So what happened to the investigations regarding Scott Walker and Judge Prosser?


Scott Walker faced down Wisconsin’s voters, but he may yet have to do battle with the legal system.

An investigation by the Milwaukee district attorney’s office into misconduct by people tied to the controversial Wisconsin Republican during his two terms as county executive is circling closer to Walker, with one reporter alleging this week that the governor has become the target of both the probe and a separate federal investigation.

The D.A.’s John Doe investigation into associates of Walker during his time as the Milwaukee county executive, launched in 2010, has to date led to charges against six people, including Walker’s former deputy chief of staff. While Walker himself has not been charged with wrongdoing, the investigation is ongoing and over the past seven weeks Walker has transferred $160,000 from his campaign to a legal-defense fund that he maintains is to cover the expense of cooperating with the probe.


TWO WISCONSIN AGENCIES NOW INVESTIGATING ALLEGED JUDGE-ON-JUDGE ASSAULT | Dane County, Wisconsin Sheriff Dave Mahoney released a statement today indicating that he has “agreed to investigate” whether Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser grabbed fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley by the neck. Additionally, the Wisconsin Judicial Commission released a brief statement stating that “[t]he Commission authorized an investigation of the incident at its meeting on Friday, June 24, 2011.” Shortly after news broke of this alleged incident on Saturday, right-wing bloggers leapt to Prosser’s defense, claiming that if Bradley were telling the truth, she would have reported the incident sooner. The Judicial Commission’s statement, however, confirms that this incident was reported well before it became public.
