U.S. JUDGE ENDS WISCONSIN WITCH HUNT
By Hans von Spakovsky

two orders—one of which termed the prosecutors’ appeal of his decision as “frivolous”—Randa ordered local prosecutors to
“cease all activities related to the investigation” and to return all of the records and documents they had seized from dozens of
conservative advocacy organizations.
