Barrett wants Walker John Doe emails released
MADISON — The recall election is June 5th — just two weeks and one day away. Monday, May 21st, the candidates for governor exchanged jabs over the John Doe investigation. Tom Barrett wants Scott Walker to release information, while Walker calls that request a sign of desperation.
There is no evidence that Walker is directly involved in criminal activity, but Barrett says the revelations and subsequent charges against some of Walker’s top aides while he served as Milwaukee’s County Executive raise serious questions that Barrett says should be answered before voters in Wisconsin take to the polls.
Barrett demands that Governor Walker release all information related to the John Doe investigation – including more than 1,000 emails that were sent through a secret internet system set up near Walker’s office when he was serving as Milwaukee’s County Executive.
“Governor Walker must release these e-mails to the public because the people have a right to know before the election,” Barrett said.
