MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he's shown high integrity his entire life and he will continue to show that in the face of an ongoing secret criminal probe that's already ensnared some of his former top aides and associates.
Walker was asked about the ongoing investigation during Friday's recall election debate in Milwaukee.
Walker says his opponent Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett continues to bring up the investigation because he is desperate and wants to distract from his record.
Barrett in the debate renewed his call on Walker to release emails related to the probe and reveal who is funding a criminal defense fund he has established.
Walker says he's been told by investigators he is not the focus of the investigation.
