MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - For now at least, Governor Scott Walker's main election opponent is taking a quiet high road concerning the allegations that Walker broke campaign laws in 2012.

Democrat Mary Burke's chief spokesman would only say that "Wisconsinites deserve a governor they can trust."

Over 200 pages of court documents were released Thursday from a temporarily halted John Doe probe.

Prosecutors alleged that Walker and two GOP strategists headed a "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate campaign fundraising between a dozen conservative groups and the recall election campaigns of Walker and GOP state senators.

Special prosecutor Francis Schmitz said multiple laws were broken, including the filing of false campaign finance reports. No charges have been filed, and Walker said two federal and state judges vindicated him.

Instead of hammering her opponent on the John Doe, Burke chose to highlight the state's relatively slow progress in creating jobs.

A federal report Thursday showed that Wisconsin had the nation's 37th slowest job growth percentage during 2013.
