Madison – Officials have offered immunity to a new person in a secret investigation of current and former aides to Gov. Scott Walker going back to his time as Milwaukee County executive, court records show.
An order by an appeals court Friday is the latest sign the investigation is continuing.
A grant of immunity was considered for an unnamed person about four or five weeks ago, according to former Appeals Judge Neal Nettesheim, who is overseeing the John Doe investigation. The person sought to have the immunity grant performed in secret, but Nettesheim determined it had to be done in open court. The person then appealed.
