Putting and end to the over two year John doe investigation into misconduct in Scott Walker's Milwaukee County Executive office, District Attorney John Chisolm filed a letter of closure that ended the investigation last week, according to Charles Benson, a reporter who broke this story just moments ago.
The two year investigation, prompted by Governor Scott Walker, ended with six charges against 3 former Milwaukee county employees. Speculation by Democrats, including the head of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Mike Tate, proclaimed that Walker would end his term in jail.
The accusations by Tate and others in the Democratic Party have now been proven false. The proclamation by Chisolm's office assures that nothing was found to link Walker to the inappropriate behavior of staff members, nor any inappropriate behavior by Walker himself.
During the recall effort by state Democrats and union leaders, they used this issue to try to oust Walker. The effort failed with Governor Walker beating Mayor Tom Barrett by a much wider margin than the 2010 election. Barrett also made wild accusations of misconduct by Walker himself.
