Walker responds to charges in investigation

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker said he’s confident his integrity will remain intact after a secret investigation that has already resulted in charges against some former staffers while he was Milwaukee County executive.

Two women on that staff were charged Thursday with engaging in political fundraising while at work.


Two other former Walker associates were charged Jan. 5 with embezzling more than $60,000 from veterans and their families. Another man is charged with child enticement charges, evidence of which was allegedly discovered while investigating one of the others.

At an appearance at a Milwaukee-area business Friday, Walker said he doesn’t feel investigators are targeting him. He says he’s always made it clear to his staff that they were prohibited from political activities while on the job.
