MADISON, Wis. — Democrat Mary Burke says Republican Gov. Scott Walker has set a "low bar for campaign ethics and as governor."

Burke commented Monday for the first time following the release of 28,000 pages of emails collected during an investigation into Walker's former aides and associates during his time as Milwaukee County executive.

Walker was not charged in the investigation and he has repeatedly said he did not know about the illegal activity that led to six people being convicted on a variety of charges.

Burke commented following a campaign stop in Green Bay. Burke says she would bring back trust and honesty if elected this fall.

Burke is a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive and past state Commerce Department secretary.
