13. Yes but he's been probed!
Er...




State election officials and prosecutors say they plan to make an announcement about an investigation into a railroad magnate's donations to Gov. Scott Walker's campaign.

The state Government Accountability Board and Milwaukee prosecutors will hold a news conference Monday afternoon in Madison to discuss the results of an investigation into allegations of illegal contributions by Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Company chief executive William Gardner.

Gardner last May apologized for using company money to reimburse employees' political donations to Walker. The governor, who was in the middle of a primary contest at the time, returned about $44,000 in contributions. Donating corporate money to political candidates is illegal in Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee County district attorney's office didn't immediately return a message. Gardner also didn't immediately return a message left at his office.
