Gov. Walker says he knows nothing of FBI investigation


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker says he's in the dark about the raid on the home of a top official in his administration.

Walker says his office has not been told anything about the search.

FBI agents combed through Cynthia Archer's home in Madison on Wednesday morning.

Archer says she doesn't know why they searched her home and maintains she's done nothing wrong.

Archer works for the Department of Children and Families and previously was an aide to Walker when he was Milwaukee County Executive.

When asked by reporters if he was concerned about the investigation, Walker responded by saying, "It's hard to tell, because we don't know what exactly is involved there. Until we know anything more... we don't know any details, we don't know what it may or may not be a part of."

The governor said he doesn't know any other details than what's been reported by media outlets around the state, but that "we'll be watching that and if we hear more, we'll obviously pay more attention to that."

Archer concedes she's learned the search is connected to an investigation sparked by a former co-worker's posts to political blogs, while working on Walker's campaign for governor.
