Governor Confident He's Not Targeted by Investigation Into Former AidesSubmitted: 11/26/2012
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.
