MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he doesn't know if any of his emails will be included in thousands of messages prosecutors collected from a former Milwaukee County aide that are set to be released next week.

Prosecutors seized the emails from Kelly Rindfleisch, who pleaded guilty in 2012 to doing campaign work at her Milwaukee County government job. She was one of six people convicted following a secret John Doe investigation into Walker's former aides and associates when he served as Milwaukee County executive.

A state appeals court has agreed to release the emails on Feb. 19 at the request of The Associated Press and other media organizations.

Walker said Tuesday he's not sure if any of his emails will be included in the release.
