Judge orders emails released in John Doe probe of former Walker aides


MADISON (WKOW) -- An appeals judge has ordered some documents released in the secret, John Doe investigation into illegal campaign activity by former aides and associates of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Judge Patricia Curley ordered personal emails of convicted aide Kelly Rindfleisch to be filed with the appeals court within 15 days. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports other documents include the search warrant used for seizing records from Walker's office when he was Milwaukee County executive.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice is fighting Rindfleisch's argument that the warrants were overly broad.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said the investigation ended February 20, after nearly three years.  The probe started six months before Walker was elected governor.
