TRIGGER WARNING: Article has material which calls into question the integrity of Democrat politicians in Wisconsin.
For John, BLUF: There is a reason to vote people out of office beyond incompetence and that is lack of integrity. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Professor Elizabeth Price Foley seems to be the InstaPundit's go to guy regarding the John Doe case in Milwaukee, instituted by Democrat DA John Theodore Chisholm. In today's episode she delves more deeply into the question of who leaked the "pre-dawn paramilitary-style raid of the home of Cindy Archer". Yes, this so secret you can't even tell your mother or your lawyer raid made the newspaper, the same day.
Well, it is unlikely Cindy Archer leaked to the paper and we have the admission of Reporter Patrick Marley that he was on the front lawn of Ms Archer during the raid. Apparently he didn't get the tip, based on Reporter Jason Stein, who actually wrote the article, saying he got the leak.
The thing about leaks is you get prosecuted (persecuted?) based on how the Government feels about you. Ask Scooter Libby.♠
We know that leaking a Warrant prior to its execution is a Class I Felony in Wisconsin. So, does it appear as though DA John Theodore Chisholm leaked the Warrant, but is home free because there is no one to go after him, or does it appear as though DA John Theodore Chisholm realizes there was a leak but is unwilling to see justice done in this case, presumably because he thinks that Ms Cindy Archer et al are the scum of the earth and therefore don't deserve justice in this issue of leaking. I am going with "C"—All of the Above.
Even if Ms Archer is guilty of something, and it appears she isn't, this whole investigation doesn't rise to the protections of the Star Chamber and is an affront to the rights of Englishmen, as was won on Runnymede 800 years ago this year.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
