Barrett, Walker bicker over John Doe

Tom Barrett called on Scott Walker today to release thousands of emails from his days as Milwaukee County exec and answer more questions about the John Doe probe that has ensnared several former aides.

Walker shot back it was a “desperate attack from a desperate campaign” looking to talk about anything but the positive job news that has emerged over the past week.

Just more than two weeks out from the June 5, Barrett ramped up questions about the John Doe probe. Dems went on the offensive over the probe this weekend, and Barrett’s campaign released a new TV ad on the investigation.

Today, he called for the release of thousands of emails from the secret email system that Walker’s aides used in his county exec office.

“If he’s not a target like he says, there’s no reason not to release them,” Barrett told reporters in Milwaukee. “You can't have it both ways. If Scott Walker has said he has turned those records over to the prosecutor, there's no reason why he shouldn't reveal those records to the public.”

In Madison, Walker told reporters Barrett doesn’t want to talk about jobs, collective bargaining or the budget because the guv’s reforms are working.

"They keep moving to anything else except what this recall was supposedly about in the first place because our reforms are working,” Walker said.
