On October 3, 2016, I asked Can we finally stick a fork in Wisconsin John Doe?. The post came after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by prosecutors from a decision of the Wisconsin Supreme Court shutting down the abusive “John Doe” investigation of conservatives.

Who’s the horror movie figure that keeps on popping up just when you think you’ve killed him?

That’s pretty much the nature of the anti-conservative witch hunt carried out under Wisconsin’s so-called John Doe law. Every time the investigation seemed to be beat, the investigating prosecutors would rear their ugly heads.

We extensively covered the two Wisconsin “John Doe” cases in which prosecutors targeted Scott Walker and conservatives in Wisconsin.

John Doe No. 1 concerned Walker’s time as Milwaukee County Executive.

John Doe No.2 was the more notorious, as a Democratic lead prosecutor unleashed the equivalent of SWAT teams on conservatives, raiding homes, seizing...

The Wisconsin “John Doe” investigations of conservatives has ended in fiasco … for prosecutors.

John Doe No. 1, clearly aimed at Scott Walker, focused on Walker’s time as Milwaukee County Executive. Despite enourmous efforts led by Democratic prosecutor John Chisholm, no evidence of wr...

We have been covering the “John Doe” investigations of Scott Walker and Wisconsin conservatives since January 2014, when it came on our radar after a state court judge quashed certain subpoenas.

The “John Doe” law in Wisconsin is unique in that is sets up an investigative tool which, while nominally under the supervision of a Judge, gives prosecutors wide ranging power to conduct secret investigations.

We have extensively covered the Wisconsin John Doe investigations.

The extremely abbreviated version is that Milwaukee County prosecutor John Chisholm has led two distinct investigations of conservatives in Wisconsin. John Doe No. 1 targeted Scott Walker’s term as Milwaukee County Executive. That case is over, and no wrongdoing by Walker was uncovered.

Welcome to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Wisconsin Democratic Prosecutors:

The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas....
