From Dan Bice at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Details of the secret investigation are sketchy, but it is clear the Milwaukee County district attorney’s office is investigating charges that Wisconsin Right to Life offered rewards for volunteers who signed up sympathetic voters in the recall races. Several people familiar with the investigation said subpoenas were being distributed “like candy.”

This comes on top of the yearlong John Doe investigation into possible political activity by former and current aides to Gov. Scott Walker.

Another day of bad news for Gov. Walker.
