MADISON - Governor Scott Walker says he remains ``absolutely'' confident that he is not a subject of a criminal investigation involving former aides in his Milwaukee County office.
Walker said in a Monday interview that none of the evidence revealed for the first time in court last week would suggest that he's a target of the investigation.
Emails discussed at the sentencing last week of former Walker deputy chief of staff Kelly Rindfleisch showed that members of Walker's 2010 gubernatorial campaign held daily meetings with his county executive office staff.
Walker says he had no knowledge of county workers doing campaign work while on the clock for their county job.
He says if he had known what Rindfleisch was doing, he would have taken action to stop it.

LAC DU FLAMBEAU - In Vilas County the courts have a new option for treating drug and alcohol offenders, instead of putting them behind bars.
Today the new Wellness Court was named in Lac du Flambeau. Circuit court judge Neal Neilsen and Tribal Court Judge Gary Smith will work together to help those involved with drugs and alcohol get the treatment they need.
"A traditional court would, more than likely sentence the person to jail or prison, and we've seen studies where that just doesn't work anymore. We need to get creative," said Lac du Flambeau Tribal Chief Judge, Gary Smith.
