The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that the John Doe Investigation into Scott Walker’s current and former aides is seeking to offer immunity to another individual. The continuing investigation being overseen by former Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim(Appleton) is investigating current and former Walker aides’ conduct while employed by Milwaukee County, while Walker was County Executive. The secret John Doe investigation is looking into allegations of County staff doing campaign work for Walker while working on County time, using County resources.
The individual had appealed to keep their identity confidential – an appeal which was rejected by the District 2 Court of Appeals. The person’s name has not yet been released.
There have been two other people granted immunity in exchange for secret testimony thus far – Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie and GOP operative Rose Ann Dieck.
Perhaps unrelated…? Scott Walker, according to Cullen Werwie, had to hold the Capitol “Christmas Tree” lighting early on Friday morning due to a “scheduled obligation” in Milwaukee later in the day. Of course, he was most likely attempting to avoid a significant recall demonstration…
Just another day in Fitzwalkerstan.
