The Latest: Prosecutor reacts to ruling on Walker probe

Posted:

The prosecutor leading an investigation into whether Republican Gov. Scott Walker's recall campaign illegally coordinated with conservative groups says he's disappointed with a state Supreme Court decision halting the probe.

The high court ruled Thursday that campaign finance law doesn't prohibit such coordination.

Prosecutor Francis Schmitz said in an email to The Associated Press that it's unfortunate people won't get a public discussion of the facts. He said he wasn't given a chance to respond to what he says was a campaign of misinformation about the investigation since the Supreme Court refused to hold oral arguments.

He declined comment on whether he may ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the ruling.
