As the gentle reader is aware, there is a second John Doe investigation, commonly referred to Son of Doe, which is looking at the dark money being laundered by right wing front groups as well as possible illegal collaboration between these groups, Scott Walker's campaign, various Republican legislators and WISGOP.
Now we might want to add a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice to that list.
A friend of Cog Dis alerted me to a pdf regarding an open records request that had been done by an unknown person or persons. The pdf is 117 pages long and consists of emails to and from various members of Scott Walker's gubernatorial staff. Here is a link to the Scribd download I created.
In the emails, there are a few names one might recognize, such as Michael Brickman, who worked for Walker's campaign, although he was known as Rich in Retail then. Now he is Walker's Education Policy Assistant. In other words, the liaison between Walker and Scott Jensen.
On page 37, there is an email from one Paul Behling to Scott Matejov, Assistant to the Governor and Deputy Chief of Staff for External Operations. The email was sent on Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 2:58 pm to Matejov's official government email.
Here is a screen capture of it with the first paragraph of the email:

As the reader can easily see, Behling is in Big Energy and is trying to schmooze Matejov to get a piece of the action. Even that early into Walker's reign, the feeding frenzy was in full force.
But that's not even the most interesting part.
The rest of that page is consists of Behling asking for a job, or at least help getting a job.
But at the bottom of this page is a note which apparently is supposed to be a sort of name-dropping reference regarding the work he did for the campaign of David "Chokehold" Prosser. Read it closely several times. It is simply jaw dropping in what he says:

Again, just to drive the point home, that's an admission of collaboration between Prosser's campaign and the third party, dark money groups. It is also an admission of collaboration between Walker's campaign, the third party groups and WISGOP.
I should also not that attached to Behling's email was a copy of a letter from Prosser to Behling, thanking him for his work as Prosser's Waukesha County Coordinator. Not top of the food chain in a campaign, but not the bottom either.
This is the kind of things that Ed Fallone and Mike Maistelman had talked to me about for my article in the Shepherd Express nearly two years ago.
Now if a loud-mouthed union thug blogger can find this stuff, can you even imagine what the professionals either on a local or federal level, could find? No wonder these guys are running scared.
ADDENDUM: Since I know that some of you will be looking through the pdf before I can do further work on it, check out pages 51-53 and the emails between Steve Einhorn and Matejov. Einhorn is the guy who took Bradley Foundation money to put up the racist billboards aimed at voter suppression. He was also involved with a pay for play deal with Walker's administration as well.
