Report: FBI Agents At Home Of Former Gov. Walker Aide

No Word On Connection To Ongoing Investigation

Updated: 11:59 am CDT September 14, 2011

At least four FBI agents were at the home of a former top aide to Gov. Scott Walker, according to a report by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The home, which is located at 502 Dunning St. on Madison's East Side, is owned by Cynthia A. Archer, the former deputy administration secretary to the Republican governor.

One of the agents had a large camera and two of them were wearing latex gloves, according to the JSOnline report. It said the agents spent time in the back yard and then went into the house, removing a large banker's box.

A neighbor said about a dozen law enforcement officers arrived around 6:45 a.m, according to the report.

WISC-TV contacted the governor's office, but a spokesman for the governor offered no comment.

Cindy Archer left her top post with Walker's administration last month for "personal family matters," but she already had another politically appointed job under the governor lined up.

The JSOnline investigation showed that Archer took a $25,000 pay cut in moving to a position at the Department of Children and Families, but the nearly $100,000 salary in that job is still tens of thousands of dollars more than the pay of others who have had the job.

State officials have said Archer remained on leave. Department spokeswoman Stephanie Hayden has not answered whether Archer was being paid while on leave, saying that was confidential.

Archer, 52, who held the top position under Walker in Milwaukee County, followed him to Madison after he won the governor's race in November.

Archer's departure coincides with a growing John Doe investigation in Milwaukee County, started last year after the disclosure that a Walker staffer at the county had posted political commentary on websites while on her job in the county executive's office, according to JSOnline.

JSOline reported that Archer said she was "not involved in any way in the John Doe investigation."

A John Doe is an investigation in which witnesses give testimony in a closed proceeding before a judge to determine if any laws were broken.
