Walker doesn't name donors to legal fund

MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Gov. Scott Walker continues to keep secret the names of donors who contributed to his legal defense fund.

Walker's latest statement of economic interests filed with the Government Accountability Board this week does not name donors whose contributions went toward the $447,000 defense fund. He does name other donations he received last year, including cuff links from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and a bottle of wine from Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

Walker set up the defense fund to pay for costs associated with a criminal investigation into his former aides and associates. The probe ended without any charges against Walker.

Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate says Walker should be transparent and name the donors.

But GAB spokesman Reid Magney says the governor is not required to name them.
