3. Nixon abolished the task force that investigated him.

Scott Walker's Coup in Plain Sight

Scott Walker's codifying Republican rule through Republican legislation in Wisconsin is unprecedented.

This legislative project was attempted in secret, until Walker backed down last July in his effort to kill Wisconsin's Open Records law, a law he broke (Mal Contends). So Walker is attempting his efforts through Republican legislators in broad daylight (Truthout).

The reaction to this series of Republican power grabs and killing of corruption protection won't be like the firing of Archibald Cox, though it should be.

Walker and the Republican legislators are engineering the destruction of Wisconsin clean government:

The end of Wisconsin's century-old Civil Service law replaced by Republican-vetted hiring, ultimately of some 30,000 state workers
'Republicans' dismantling the Government Accountability Board (GAB), a nonpartisan panel of former judges that investigate campaign finance and ethics violations
Per the Club for Growth, Republicans' destroying law enforcement tool to fight political corruption and protect public integrity in public office, because Walker would likely would face misconduct in public office charges after the likely vacating in federal court of the corrupt Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling on consolidated John Doe cases decided in July 2015, (PRWatch). ill would prevent district attorneys from using Wisconsin's John Doe law to investigate crimes like bribery and misconduct in public office (WPR)
Republicans' funneling more money into political campaigns
John Doe Exemption of Public Misconduct
