The Journal Sentinel reported on Monday that the probe grew out of leads discovered during an earlier investigation of aides who served Gov. Scott Walker (R) during his time as Milwaukee County executive. That case ended with six people convicted on criminal charges.

The current probe was initiated by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office, but now involves multiple counties. Francis Schmitz, a former assistant U.S. attorney who was once considered by President George W. Bush for the post of U.S. attorney for the eastern district of Wisconsin, is now leading the case as a special prosecutor, according to the Journal Sentinel.

"It's now spread to at least five counties," a source told the paper. The same source said that Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf had been investigating "all over the place."

The case apparently opened in February 2012. And according to the Journal Sentinel, the investigation is looking at a number of issues, including the recall races, a current legislative leader, and the 2012 gubernatorial recall contest between Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Walker is so slimy. Between being in bed with the Kochs and all his illegal maneuvers he'll be lucky to be able to run for dogwatcher soon.

And yet still MORE trouble for the right wing Walker.

Not a good week for the tea party again.

It's hard to win races from a jail cell.

And easy to win races when you commit voter fraud, like Walker did.

It's easy to win when you do what people voted you to do. Union thugs are such sore LOSERS!

I think Walker has used up most of his nine lives. He's stuck this time.

Corruption should only be illegal if committed by the Democrats.

I think the law is finally catching up to Scott Walker.
