Judge to WI Gov. Walker: you’re not off the hook yet

Associated Press:

The judge overseeing the investigation into people who worked for Gov. Scott Walker when he was the Milwaukee County executive said Wednesday that the probe is not complete and remains open.

Walker said Tuesday that he hoped the so-called “John Doe” investigation would end as early as this week. He made the comments in response to a question at a meeting of the Dairy Business Association and said afterward that he was basing his hope on media accounts and a general feeling that the investigation was winding down.

But retired Waukesha County Judge Neal Nettesheim told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home Wednesday that anyone guessing that the probe was coming to an end was engaging in “pure conjecture.”

“The John Doe is not completed,” Nettesheim said. “It is still open.”

That “general feeling that the investigation was winding down” is better known as “wishful thinking.”
