Scott Walker negotiating John Doe 2 Deal? There’s no honor among thieves!

This guy is toast...if the rumor is true. As spelled out in the Wall Street Journal:
jsonline: "We've learned that Steven Biskupic, who represents Friends of Scott Walker, has been negotiating with Wisconsin special prosecutor Francis Schmitz to settle the state's investigation. The understandable concern among the direct targets of the John Doe is that Mr. Biskupic will cut a deal that would exonerate Mr. Walker while wresting concessions from some of Mr. Walker's allies," the editorial reads. "...Sounds like Mr. Walker has to decide whose side he's on — his own, or the larger principles he claims to represent."
Scott Walker’s very visible presidential aspirations are revealing just what kind of guy he is, and it ain't pretty. That was obvious from the kind of people he surrounded himself with.
Gov. Scott Walker's campaign may be negotiating with prosecutors as part of a secret investigation into the 2012 recall campaigns involving him and other candidates, according to an anonymously sourced opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal.

Until now, the conservative editorial page of the national newspaper has defended Walker … But in the editorial published Tuesday night, the newspaper attacked Walker, alleging that his attorney was negotiating with authorities at a time when the prosecutors have had their investigation halted by a federal judge.
It’s time to leave a few friends behind…   
A source with knowledge of the probe told the Journal Sentinel that other parties caught up in it are worried that the attorney for the Walker campaign, Steven Biskupic, is not advocating for an aggressive enough approach with prosecutors.

Um, John... that's the Journal Sentinel, not the Wall Street Journal.
