More charges expected against ex-Walker staffers, sources say

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Daniel Bice

A new round of criminal charges is coming soon against at least a couple of Gov. Scott Walker's former county staffers for doing extensive campaign activity while on the taxpayers' dime, sources say.

The charges - which should be filed by District Attorney John Chisholm's office in the next week or two - will be part of the long-running John Doe investigation of Walker's aides and associates during his tenure as Milwaukee County executive.

(snip)

The upcoming charges, sources said, will not mark the end of the 20-month criminal investigation.

The next phase, insiders say, is focusing on the role some of Walker's closest associates and county employees had in a real estate deal involving a county agency. The point man on the deal, real estate broker Andrew Jensen, was arrested last month for allegedly failing to cooperate with the investigation. Jensen, who was not charged, is set to meet with prosecutors this week.

5. If he knows where all the skeletons are buried, hell yes!

Walker and his entire circle of cronies should be indicted and charged with every crime we can find evidence for (we all know they've committed several hundred additional crimes over their sordid careers that nobody will ever know about). Hang 'em high!

6. on the other hand ... ...


These guys won't give up anything, for at least two reasons.

1. they are republicant's, so they figure that God will help them

And

2. They know that there is a bag-man around with lots of money to keep their lips tight.

16. This investigation moving at a snail pace. Probably the reason why the Wisconsin

State Attorney wouldn't help.. He wanted to slow things down...
