Prosecutor Asks Justices to Recuse In Scott Walker Probe Challenge

According to a report by PR Watch, the lead (special) prosecutor of the probe into possible coordination between Governor Scott Walker's campaign and outside groups has asked some Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices to recuse themselves from hearing a challenge to the investigation.

PR Watch Excerpt:
