Gov. Walker Sets Up Legal-Defense Fund

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….

Several election lawyers said creation of the defense fund serves as a tacit acknowledgment that Walker is under investigation for election law violations.

“If you create a legal-defense fund, you are either being investigated, being charged with or have been convicted of a criminal violation of Chapter 11 or Chapter 12,” said retired state election lawyer George Dunst, referring to the statutes dealing with campaign finance and election fraud.
