The FBI on Wednesday raided the Madison home of a former aide to Gov. Scott Walker, as part of an ongoing investigation.
The home of Cynthia A. Archer was raided Wednesday morning, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Archer had previously been a top aide to Walker when he was Milwaukee County Executive. She has owned her Madison home since 1988, rented it out during her years working for Walker in Milwaukee County, and then moved back when he became governor.
There is currently an ongoing investigation into whether county employees engaged in political activity for Walker when he was the executive.
The Dane County Sheriff's Office confirmed to TPM that a deputy was present at Wednesday's raid, but was not involved in the investigation itself -- only to provide security outside the house. When asked for comment by TPM, the FBI referred questions about the matter to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office. The D.A. office declined comment. TPM also contacted Archer, who declined to comment citing a request from law enforcement.
