Walker once again refused to say whether as county executive he knew of or used a secret email system set up in his office to avoid public scrutiny.And:
On Monday he called it a "slippery slope" to answer specifics about the more than 27,000 records released last week, because "once you start on one thing, then there's hundreds of questions on each of those."
He would not say whether he favored releasing all the documents that the Journal Sentinel and other outlets are seeking to obtain.So far, six people, three of them former Walker aides, have been convicted in the investigation of his time as Milwaukee County executive. But other than claiming that he's running a clean ship as governor, Walker won't talk about that investigation.
Last week, thousands of emails from the investigation were released, including racist jokes emailed in his office. About those emails, Walker now says they were "stupid things that people said along the way."
"Obviously anybody that says something that's out of character with who I am and the people that surround me would concern me. I would guess that any office or any business that had 27,000 emails (released) would probably have a few that people would be less than pleased with out there."So he was concerned about those emails because people were "less than pleased with" them. Makes sense. And it probably explains why he doesn't want to talk about, let alone release, whatever other emails might be out there related to the investigation.
