MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker made his cabinet secretaries and top staffers sign a pledge that they would not do illegal campaign work during work hours.
The Associated Press said the Republican Walker began requiring signatures in November of 2011 for his new "Ethics Policy and Professional Code of Conduct." That was just two months after FBI agents and other authorities raided the home of Walker aide Cindy Archer.
The raid was part of the John Doe investigation into illegal campaign activities by members of Walker's former staff in the Milwaukee County executive's office.
Walker spokesman Tom Evenson told the AP the raid had nothing to do with requiring the governor's top staff from signing code of conduct pledges.
