Wisconsin John Doe whistleblower dead, police claim suicide

Milwaukee Journal SentinalFormer aldermanic candidate Michael Lutz died early Sunday morning of an apparent suicide, according to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Lutz, 44, a former Milwaukee police officer, suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound “while in the presence of Menomonee Falls tactical officers after a brief tactical situation,” the medical examiner’s office said in a release issued Sunday.

Legal Insurrection has more background information.

So he commits suicide "after a brief tactical situation"? I don't buy it. The circumstances stink. The timing stinks.

Let's bear in mind the events of the past week or so:
1) Judicial Watch uncovers emails proving IRS targeted donors to conservative organizations.
2) Links between Lerner and the Wisconsin John Doe investigation are discovered.
3) President Obama puts a new rule in place requiring IGs to ask agency heads for permission before engaging in wiretaps or grand jury investigations (ie, criminal investigations).
4) Emails linking IRS Chief Counsel Wilkins to the donor targeting effort email.
5) Wilkins is known to have met with Obama for almost an entire day, just a day or two before he changes IRS policy on donor audits.

When you look at the chronology, Lutz is one end of a thread that may now lead all the way up to Obama. And I'm supposed to believe this was a suicide when he was surrounded by the same people conducting unconstitutional midnight raids on political opponents that he exposed?

I don't buy it. Someone's nervous and cleaning up loose ends.
