Gov. Walker stays silent

Gov. Scott Walker won’t say whether he, his attorneys or any staff members have been contacted in a growing, secret criminal investigation into a variety of state issues.

Pressed three times on the matter, Walker said Monday that he wouldn’t be distracted by questions on the John Doe investigation, which he called a “sidebar issue.”

“In terms of a lot of the questions regarding that issue, I really don’t have a lot to say,” Walker said during a visit to Beechwood Sales and Service in New Berlin. “I’m going to stay focused, as I am today, on helping the people of this state create more jobs, create more opportunity and balance the budget, as we have.”
