Gov. Scott Walker

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Thousands of more documents collected during the first John Doe investigation into former aides and associates of Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive have been released.

The 7 gigabytes of documents were released Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. They were collected during the now-closed investigation that resulted in six convictions on a variety of charges.

Walker was never charged with wrongdoing.

The emails and other documents released come from the county email system and also include other documents that were on the county’s computer network. Emails from personal accounts have yet to be released.

This is the second massive release of data from the probe. The first released in August did not include emails.
