MADISON – After news investigations revealed that top officials in Gov. Walker‘s administration helped to steer a $500,000 unsecured state loan to a well-connected campaign donor, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-la Crosse) released the following statement:

“While it is unclear whether any criminal violations may have occurred, I am deeply troubled by the recent allegations of pay-to-play politics involving Gov. Walker’s office and his campaign contributors. The fact that critical financial documents and public records have either been lost, misplaced or destroyed raises additional questions about the lack of transparency at Gov. Walker’s WEDC.

“Gov. Walker’s scandal-plagued WEDC has been at the center of numerous troubling reports. The public deserves answers and I hope that the Department of Justice will conduct a thorough and open investigation into any potential wrongdoings.”
