From the editorial:
Overzealous political associates sometimes get in trouble. The John Doe probe doesn't justify a vote against the governor.I wouldn't have written those lines without a super-secret thumbs-up in disappearing ink from prosecutor John Chisholm. Which, of course, isn't how it happens, so those lines were written on faith that the scandal goes no higher.
If "overzealous" gets extended to more senior aides, or the boss himself, people who stood with Walker will share the fallout, too.
