“We don’t know what exactly is involved,” Walker told the Associated
Press on Friday [September 16], when asked at an unrelated event in Milwaukee. He also added: “Until we know, obviously it’s a concern but again, I don’t know any more details than what I’ve seen reported in the media outlets around the state.”
Gov. Scott Walker’s chief spokesman has been granted immunity in the ongoing John Doe investigation of the governor’s current and former aides, it was learned Friday.
Former Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim, who is overseeing the secret criminal probe, said he had granted immunity to three people, including Cullen Werwie, spokesman for Walker, in this part of the case. Records show he was granted immunity April 14.
Last year, Werwie joined Walker’s campaign after the September primary and stayed on when Walker took office in January. He earns $61,000 per year.
This is really getting interesting.
