MADISON (AP) – The latest batch of documents seized during a now-closed investigation into aides to Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive are set to be released on Friday.

The Milwaukee County executive’s office announced Thursday that 14 gigabytes of data would be released. That is just a small portion of the 500 gigabytes of data that was handed over.

The documents being released Friday do not include any emails. Instead, they include documents saved on county employees’ work computers such as pictures, word files and spreadsheets.

Six aides and associates of Walker’s were convicted as a result of the investigation. A second investigation, into a host of conservative groups and Walker’s 2012 recall campaign, grew out of the first probe but was halted by a federal judge in May.
