NOT on the Journal-Sentinel Site: Impeach Chisholm

This is news to everyone on Earth except the editors of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

...The commissioner says the Ethics Commission can help the state Department of Justice in its broadened investigation into the John Doe.

He said Walker, who has the authority to do so, should begin impeachment proceedings against the man who presided over what was commonly referred to around the Milwaukee County DA’s office as the “Walker John Doe.” ...
