A new court filing shows investigators believed Gov. Scott Walker committed a felony when he was Milwaukee County executive in relation to an office lease and cleaning service contract.
Walker was never charged and neither were either of the other two people investigators named in the 2011 request for a search warrant related to the probe.
The filing made Wednesday by prosecutors comes in a lawsuit against them brought by a longtime Walker aide Cindy Archer whose home was searched during the investigation, known as a John Doe.
In the search warrant request, prosecutors say they believe there was probable cause that Walker, longtime Walker friend and campaign treasurer John Hiller and real estate broker Andrew Jensen committed felony misconduct in office.
Walker has long maintained he did nothing wrong.
