Walker Donor Arrested As Part Of Ongoing Investigation
A person close to an ongoing investigation into Gov. Scott Walker’s current and past aides said a commercial real estate broker in Milwaukee has been arrested for failing to cooperate with the probe.
Andrew P. Jensen Jr. was arrested Tuesday night but was released from custody Wednesday without being charged.
Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Scott Stiff said Jensen was ordered to come back on Jan. 25 and could be charged with something between now and then.
Online campaign finance records show Jensen donated $850 to Walker?s campaign between 2008 and 2010.
The arrest was first reported Wednesday by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which also broke the news of the probe’s existence in 2010.
Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm declined to comment. Jensen’s attorney, Patrick Schott, did not immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.
A person who spoke to The Associated Press requested anonymity because those involved in secret proceedings are prohibited by state law from talking publicly about them.
