Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doesn't want to talk about the trove of emails released last week from the secret political email system that was installed in his office when he was Milwaukee County executive because
“If you look at the facts out there, this is old news. This is about a case that was closed last March. A Democratic district attorney in Milwaukee County spent multiple years looking at all this information,” the Republican governor said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Except the emails were just released on Wednesday. Yes, they were sent nearly four years ago, but they are just being made public now. That's pretty much the opposite of old news. Yet Walker won't answer the question that people in Wisconsin have been asking:
Walker declined to answer whether he personally used a secret email system, saying instead that the case was over. “You had a Democratic district attorney spend almost three years looking at almost every single of one those communications, interviewing people, talking to people and closed the case last March,” the governor said.
Here's the thing: If it truly is old news, why hasn't he
already answered the question?
