Democrats Hoping To Use Emails To Embarrass Scott Walker

Secret email system was used by the Wisconsin governor's staffers

|

Some 27,000 emails from a convicted former aide to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker became public Wednesday, shedding light on a past probe of people in the Republican's camp.

They include a message between aides that appears to suggest that Walker was involved with a secret email system used by staffers who "mixed county and campaign business," according to an initial review by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The newspaper called the email "the closest link yet" between the governor and the previously disclosed system.
