A.G. Van Hollen’s office declined to help with secret investigation of current, former Walker aides

John Doe investigations are secret proceedings in which witnesses can be subpoenaed and compelled to testify under oath about potential criminal matters and are forbidden from talking publicly about the case. Sources said prosecutors have been looking into whether county staffers were doing political work while on the clock and failing to do county jobs.

Second topic in story’s even bigger: state wants to withdraw Walker aide’s affidavit about why some employees were exempted from collective bargaining law.  Withdrawal would prevent depositions about truthfulness of claims Cynthia Archer made on behalf Walker Administration.
