Scott Walker Pours More Dollars Into Criminal Defense Fund
Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign has transferred another $100,000 to the defense fund used to pay his pricey criminal defense lawyers in the lengthy John Doe investigation into activities during Walker’s time as county executive.
Newly filed campaign reports show Walker’s campaign transferred $70,000 to the Scott Walker Trust on May 3 and another $30,000 on May 17.
That bring the total the first-term governor has put in the defense fund to $160,000 in the past six weeks.
State law requires that the campaign get prior approval from donors before shifting their money to a legal-defense fund. Walker’s campaign has declined to identify the contributors who OK’d the transfers.
