scott-walkerAPPLETON, WI - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker answered media questions Friday afternoon about an investigation into allegations of abuse at the Lincoln Hills youth prison which prompted a federal investigation and the resignation of Ed Wall, the head of the Department of Corrections.

The announcement of Wall's resignation also came less than a day after Gov. Scott Walker’s office acknowledged it was warned of safety problems at Lincoln Hills dating back to 2012, which appeared at odds with Walker’s previous comments.

This Periscope video was taken by Matthew DeFour, an government investigative reporter for the Wisconsin State Journal in Madison.
