WI Court Of Appeals Allowed Walker Probe To Continue

Talk radio right-wingers are claiming that courts have exonerated Walker, but what about the direction from state court that allowed state prosecutors to probe possible violations of state elections laws - - which is what Walker and his funders want quashed in Federal court:

Madison — The Wisconsin Court of Appeals blocked an attempt Thursday to halt a secret investigation into recent recall elections and unsealed some files in the case, revealing Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen last year declined a request to lead the probe after considering the question for nearly five months. 
The unanimous decision by the Madison-based 4th District Court of Appeals panel is a victory for prosecutors and comes just three weeks after they faced a separate setback by the judge overseeing the investigation. That earlier ruling quashed subpoenas to conservative groups supporting Gov. Scott Walker.
