The Wisconsin governor is being accused of illegally coordinating campaign and fundraising activity to fend off 2011 and 2012 recalls against Republicans.

In the documents, which were unsealed by a federal appeals court judge Thursday morning, prosecutors described what they called a “criminal scheme” to circumvent state campaign finance and election laws.

They said the coordinated effort involved conservative groups, Walker, his campaign and top allies of the governor, including R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl.

The prosecutors allege that Walker and those allies raised money and coordinated spending with about a dozen conservative groups during the recall elections.

In the newly released documents, thee prosecutors cite a May 2011 email sent by Walker, he tells prominent national conservative Karl Rove that Johnson would lead coordinated efforts to beat the recall efforts.

    Scott Walker ‘God Told me to be a Felon, steal from taxpayers and illegally reward payola to Karl Rove & the Koch brothers front groups.’ Walker wouldn’t speak to constituents but quickly took this call he thought was from his master David Koch!

      If ‘God told him to be a criminal’ then what can he possibly be charged with?
      Obeying God is now a criminal act?
      Has America really degenerated to that point due to gay marriage and murder of fetuses?
      No wonder the Churchgoer Reich is in such an uproar!
      when God tells you, personally, to do anything, be it feed the hungry, cloth the naked, ensure medical treatment for those in need, help the homeless or even be a Class A Felon Criminal, God expects you to do it!
      If you do not, you are NOT a true servant of God!
      (how Benny came about having so many tax free jet planes!).
