MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Governor Scott Walker says he's shown high integrity his entire life and he will continue to show that in the face of an ongoing secret criminal probe that's already ensnared some of his former top aides. Walker was asked about the ongoing investigation during last night's recall election debate in Milwaukee versus Democratic Mayor Tom Barrett.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin elections officials are reminding voters that posting photos of completed ballots on Facebook or Twitter is illegal — but high-ranking members of both political parties apparently missed the memo. Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate and St. Croix County Republican Party Chairman Jesse Garza said yesterday they'd removed their ballot photos after finding out the postings violated state law.
