FITCHBURG, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he has created a "clear distinction between things that are political and official" in the governor's office.

It was blurred lines between political work and official government operations that motivated a three-year investigation into Walker's Milwaukee County executive office. Walker's deputy chief of staff was convicted of misconduct in office for going campaign work on the taxpayer dime.

Walker wasn't charged in the probe. The release last week of 28,000 pages of documents collected during the probe are leading to a new round of questions about illegal campaign work going on in Walker's county executive office.

Walker said Tuesday that he now carries one cellphone for official state business and one for personal use. And Walker says his governor's office staff undergoes ethics training.
