Really, this is extraordinary. I'm not sure if I've ever heard of a prosecutor making an open records request like this as part of an investigation. And is it really part of an official expedition or has this fishng expedition gone private? For example:
Robles, one of a half-dozen prosecutors handling the John Doe probe, declined to discuss his open records requests to the Walker administration.
"I'm not going to comment on anything," he said.
Robles also wouldn't say why he didn't submit his requests on the Milwaukee County district attorney's office letterhead or provide his job title when seeking the government information. His requests also provide what appears to be a private email account. He did list his official work address and phone number on the letters.
"I'm not going to comment on that," Robles said repeatedly.
It's from his private email and he didn't identify himself? The phrase going rouge springs to mind here. It's possible he couldn't justify an official search so he decided he'd just go snooping on his own. Remember, libs were waiting for the other shoe to drop (a Walker indictment) before the recall election. This request came after June 5th. They will keep looking until they find something.
