The 'secret probe' refers to a 'John Doe' investigation which allows investigators to issue subpoenas and gather testimony from witnesses without revealing the probe's target. -- JPS/RSN



A criminal investigation has shaken Wisconsin political circles and touched off speculation that Gov. Scott Walker may be in its sights, according to numerous reports.

Wisconsin's Republican governor rose to national prominence after his election in 2010 based on his public confrontations with unions over collective bargaining rights.

The so-called "John Doe" investigation is a secret proceeding in which witnesses can be subpoenaed and required to testify under oath, but are forbidden from talking publicly about the probe or its target.

Walker, whose campaign has hired a lawyer, has said in the past that he has not been personally contacted by investigators. He appeared Monday on MSNBC's Morning Joe but was not asked about the probe.

Former state appeals court judge Neal Nettesheim, who is overseeing the investigation, announced Friday that Walker's chief spokesperson, Cullen Werwie, has been granted immunity in the probe. Also granted immunity was Rose Ann Dieck, a retired teacher and Milwaukee County Republican activist
