MILWAUKEE (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker showed up for jury duty but was not picked to hear a murder trial in Milwaukee County.
Walker and 18 other potential jurors were struck from the panel Monday. No reasons were given.
But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Walker must wait with the rest of the juror pool until at least Monday afternoon for other trials that get underway.
Walker, who lives in Wauwatosa, says it was the third time he's been called for jury duty since holding public office.
He says he was not selected to sit on any trials during those stints.
Walker's jury duty this week had originally been scheduled for last summer but was deferred because of the July Milwaukee County Courthouse fire.
