Wisconsin Club for Growth sues to stop Doe II

According to the Journal-Sentinel, Wisconsin Club for Growth has filed a lawsuit to stop the "son of John Doe" investigation. Apparently the Club for Growth and other conservative organizations that have been bringing out-of-state money into our election processes are growing nervous about the investigation and what it may uncover. Someone needs to remind them that "freedom" doesn't include the freedom to break the laws.

In a filing with the U.S. District Court in Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Club for Growth and its director, Eric O'Keefe, argued the probe violates group members' rights to free speech, free assembly and equal protection under the law.

The filing asked the court to enjoin prosecutors and Reserve Judge Gregory A. Peterson from continuing the John Doe probe, relieve O'Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth from having to cooperate with it and order prosecutors to pay them compensatory damages for violating their constitutional rights.
