MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) vehemently denied a new report stating he is the target of a criminal corruption probe on Saturday.
Speaking to reporters after a meet-and-greet with volunteers at his campaign’s Wauwatosa headquarters, Walker said neither he nor his lawyers have received a letter stating that he is being sought out in the investigation, which is focused on Walker’s time as Milwaukee County executive. The allegations range from embezzlement to doing campaign work with taxpayer money.
The latest questions arose in after a Friday Facebook post by David Shuster of Take Action News. “According to government lawyers familiar with a Milwaukee criminal corruption probe, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is now a ‘target’ of the investigation,” wrote Shuster.
