Attorney General’s Office Not Involved with Civil Proceedings in Ronald Johnson Civil Case

    who is handling it? This press release is a very funny CYA — somebody running for something?
    I saw it on KELO last night as well — at the end of the story they said something like we’ve talked with the AG’s office many times and they want it to be clear that they aren’t handling this matter. I guess I wouldn’t want to be accused of handling it either. Not a good move. But still leaves me with my original question — who is handling it?
