Sources say Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is Now the Target of Corruption Probe | Wisconsin Politics
During last Thursday’s debate, Walker buckled under pressure from host Mike Gousha to answer the question as to why he hasn’t been more transparent about the John Doe corruption probe. Scott Walker’s Teflon personality must have worn through when he replied that District Attorney John Chisholm requested he remain silent on the issue.
The answer stunned many of those who are familiar with John Doe investigations because a DA would not request a target to remain silent, as anything they would say opens doors to the investigation. The John Doe judge, however, could issue ‘gag’ orders to targets. Walker’s statement was an off the cuff gaffe that confirmed the very real legal troubles he may be facing. Walker also admitted to a $160,000 transfer into his legal defense fund over the last six weeks. Further, Walker stated the fund was for his defense and not for his former staff and agents who have already been charged in the probe.
