(AP) Wisconsin Corrections Secretary Ed Wall is warning employees of his department they could lose their job if they spread what he calls ``false or malicious information'' about the agency. An email provided to The Associated Press by a Corrections employee and confirmed as authentic by the department shows Wall sent the message on Monday.
Wall writes he is disturbed about rumors floating around the 10,000-employee agency that it may be opening a new prison or privatizing operations. He says those rumors are baseless and says ``people who are involved in spreading that rumor should stop immediately.''
He says doing so is a workplace violation that will be ``strictly enforced.''
Wall adds, ``Improper use of email causes problems and has cost people their jobs. Please don't be one of them.''
(AP) Gov. Scott Walker raised nearly $474,000 in the six months after he won his recall election in 2012.
Walker reported Thursday that he raised that much between July 1 and the end of the year. While significant, it pales in comparison to the $29.5 million he raised in the first half of the year as the June recall election loomed. Walker entered this year with nearly $794,000 cash on hand.
Even though the recall is behind him, Walker faces his regularly scheduled re-election campaign in less than two years. He will enter that race with a significant cash advantage over whichever Democratic candidate emerges.
Walker made his summary page available late Thursday. His full report showing individual contributions was not immediately available on the state elections board website.

Altoona police worked with the Juneau County Sheriff's Office and Mauston Police Department to find Tadder who had multiple warrants.
Minnesota may be helping Wisconsin attract more jobs, according to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Not that the Gopher State is trying to help its neighbor...but Walker says, Minnesota policies should make Wisconsin more appealing to businesses, because that state's governor plans to raise taxes.
Speaking to reporters in La Crosse yesterday, the governor said again that his upcoming budget bill will include tax cuts to stimulate job growth. Walker brought new Economic Development director Reed Hall with him to La Crosse, to meet Mayor Matt Harter and business leaders.
Planting dozens of ash trees in the town of Onalaska years ago may have been a 'mistake,' according to one of the men who helped make it happen.
John Haese is now helping the town treat those trees with chemicals, to keep the trees from being killed by the emerald ash borer. Haese says town leaders should have planted a wider variety of trees in the past...and he's urging them to do that now. The ash borer has not been detected yet in the town of Onalaska. Haese is planning to use the chemical treatment on the ash trees for the second straight year. He says the ash borer was not a threat in the U.S. until it was brought here from other countries about 10 years ago.
