Walker doesn't disclose total book payment

Posted Wednesday, April 30, 2014 --- 11:41 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's statement of economic interest discloses that he received payment of more than $1,000 from book publisher Penguin Sentinel for his book released last fall, but he does not reveal the total he was paid.

The form filed Wednesday does not require Walker to disclose the entire amount he was paid for "Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge," which was released in November.

Walker has declined to say how much he was paid for the book, which detailed his fight with public unions and the subsequent recall election. The book publisher has also declined to say how much Walker was paid.

Walker's campaign spokesman and official office spokeswoman did not immediately return messages asking if Walker would now say how much he received.
