MADISON - Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following news reports that search warrants were executed today by local and federal law enforcement agencies at homes of Scott Walker aides.
"The news of a criminal investigation involving aides to Scott Walker is disturbing. During his time as Milwaukee County Executive, Walker played fast and loose with ethics and created a pay-to-play culture of secrecy and deceit. The people of Wisconsin need assurance that this has not carried over to his term as governor. We look forward to the day when Walker himself gives a full explanation of his role in today's raids."
