MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he doesn't know anything about an FBI raid on the home of one of his top aides beyond what he's seen reported in the press.

Walker said Friday that "it's hard to tell" whether he should be concerned about the raid on the home of Cynthia Archer. Archer was his aide when he was Milwaukee County executive and followed him to work in state government when he was elected governor.

Walker says he hasn't been in contact with Archer and his office hasn't been told anything about the raid.

He says his office doesn't "know what exactly is involved."

Archer says she's done nothing wrong and that she never was told whether she's part of a larger investigation into former county employees' work under Walker.
