Newly-released documents show prosecutors are looking at potentially criminal activity by Walker, despite his denials and other claims.
Election law experts and Wisconsin's elections board have filed briefs calling Judge Randa’s decision halting the Walker criminal probe “erroneous” and “completely unmoored" from U.S. Supreme Court precedent.

Wisconsin Club for Growth has launched a new legal volley in its well-funded effort to thwart the state’s John Doe campaign finance probe.
