An ugly precedent set by state supreme court justices this week.
That’s according to Jay Heck from Wisconsin Common Cause. He says, with justices ruling an end to a John Doe probe into illegal campaign coordination activity between governor Walker and supporters, the state is looking at a world of full-blown, money-driven politics and will likely see current campaign spending limits openly ignored.
Heck says the decision was also driven by money because the same groups for which majority justices ruled in favor were the ones donating big to get those justices elected in the first place.
This is the second secret John Doe probe focused on Walker’s campaign activities since he took office.
