MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A judge has altered a previous secret order in the John Doe investigation into alleged campaign funding abuses during the state's recall elections.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said the change was uncovered in a new filing which involves one of four court challenges to the John Doe probe. The charges, the original ruling, and the change order are all sealed for now.
The investigation is being run by the Milwaukee County district attorney's office and special prosecutor Francis Schmitz.
It's privately gathering evidence concerning allegations that Republican candidates in the recall votes of 2011 and '12 illegally worked together with special interest groups on the campaigns.
