Walker suggested the dastardly deeds could be uncovered during a pending investigation to be conducted by Chicago lawyers and then the DA's office here could follow up. Walker apparently feels that the Chicago lawyers are the big boys and the local prosecutors are some what lesser lawyers. Chisholm did not take kindly to Walker's statements or implied insults.
Chisholm said Walker's public comments were inappropriate and could compromise a potential criminal investigation.
"It could create grave concerns, to say the least," Chisholm said. "You can muck it up pretty easy, if you don't go about it in the proper way."
Walker presented no indication that he has any actual evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Instead, it appears he is simply suggesting criminal activity by a relatively few, easily-identifiable individuals who received or were involved with the pension buybacks.
Much of the buyback activity occurred while Walker was in office, after he promised to clean up the pension mess.
Can Walker be charged with criminal irresponsibility? He would face ever so many counts.
