MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Milwaukee County officials are planning to release thousands of emails prosecutors collected during the first secret investigation into Gov. Scott Walker’s former aides and associates when he was county executive.

A spokesman for Chris Abele, the county’s current executive, says Abele’s office will make nearly 16,000 emails and attachments that prosecutors seized from county and personal computers available Tuesday.

Abele’s office has already made tens of thousands of documents related to the probe public and expects to release even more material beyond Tuesday’s release.

The investigation ended in 2013 with six of Walker’s aides and associates convicted on charges ranging from theft to misconduct in office.

Walker wasn’t charged, although prosecutors launched a second secret investigation in 2012 focusing on whether his campaign illegally coordinated with conservative groups.
