Wisconsin: Cindy Archer home invasion, Scott Walker probe and media bias

A pre-dawn raid on the home of Cindy Archer a year ago and other conservatives, including the use of battering rams and seizure of computers, has made headline after a great article by David French on NRO.

“As if the home invasion, the appropriation of private property, and the verbal abuse weren’t enough, next came ominous warnings. Don’t call your lawyer. Don’t tell anyone about this raid. Not even your mother, your father, or your closest friends,” French writes.

29 conservative organizations were investigated and all of the subpeonas were thrown out, a judge noting that there was no crime and just free speech.

Charlie Sykes tells Bill Bennett that John Doe investigation led a look into a coordination between the Scott Walker campaign, conservative groups and possible campaign finance violations.

“It’s hard to overstate how tramautic this was…,” Sykes, dtailing that there was a gag order, which Eric O’Keefe finally broke silence and went to the Wall Street Journal to out John Chisolm and the illegal searches he led.

Watchdog.org noted that “Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a front-row seat when the ‘law enforcement action’ went down, noting the journalist was there at the crack of dawn with authorities.

The site quotes:

Daniel Bice, the Journal Sentinel’s investigative columnist who broke several stories in the first John Doe political probe, has vehemently denied that his sources are inside the Milwaukee County DA’s office.

If I started outing my sources, I wouldn’t have very many sources, would I?” Bice said during an online chat with readers in January 2012. He was responding to this question: “Who is illegally leaking information to you from the secret John Doe probe?”

Critics are comparing the incidents to the IRS targeting of conservative and religious groups.
