Gov. Scott Walker remained on a jury in a personal injury civil trial Tuesday, despite having received campaign donations from an executive of an insurance company that is a defendant in the case.
Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Kevin Martens noted someone had disclosed to him that the governor had received donations from a Secura executive. The judge made his remarks before jurors were brought into the courtroom.
Walker received $2,000 in donations from Secura CEO John Bykowski from 2009 to 2011, according to a campaign finance database maintained by the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. The five Bykowski donations to Walker all were made while Bykowski was a Secura executive.
