MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's chief legal counsel left his job two days after the release of an email he sent joking about legalizing prostitution.

The email from John Schulze was among the 28,000 pages of documents collected as part of an investigation into illegal campaign work by former aides and associates of Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive.

Schulze sent the email in March 2010 to Walker's campaign manager and others. It contained a made up press release from 1998 in which Schulze jokes about legalizing prostitution as a tourist attraction in the Wisconsin Dells or employment opportunities for people on welfare.

Walker spokesman Tom Evenson says "the email is in poor taste and there is no room for this poor conduct" in Walker's administration.
