Former Scott Walker aide Cindy Archer amends John Doe lawsuit complaint


Cindy Archer, a former top official in the Department of Administration under Gov. Scott Walker, no longer claims investigators questioned her during a raid of her Madison home without reading her Miranda rights, according to an amended complaint filed this week in federal court.

But Archer alleges that Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm during the investigation crafted a plan to imprison Gov. Scott Walker and his aides and used the John Doe process to do so.

Archer, who was not charged in an investigation into Walker and his associates, earlier this summer filed a lawsuit against Chisholm for what she described as an investigation motivated by political interests and was carried out in a harassing way.

Earlier this summer, a recording of the raid on Archer's home was released contradicting many claims Archer made in her original suit. In the amended complaint filed Wednesday, Archer removed a complaint that deputies threw a search warrant at her and wouldn't let her leave her home to smoke a cigarette. She also dropped an original claim that she was intimidated into answering questions.
