MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin's top elections official has rejected an open records request filed by two Republicans who wanted information about how much investigators have been paid to look into alleged illegal campaign activity by Gov. Scott Walker's recall campaign and other conservative groups.
Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy on Tuesday rejected the request saying state law did not allow him to release confidential investigatory records. The request was filed last month by state Sen. Tom Tiffany and state Rep. David Craig.
They have called for reforms at the agency that enforces campaign laws, saying the public should have more access to its investigatory records.
Last month Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen also said the GAB could not provide its investigatory records to auditors doing a review of the entire agency.
