With the real possibility, even probability that Scott Walker will be reelected in the recall election on Tuesday, are the Democrats now looking at another strategy to remove him and recapture the Governor’s mansion?
There is a real possibility this is in the works.
On the Young Turks show on Friday, David Shuster claimed it was almost certain that Scott Walker would be indicted in the next few months.
From Crooks and Liars:
On the Young Turks Friday, David Shuster claimed that he is almost certain that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be indicted in the coming months for his role in the numerous scandals floating around his first campaign for governor. Shuster later clarified his claim on the Take Action News Facebook page:
According to lawyers familiar with a Milwaukee criminal corruption probe, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is now a "target" for prosecution.
The legal sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Walker faces "serious legal challenges," including a "possible indictment" regardless of the gubernatorial recall election results on Tuesday.
The investigation began in 2010 when Walker served as Milwaukee County executive.
Six people have been charged, with accusations ranging from campaigning for Walker on government time to embezzlement. 13 other Walker associates have been given immunity from prosecution in exchange for their testimony in the case.
This week, Governor Walker acknolwedged he has now transferred $160,000 from his campaign accounts to a legal defense fund. Mr. Walker confirmed the money is strictly for his own defense and not for any current or former staff.
Lawyers for Governor Walker recently appeared at the Milwaukee courthouse but refused to say why they were there. The lawyers have also refused to comment on the Governor's status in the investigation.
On Tuesday, Wisconsin voters will go to the polls in the state's recall election. Fifteen months ago, Walker set off huge protests at the Capitol when he took aim at unions representing state government workers and passed a law ending many of their rights to collective bargaining.
As we have mentioned earlier on TPN, the real fight is for the Lieutenant Governor’s office. The radical left did not get the candidate they wanted in the Governor’s race, but the Lieutenant Governor’s race.
If Walker were to be indicted or even convicted, he could be forced from office either by resignation or impeachment. If that happened, the Lieutenant Governor would take over. The radical left has the candidate they want running for Lieutenant Governor.
The District Attorney of Milwaukee County is a Democrat. Of course, in Wisconsin, partisan politics would never enter into a criminal investigation now would it?
Of course, if you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Nashville I’d like to sell you.
I would just as soon Abolish all Government and start over.
Believe it or not, many states do have a law on their books that you do not need a driver's license if you do not drive commercial vehicles or a vehicle for hire, and drive on common drive roads and thorough fares.
I do like the Undocumented driver in an undocumented vehicle idea; except, there probably is no Insurance Agent in the world that will sell you car coverage.
