Newly unsealed audio contradicts Walker aide’s description of raid

MADISON — Newly unsealed audio made by law enforcement officers as they raided the home of a former longtime aide to Governor Scott Walker contradicts her description of how the search warrant was executed.

The audio file was submitted to federal court in response to a lawsuit Walker’s former aide Cindy Archer filed against prosecutors who led the John Doe investigation.

Archer previously said police officers screamed at her, threw a search warrant at her and did not tell her of her constitutional rights during the 2011 raid.

But an officer can be heard reading Archer the warrant and her rights. Archer’s attorney said he would issue a statement later.

    32 minutes of audio crushes yet another beloved and fabricated Republican/Tea talking point. Pretty sad how many people are so conquered by mainstream media and liars like Walker the intimidated.

    There has been so much defense of the people searched in the John Doe investigation, yet so many others have their Rights violated who they dismiss outright.

    Wisconsin’s ongoing support for the “corruption, cronyism, and sleaze” that is the Wisconsin GOP is stunning.
