I know that many of you were disappointed when Scott Walker, Fartfuhrer of the Fascist Republican Plutocracy of Fitzwalkerstan, won a close recall election and prevented that region from becoming Wisconsin again. In our hearts we knew that he achieved that feat by criminal means. At long last, it’s official.
Prosecutors allege that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) was at the center of a criminal conspiracy to illegally coordinate the activities of independent conservative groups during recall elections in his state in 2011 and 2012, according to documents released Thursday and first reported on by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Prosecutors contend in the documents that Walker had direct knowledge that his top deputies R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl were involved in the alleged illegal coordination between the Walker campaign and 12 conservative groups.
The documents, part of a John Doe investigation, were unsealed in a lawsuit brought by the Wisconsin Club for Growth, the central player in the alleged illegal coordination, and other groups seeking to halt the investigation as a violation of their First Amendment rights.

In one unsealed email from Walker to Karl Rove, chief political strategist to former President George W.

If you remember, we wouldn’t have these documents, if Republicans had gotten their way when a Republican ideologue on the federal bench, Rudolph Randa, tried to shutter the investigation and ordered these same documents destroyed. For that I gave him a Republicans on Parade Award on May 20. Chris Hayes also covered the story at that time.
Rachel Maddow also provided coverage of this issue. In this clip, we get a bonus PIGnocchio roast, and she even picks on a Democrat, too.
As for Brian Schweitzer, no wonder he’s the former governor. I never saw a chance that he could get the Democratic nomination, but I see a possible place for him at Comedy Central.
I am so ready for these investigations to wind down so that the Fartfuhrer and PIGnocchio can face prosecution for their crimes.
