Cindy Archer, a former aid to Governor Scott Walker (WI-R), has filed a lawsuit against Milwaukee County District Attorney, John Chisholm, for the early morning raid of her home on September 14, 2011. Archer was subjected to numerous threats, including her dogs being shot.
Investigators swarmed her home and took reams of records and computers all with a warning that she was subjected to a gag order that forbid her from telling anyone about the investigation.
No charges were ever filed against Archer or anyone else from the search and seizure of her home and records.
This story follows an earlier report of how the prosecutors in the John Doe II case were allowed by a friendly court to gather and view the “e-mails, phone and text records” of 17 individuals for 19 months. Some of these individuals may still not know that their communications were not just documented but read by these investigators.
