Supreme Court Won’t End Probe of Scott Walker’s Recall Campaign

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to end a state investigation into Wis. Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign, rejecting an appeal from a conservative group that says its constitutional rights are being violated.

  • Rebuff leaves the future of the investigation in the hands of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which is considering a separate bid to stop the probe
    • Court-appointed special prosecutor investigating whether Walker, R-Wis., and his operatives violated state campaign-finance laws by coordinating their efforts with Club for Growth during campaign against recall attempt
  • Criminal investigation, on hold during the court fight, might complicate Walker’s potential campaign for president
  • NOTE: The case is O’Keefe v. Chisholm, 14-872.
