Gov. Walker "War Room" file among first John Doe probe docs released

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - When he was the Milwaukee County executive, Governor Scott Walker had a "War Room" file which helped him identify targets and the best ways to get his message out.

The file was in Walker's county-owned computer -- and it was one of the documents released Friday morning in connection with his first John Doe probe.

Current County Executive Chris Abele released 14 gigabytes of computer files and photos -- part of 500 gigabytes of evidence in the Doe probe in which 6 former Milwaukee County Walker associates were convicted.

The "War Room" file spelled out the issues Walker wanted to promote, groups he wanted to criticize, places he planned to go, and the media he targeted for getting his story out.  

Walker also had an "issues" file in which he mentioned the need to lobby state lawmakers on park concerns, and what he called "work on a new board member" about county pension concerns.
