Governor Scott Walker says his office has turned over thousands of e-mails to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office. Walker, at an event in Waukesha, says he stands ready to meet personally with the district attorney, but a date for that to actually happen will be set by the DA’s office. “We’ll certainly make it dependent upon the people looking into this,” he says. “We’ll leave it up to them.”

“There are literally thousands of e-mails that our campaign has handed over,” he says. The meeting is the “logical next step” Walker says, in the year-long John Doe investigation into whether Walker aides campaigned worked on his gubernatorial campaign while he was county executive. “For more than twenty months they’ve actually been in a process where they’ve looked at information regarding this issue. For more than a year our campaign has voluntarily provided information regarding this issue.
Walker says he had a “clear, defined, expressed policy” against aides doing campaign work on the public dime – and notes that former aide Darlene Wink resigned after it was revealed she violated that policy.
