MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Police Department says it's evaluating threats made against Gov. Scott Walker through social media.
An email from police department spokeswoman Anne Schwartz says all threats are handled seriously and can be a criminal act. Schwartz declined to elaborate.
MPD says the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation is also looking into the threats. DOJ spokeswoman Dana Brueck says the agency investigates any and all threats.
Walker said Wednesday he doesn't compromise his safety, but is not going to let that stand in the way of doing his job and mingling with the people of Wisconsin.
The recall capped a bitter fight between Walker supporters and public sector unions and labor groups angered by cuts to collective bargaining that the governor advanced.
