MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today after Governor Walker signed into a law a bill that will exempt political crimes from Wisconsin’s John Doe law:

“Given the fact that Governor Walker and his friends have been investigated under Wisconsin’s John Doe law – including six of Walker’s former aides who were guilty of political crimes – it is no surprise that the governor would be in a rush to sign the Corrupt Politician Protection Act.

“We may never know if there are political crooks popping champagne corks today knowing that their crimes will now be very difficult to investigate and even harder to prosecute. Combined with bills passed this week that will turn Wisconsin’s non-partisan government watchdog into a partisan lapdog and open the floodgates for even more corporate money in our elections, Governor Walker and his fellow Republicans have sent strong signals that Wisconsin is open for corruption.”
