Secret Investigation into Walker Aides Closes
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A secret investigation into Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's former aides and associates has closed without any charges being filed against Walker.
Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced Friday that the so-called John Doe investigation ended last week.
Six people have been charged with crimes stemming from the investigation into activity in the Milwaukee County executive's office when Walker held that position. Four former Walker aides and a campaign donor have been convicted on charges ranging from theft to misconduct in office.
Walker says he's glad the John Doe investigation into his former aides and associates is over.
A statement from the Governor reads:
"I am glad the process has been completed. As many may remember, this entire matter began when we asked the District Attorney to look into concerns we had with respect to Operation Freedom. We appreciate the effort that was undertaken and to bring appropriate matters to justice."
