WisDems Seek Information on J.B. Van Hollen Role in Scott Walker Corruption Probe
September 21, 2011

Wisconsin Democrats on Wednesday submitted Open Records requests to Attorney General J.B. Van Hollens office, following news reports that Van Hollen had refused help to a growing corruption probe of Walker.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that, while Van Hollen had offered resources in the prosecution of Milwaukee Ald. Michael McGee, it refused to assist in the growing secret investigation of former and current aides to Gov. Scott Walker. The request for assistance was made by Milwaukee County D.A. Chisholm in November of 2010.

J.B. Van Hollen has been close to Scott Walker and committed to operating the Department of Justice as an adjunct to Walkers radical Tea Party agenda, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Wednesday. That Wisconsins Tea Party top cop refused help to prosecutors in a corruption probe of Wisconsins Tea Party government should concern every citizen, regardless of party. Justice should be blind, regardless of whether one is a cheerleader for the Koch Brothers agenda or not.
