DarthDoyle's Dollars Cost Dearly


The beginning of the end?

Kenosha businessman Dennis Troha late Friday abruptly withdrew from the $808 million tribal casino project on which he's invested years and millions of dollars.

The surprise move came as the FBI was investigating the thousands in campaign donations the Troha family has made to Gov. Jim Doyle.

Criminal defense lawyer Franklyn Gimbel, who is representing Troha in the matter, declined to discuss specifics of the investigation, though he confirmed that he has talked to federal prosecutors on behalf of Troha.

"Right now it's a sensitive discussion that I'm having, and that's the end of the story," Gimbel said before Friday's announcement that Troha was out of the deal. "The discussions are with the U.S. attorney."

Frankie Gimbel's one of the best. Any one of his HATS cost more than my car. This is no longer a garden-variety 'sniff-about' by any means.

Mr. Fitzgerald will have more time on his hands now that he is done with the Libby prosecution. Isn't he involved with the Doyle administration investigation?
