The investigation remains halted by a state court decision from January, and the probe’s future now rests with Wisconsin appellate courts. However, some justices on the Wisconsin Supreme Court could have a conflict of interest: the four-justice Republican majority was elected by millions in spending from the same groups under investigation in the coordination probe, calling into question whether they can be impartial.

Randa rebuffed

The 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals made it clear Wednesday that federal Judge Rudolph Randa overreached when he blocked the secret John Doe investigation involving Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the probe will continue – although it should – but it does mean that Randa’s effort to involve himself in state politics was out of order, as we and others have argued.

“What we have said shows not only that an injunction was an abuse of discretion but also that (as prosecutors) all defendants possess qualified immunity from liability in damages,” wrote Judge Frank Easterbrook in the decision.

It’s a funny thing about Scott Walker’s much touted tax cuts; they’re negated by the state’s cost shift to local governments. “Stand with Walker” Borgeteers can never seem to connect those dots. We saw that when districts increased taxes to make up for lost revenues to voucher schools, and they didn’t even notice. Conservative voters refuse to see how they’re paying more, even after passing funding referendums.
