John Mercure

John Mercure of Channel 4 TV in Milwaukee ran a really powerful investigative piece on Wednesday. He staked out a house where men showed up who allegedly had expected a teenage girl to be home alone. The men allegedly had been communicating with the girl - really Mercure - over the Internet in a sexual nature.

Anyway, Mercure in a radio interview on Thursday stated that Channel 4 purposely did the stakeout in Waukesha County. Why? Because of Paul. Several months ago, Channel 4 did the exact same story in Milwaukee County.

But Mercure said the Milwaukee County DA wouldn't prosecute. Mercure praised Paul and said that Channel 4 believes that Paul is far more likely to prosecute such offenses, basically because of his strong record as a prosecutor.
