Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced on Friday he will be meeting with Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm regarding a John Doe investigation the attorney is leading into some of the Governor's former staffers.
The investigation suggests the governor's inner circle systematically avoided campaign laws and practiced illegal campaign fundraising, reported the Wisconsin State Journal.
On Tuesday, the county DA charged two former employees, one with four felony charges of misconduct in public office and another with two misdemeanor counts of political solicitation, the journal reported.
Two others have been charged with embezzlement, while another was charged of child enticement
A week ago, Walker announced he did not think the investigation targeted him directly, but the governor could be facing a recall election. The investigation is in its 20th month and Walker maintained his campaign has always cooperated in providing needed information.
I have already said that I would be happy to sit down with the people looking into these issues and answer any additional questions they may have. To make that point clear, last year, my representatives voluntarily contacted Mr. Chisholm's office to arrange a time to discuss any outstanding issues, Walker said. I will be voluntarily meeting with Mr. Chisholm.
In November 2010, Walker, a conservative Republican won the Wisconsin gubernatorial election, defeating Tom Barret with 52 percent of the vote.
Last month Democrats in the state issued 1 million votes to recall the governor.
