MADISON, Wis. -

Newly released emails and other documents show that Gov. Scott Walker and his family received numerous death threats over his first two years in office, none of which have resulted in criminal charges being filed in Madison.

The 116 pages of records were released by Walker's office Friday following an open records request made by The Associated Press.

Most of the threats come from shortly after Walker took office in 2011 when his proposal going after public union collective bargaining spawned massive protests that lasted weeks.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Justice said Monday there are no open investigations into threats against Walker. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne says said office has not charged anyone related to the threats.

Walker's spokesman declined to comment.
