MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Prosecutors in the investigation of Gov. Scott Walker's recall campaign and other conservative groups are objecting to a request that some of the records in the case remain secret.

Attorneys for Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm and two of his prosecutors filed a motion in federal court late Thursday objecting to the Wisconsin Club for Growth's request that all or portions of 13 documents remain sealed.

Both sides had agreed that most of the secret documents in the investigation should be made public, given that so much information is already known.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa is considering the request. He had previously ruled in favor of Wisconsin Club for Growth that the investigation related to illegal campaign coordination was an infringement on the conservative group's free speech rights.
