Groups ask Supreme Court to stay out of John Doe

By Todd Richmond Associated Press MADISON - The Wisconsin Supreme Court should stay out of a dispute over subpoenas in a secret investigation into possible illegal coordination between conservative organizations and recent recall campaigns, a liberal group said Monday. One Wisconsin Now sent the court a letter saying two groups involved in the investigation - Wisconsin Club for Growth and Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the state's chamber of commerce - helped get the court's four conservative-leaning justices elected. The two groups have spent a combined $7.3 million to support Annette Ziegler, David Prosser, Michael Gableman and Patience Roggensack's campaigns since 2007, the letter said.
