WAUSAU - Scott Walker faced a tough crowd at times in Iowa during his failed presidential bid. Now, an undercover video released this week may show those protesters were planted on purpose.
The Journal Sentinel reported the videos show activist Scott Foval bragging about disrupting a Walker rally in Iowa. Those videos were released by conservative activist James O'Keefe.
Foval talks about bringing people out of state into Wisconsin, but doesn't give a reason why.
Some thought the comments could be connected to voter fraud.
Now Wisconsin's Attorney General says he'll look into if any laws were violated.
"We've got to get the complete tapes. Right now, what's been made available are redacted and edited and you don't go forward on a criminal investigation with redacted and edited materials. You've got to see the whole picture," said Schimel.
O'Keefe has edited similar videos in the past, which some say makes the videos not credible.
But Schimel says he's taking the matter seriously to see if Wisconsin's election laws have been violated.
"We're going to take a look. I've got over 25 years in law enforcement as a prosecutor and when a bad guy brags that they're doing something, I'm going to try and go after them," said Schimel.
Other O'Keefe videos may show pro-Clinton supporters talking about disrupting a Trump rally in Chicago.
