A Conversation with the Wall Street Journal’s Paul Gigot

Paul Gigot and his newspaper helped shine a national spotlight on one of the darkest chapters in Wisconsin’s history. The Pulitzer Prize-winning Editorial Page Editor of the Wall Street Journal is the keynote speaker Wednesday evening for the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty’s Annual Gala in Milwaukee. Gigot will detail the Wall Street Journal’s coverage of Wisconsin’s abusive John Doe investigations in his address, “John Doe: Rogue Prosecutors, Speech Police and Winning!”

Gigot sat down with Empower Wisconsin Tuesday for a conversation about the the predawn raids, the government spying, the chilling of speech these secret probes wrought — and the courage it took to fight back against the prosecutors and speech cops who pursued them.

Paul Gigot is our guest today on Power Up!
