The Other Shoe Drops for Scott Walker. Another John Doe Probe Revealed and It's Statewide!

Source: Daily Kos

A former top-level assistant U.S. attorney has been appointed a special prosecutor in a burgeoning, secret investigation into a wide variety of state issues, including possible campaign violations during the recent recall elections, multiple sources said.
Francis Schmitz who spent nearly 30 years as a federal prosecutor and was once a finalist for U.S. attorney in Milwaukee is leading the widespread John Doe probe, according to sources.

Overseeing the case is Kenosha County Circuit Judge Barbara A. Kluka, who has been used by Milwaukee County judicial officials in past John Doe cases.

This is the type of news that normally dumps out late on Friday, but here it is first thing on Monday. Better yet, this probe was going on BEFORE the Milwaukee County John Doe Probe closed after the conviction of Kelly Reindfleisch, the former top aide to County Executive Scott Walker and 6th associate of his to be charged and convicted.

Just based on my FB feed and reading conservatives conversations and postings, the feeding frenzy

is well underway. Vote them all out! No, save 18. No screw the 18, most of em voted for..., McConnell memes already about the earmark. Yep, there is much gnashing of teeth. Onward to 2014!

"You get nothing".-President Barack Obama, to Speaker Boehner and the Teapublicans.

No link, but DailyKos is reporting on FB that the Senate will convene at noon, when a final deal is

expected to be announced.

Amar Kaleka, Son Of Slain Sikh Temple President, Plans To Run For Congress Against Paul Ryan

MILWAUKEE -- MILWAUKEE (AP) The son of a slain Sikh temple president plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan in next year's congressional election, in a Wisconsin district where support for the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee has been strong but slipping.

Amar Kaleka, 35, told The Associated Press he'll file paperwork Wednesday to form an exploratory congressional committee. He plans to formally announce his candidacy as a Democrat next month.

Kaleka said he wants to bring accountability and transparency back to Washington. He blamed the government shutdown on Ryan, who's the House Budget Committee chairman, and his GOP colleagues. He said citizens are tired of career politicians who care more about staying in power than serving the people.

"There's a fever in the nation, and specifically in this district, for our leaders to stop playing politics and do their jobs," Kaleka said. "All I want to do is bring democracy a government of, for and by the people back to America."

Is it too soon to start lamenting the NSA Security State again? Or is that over now that we have

other faux crises on the tee vee? Just kinda wondering...I know we are all giddy at the prospects heading into 2014, so this topic is kind of the albatross of the decade that the PTB would rather we all forgot about whilst electioneering is underway...
