MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Supreme Court has granted three prosecutors’ request to join a case challenging an investigation into Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign.
Five prosecutors were investigating whether Walker’s 2012 recall campaign illegally coordinated with outside groups. Special prosecutor Francis Schmitz eventually took over the probe on their behalf. The Supreme Court halted the investigation this summer and declared Schmitz lacked any standing to appeal.
Three of the original prosecutors — John Chisholm of Milwaukee, Ismael Ozanne of Madison and Larry Nelson of Dodgeville — filed a motion last month seeking to join the case, which would allow them standing to appeal.
The high court granted the request on Tuesday.
