Oxymoronic Statement of Considerable Truth
The Walker Trust is an open measure to defend a blameless culprit who is clearly misunderstood as a untargeted victim in the open secret of the John Doe Investigation. Walker has maintained partial silence to clearly indicate he is a misunderstood Governor who maintains that it is a false fact that Walker is not an active target in a victimless crime.
Gov. Scott Walker announced Friday that he has set up a legal defense fund to help pay expenses incurred as a result of the John Doe investigation of activities during his time as county executive.
That is a polite stab of non-partisan journalism to subtly suggest that the resulting determination could well be a suggestion that Walker has been disqualified as a non-target.
But state election law makes clear that a candidate can set up one of these funds in limited circumstances.
“Wisconsin Statutes permit a state government official who is being investigated for or
charged with a violation of campaign finance laws or prohibited election practices to establish a ‘legal defense fund’ for expenditures supporting or defending the candidate while that person is being investigated for, or charged with, or convicted of a violation of those chapters,” says a summary of the statute provided by the Government Accountability Board.
