Documents released today by the defense lawyer for former confidant and aide to Scott Walker, Tim Russell, suggest otherwise. According to Tim Russell’s testimony, Scott Walker obstructed the investigation from day one and did not personally call for the investigation.

A lawyer for Tim Russell acknowledged today that he released documents that resulted in a news story saying Scott Walker’s administration had stonewalled the investigation of money stolen from a fund for veterans. [...]

Meanwhile, Judge David Hansher delayed the trial, which had been scheduled for June, until Sept. 10 because of pre-trial publicity, including Russell’s photo being featured in anti-Walker ads. The prosecution did not oppose the delayed trial date. [...]

Today was the final pretrial hearing for Russell, charged in the Milwaukee Co. John Doe case. The charges against Russell allege that he stole more than $20,000 from a fund established by Walker to put on an annual celebration at the zoo for veterans and their families. He also is accused of stealing money from Republican candidates he was advising.

Hansher met with Russell, prosecutors and defense lawyer Dennis Krueger behind closed doors for nearly an hour before coming into open court. [...]

Krueger had gotten the John Doe testimony from prosecutors as part of pre-trial discovery and included it in his motion to dismiss the charges.

In chambers, Krueger acknowledged he had released the info with his client’s approval.

It seems clear that now that his own ass is on the line, Tim Russell is giving up the goods on Scott Walker.

Tim Russell revealed that not only did Walker not call for the investigation, the lead investigators on the case were obstructed for two years before opening the investigation themselves. </div></div>

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Actually based on what you have been telling us since his first day in office the only people fighting to get into the booth with be lefties to vote him out. If the race is close then you will have been seriously wrong whether he stays or not.

Another lie. I didn't write anything about him on his first day in office.

Don't you ever get tired of arguing and making stuff up.

How about addressing your beloved demokrooks suffering yet another beat down at the hands of we the people?

What's that?

You can't offer an opinion until the regime tells you what it is?

But ... I already knew that.

Most races where somebody gets a year head start end up with that guy winning. That's the case here, and with that head start came unlimited donation totals, which were also the case.

The guy who had just 4 weeks and never had unlimited donations fell short, at the bank and at the ballot. This is a surprise, how?

So is it fine with you that Walker broke the law, held up the investigation into his law breaking until after the recall, had the Koch Brothers giving him millions of dollars to BS the people of Wisconsin with campaign ads twenty-four-seven, used his position to shut up those who were in the know about what he had done, annd what he was lying about, and then managed to deceive those voters in Wisconsin who would have voted him out if they had known he is a law breaking crook in advance?

I'm quite sure, if the Dem. had had equal time to ampaign, and all of the money coming in from corrupt Koch polluters, things may well have ended up quite differently. But, The FIX was already in, annd this wasn't an election, it was a RECALL, because most people in Wisconsin wanted him out, and manny were duped about who he is, and didn't show up to vote...or got worn down with the entire mess.

But I'm sure you don't care about the little people, getting totally screwed by the wealthy, greedy and corrupt pigs, right?

After the union workers made all of the concessions Walker said he needed them to make, to balance his "Budget" and then lied about the actual budget, lied about so called budget successes, lied about job creation, then turned right around and screwed all of the Middle Class Union workers after they gave up everything he asked from them, annd destroyed their right to negotiate for decent pay, decent working conditions, decent retirement, health care, etc., etc., etc.,!

Nothing but pure Repiglican greed, lies and corruption, taking from the Middle Class, and giving more to the wealthy.

Same ol' Repiglican game I've been watching my whole life.

Earth to gayle, hello gayle, open your eyes and come back down. I have not said anything Walker so cool the rant, quit typing and take a second to just comprehend what you are reading. Lefty idiots have been telling us the recall was inevitable and the people of WI hated Walker. I have always said, "We will see". Then it gets closer to the time and we see the lefty idiots start to prepare their excuses weeks ahead of time. Your only excuse for being blatantly wrong is that Walker raised a ton of money. If that is your excuse (along with the idea that Reps would not change their vote) then how do you explain Walker having a higher percentage of votes this time than last? It is because some lefties decided to leave well enough alone, or they decided Walker was the right person, or they decided the recall was an abuse of power and should not have been done.

Would you feel better if Walker walked into the room where combative Dems are and state "I won!" Maybe then they would be expected to shut up like Obama expected the Reps to shut up.

My prediction was that there would be a recall.

Additionally, If someone is stupid enoough that they can't understand the difference in the psychological power of months upon months of Walker spending thirty million dollars in BS propaganda, 24/7, and the attitude of many in Wisconsin, that recalls should be used only for proven criminal activity, (Which is coming, I believe, in time) which is what the exit polls showed, voters had grown tired of the whole thing, and the plight of an opposing candidate that only had a few weeks, and very little money, then who cares what you might think, about anything.

Personally, I think your thinking processes are always skewed, as the most intelligent people on this forum, seem to agree.

Walker, having lost the majority, can't be considered a huge favorite of the state, IMO, and as time goes by, I will predict, right now, hhis name will end up being MUD in the state of Wisconsin, because there is plenty of ugly news coming out on Walker.

We shall see.....then, when this prediction comes true, you'll be saying you were against Walker's policies from the start, just like you do now, about W., and his obvious out of sight spending, borrowing, law breaking and incompetence.

Let's not forget, when it comes to correct predictions, your scores are pitiful, and your opinions are funny. YOU thought W. was SMART!
