More Documents Released in Walker Related Probe

The latest batch of documents seized during an investigation into aides of Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive has been released.

County Executive Chris Abele on Friday released a small portion of data taken during the now-closed John Doe probe.

A document titled "War Room" spells out Walker's agenda, issues and key contacts.  The file plots out issues he wanted to highlight, groups he wanted to target and places he wanted to visit.

Under "issues," Walker noted the need to lobby state lawmakers on park matters.

The latest round of released documents doesn't include any emails.  Those are expected at a later date.

Six aides and associates of Walker's were convicted as a result of the probe, of running his gubernatorial campaign in 2010 on county time.  Walker was not charged.

A judge has put on hold a second investigation that grew out of the original one.
