UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  We could soon learn a little bit more about the state's John Doe investigation into the recall elections against Governor Scott Walker and G-O-P senators. Yesterday federal appeals Judge Diane Wood ordered the release of about 14 pages of documents that the Wisconsin Club for Growth wanted to keep secret.

It's not known when the records will come out -- or what they might disclose. They concern the group's lawsuit which sought to strike down the John Doe probe for violating the group's free-speech rights. Milwaukee District Judge Rudolph Randa said he agreed with the group, and he halted the probe twice this spring. State prosecutors continue to appeal the latest move. Over 250 pages of documents have already been released from the John Doe -- including a prosecutor's theory that Walker and two G-O-P operatives illegally coordinated with a dozen conservative groups to run the recall campaigns as a joint effort. Walker strongly denies it, and the prosecutor later clarified it was nothing more than conjecture.
