In a somewhat stunning development, the same federal judge who issued an injunction against the infamous “John Doe” investigation, only later to be overturned by the appeals court, has just ordered the State of Wisconsin, in another lawsuit, to stop enforcing anti-coordination campaign finance laws.

The full decision will be embedded soon....

We previously reported how a panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals restored Wisconsin’s Voter I.D. law for the November election.

The opponents of the law sought full “en banc” review by the entire Court of Appeals. That request was denied by a divided court (h/t Ann Althouse):

Yesterday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld the state’s voter ID laws in two separate opinions that could drastically affect the rules governing the polling place come November. Although a federal court previously ruled Wisconsin’s laws to be unconstitutional, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen told the press that yesterday’s separate rulings...

The decision was just posted here. Also embedded at bottom of post.

The collective bargaining law was passed in early 2011, and led to protests, and even a takeover of the State Capitol building. For Wisconsin, the union pushback was a long, strange trip, as we documented exhaustively:

Mary Burke Ad

Democrat Mary Burke, who’s running against Scott Walker for governor in Wisconsin this year, is apparently unaware that the John Doe scandal has been thoroughly debunked.

Why else would she run an ad like this? Maybe she doesn’t care about the truth.

The big breaking news in the “John Doe” anti-Conservative Wisconsin investigation is that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals released previously sealed court exhibits detailing accusations made at the time the Wisconsin prosecutors commenced the proceeding.

So you get screaming headlines such as these:

Elizabeth Warren repeatedly says she “is” not running for President.

Wink, wink.

For someone who “is” not running, and who takes only single digits in national polling (because she “is” not running), Warren made a pretty good showing in a presidential straw poll at the Democratic state convention in Wisconsin, as reported...
