Payback time in Wisconsin ウィスコンシン州知事へ仕返しの動き
Payback time in Wisconsin
Some liberals think it’s payback time in Wisconsin. Conservatives have made substantial inroads in traditionally blue states, notably with the election and retention of Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, in Wisconsin. Democrats think this is unacceptable, and they’re using a prosecutor and his power and authority to deliver the message.
Three years ago, the Milwaukee County district attorney opened an unusual legal process known as a “John Doe” investigation, targeting a who’s who of prominent Republicans and conservatives in Wisconsin, looking for violations of campaign-finance law. Under this rarely used procedure, groups such as Americans for Prosperity and the Club for Growth have been forced to turn over hundreds of thousands of emails and confidential documents.
