the week will believe:
1) These are new charges
2) That have been investigated
3) and Walker is guilty
4) Indictments have already been handed down
5) Walker has probably already been convicted of something.

Think of how quickly the "74 school shootings" meme ran the gamut of media.

It's now up there with "more women beaten on Super Bowl Sunday" and "more birth defects caused by men beating women than all other causes PUT TOGETHER" (yes, some on the left are still offering up this absurd-on-it's-face assertion).

Since some of those offering up that absurd assertion are white, it's a guarantee that Crack already believes it.
