Walker administration official gone after email

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The chief legal counsel for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation left his job two days after the release of an email he sent joking about legalizing prostitution.

The email was sent by John Schulze. It was part of the 28,000 pages of documents released as part of the John Doe investigation involving the Milwaukee County Executive's Office when Gov. Scott Walker was the county executive.

Schulze sent the email in March 2010 to Walker's campaign manager and others. It contained a made up press release from 1998 in which Schulze jokes about legalizing prostitution as a tourist attraction in Wisconsin Dells or job opportunities for people on welfare.

Tom Evenson, a spokesman for Gov. Walker, says, "the email is in poor taste and there is no room for this poor conduct" in Walker's administration.
