It seems like some slick stuff has been going on up in cheese country.
"Documents unsealed by a federal judge Thursday revealed prosecutors’ allegations against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R), whom they called the center of a “criminal scheme” to coordinate funds during the 2011-12 recall elections.
Prosecutors accuse Walker and two deputies, R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl, of circumventing election law by machinating fundraising efforts among various GOP candidates and conservative groups. The apparent smoking gun is an email from Walker to Republican strategist Karl Rove outlining the coordination and naming Johnson, also chief adviser to Wisconsin Club for Growth, as the conductor.
The documents were unsealed due to a lawsuit by the Club for Growth, which has temporarily halted the investigation." [Source]
There is that Karl Rove guy again. ("Romney by a landslide") He is hurting more than helping candidates at this point.
But Walker has no one to blame but himself for his latest issues. Like his larger than life cohort and political soul-mate in New Jersey, Scott Walker started to read and believe all those flattering press clippings about Scott Walker.
Still, as is to be expected, the Governor is blaming his problems on others.
"Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker responded on Twitter earlier tonight about prosecutors’ allegations over his involvement in a “criminal scheme” to coordinate fundraising efforts.
Walker dismissed it as a partisan witch hunt and cites rulings from two judges that have already vindicated his innocence.
Here’s what Walker had to say on Twitter:

The accusation of any wrongdoing written in the complaint by the office of a partisan Dem DA by me or by my campaign is categorically false.
We will see Governor, we will see.
Finally, I saw Dick (if I only had a heart) Cheney and his daughter on television the other night ripping Obama a new one for botching the war in Iraq. Let me repeat that: DICK CHENEY WAS ON NATIONAL TELEVISION CRITICIZING THE PRESIDENT'S IRAQI POLITICS! Now that, my friends, is called chutzpah.
It's so bad that one of the hosts on the republican news network had to check him on it. If you are a republican that's when you know that you have officially gone over the top. When a FOX Views host confronts you about something.
Honestly, I have seen some pretty good and constructive criticism of the president over the past few days, but what Cheney did and said was baffling; even for him.
I bet W is somewhere in Texas just wishing that he would shut up and just go away.
But we all know that he can't. Not until that heart of his stops ticking.
