Special prosecutor asks Wisconsin Supreme Court to reconsider Walker decision

MADISON — A special prosecutor has asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to reconsider its decision ending an investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's recall campaign.

Online court records show Francis Schmitz filed a motion Tuesday with the court to reconsider its decision from last month and put the ruling on hold in the meantime.

Part of the court's decision ordered Schmitz to destroy evidence he had collected during the investigation.

Schmitz's actual motion was under seal pending a determination by the court as to whether it should be made public.

The filing is a sign that Schmitz may ultimately ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision that determined the activity being investigated was not illegal and stopped the probe.
