An assistant to the federal judge who ordered a halt to the state's secret investigation into possible illegal campaign coordination between Gov. Scott Walker's campaign and wingnut groups is married to a lawyer for Walker's campaign - which could be grounds for a judge to step down from a case. [...]
Walker's campaign paid Biskupic's law firm $86,000 last year, according to a recent campaign finance report. Walker's campaign is also one of the targets in the John Doe probe, according to court filings.
According to the federal Code of Conduct for Judicial Employees, employees working for federal judges should not perform any official duties in any matter in which a spouse has an interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding.
