WisconsinWatchdog | Watchdog’s Scariest People of 2015: No. 2

WILL President and General Counsel Rick Esenberg suggests that John Doe Special Prosecutor Fran Schmitz listen to the little voice in his head about when to quit the investigation.

Constitutional law expert Rick Esenberg has often said prosecutors should have a little voice inside their heads telling them when it’s time to quit. Francis Schmitz lacks that little voice.
