DA initiated John Doe meeting with Walker

Gov. Scott Walker acknowledged Monday that prosecutors initiated the meeting they will have with him as part of the John Doe investigation about activities that occurred during Walker's tenure as Milwaukee County executive.

"Up until now, we've provided written documentation (from the campaign)," Walker said during a briefing with reporters in Waukesha. "They'd like to talk to us about what they've found and what additional help we can provide."

Walker announced last week that he had hired two criminal defense attorneys and would be voluntarily meeting with Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm regarding the John Doe investigation.

Prosecutors have charged four former Walker aides and appointees with various crimes, including theft and misconduct in office.
