by Brian Bolduc

The Wisconsin attorney general’s office has released some of the evidence for the death threats made against Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican state legislators who voted for his collective-bargaining legislation. See the press release below.

MADISON – We have received a large number of requests for the following information that was released today.

In response to those requests for information about investigations into threats at the Capitol, I have attached a copy of a spread-sheet listing closed complaints.  I have also attached a copy of a letter which responds to a formal public records request for this same information that describes what we have and have not released.
