Madison, WI - On Thursday, Governor Scott Walker (R) found himself in the center of an out of state scheme to launder millions of fundraising money to a Wisconsin group from out of state conservative groups, which later ended up in his recall election campaign, according to Wisconsin prosecutors. A federal judge received about 288 unredacted pages, including one e-mail from Walker indicating his personal involvement in the scheme from a John Doe ongoing investigation that exposed the scheme. 
The documents confirmed that Walker was in the center of the alleged illegal fundraising scheme to coordinate millions of funds into his campaign. Walker says, what his recall campaign engaged in 2011-12 to collect funds to get him reelected was not illegal.
Walker posted on his Facebook account, "The accusation of any wrongdoing written in the complaint by the office of a partisan Democrat District Attorney by me or by my campaign is categorically false. In fact two judges, in both state and federal courts, have ruled that no laws were broken.
This is nothing more than a partisan investigation with no basis in state law. It's time for the prosecutors to acknowledge both judge's orders to end this investigation.
Now my Democratic opponents will use these false accusations to distract from the issues important to the voters of Wisconsin."

Scott Walker, Republican Presidential hopeful now out of the race and reelection bid for Governor in jeopardy in Wisconsin? Latest scandal exposed his personal involvement to bring in millions from out of state conservative groups in alleged illegal fundraising scheme during recall election in 2011-12.
