Milwaukee County says nearly all Walker-related emails from John Doe probe have been released


MADISON, Wisconsin — Milwaukee County officials say they don't plan another mass release of emails collected in the John Doe investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's aides and associates when he was county executive.

County attorney Paul Bargren says in a letter Wednesday to The Associated Press that more than 29 gigabytes of documents were released as ordered by a judge between August and December. The AP and other news organizations reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents during that time.

Bargren says more than 2,500 emails remain to be released that deal with constituents or their representatives inquiring about public assistance issues. He says they are full of personally identifiable information and the county has no more money budgeted to process them.

Bargren says requesting media can come review the records if they want.
