Walker Reform Claimed! No Private Email System Now, He Says

Knowing that the private email system set up in his Milwaukee County Executive office suite enabled law-breaking and evasion of the Open Records statute, now-Gov. Scott Walker says there is no similar system in the Governor's office.

But note the continual dance of denial, as Walker indirectly acknowledges the earlier system, but tries to distance himself from it:

Walker once again refused to say whether as county executive he knew of or used a secret email system set up in his office to avoid public scrutiny.
Doesn't he know how ridiculous this makes him look, so timid and without leadership?

I believe they yanked the email system from the Capitol at the same time his team was damaging computer hard drives during "routine maintenance".

He has and probably is receiving legal advice. He probably has been told that he can't openly admit to one element of a conspiracy for which he may face charges.

If he or others on the secret system are charged, the system and it's use becomes evidence, and knowing about and using the system will likely be part of the proof of participation in the conspiracy.
