I have nothing to say, in other words.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, says the head of Wisconsin’s elections agency “has to go.” 

 But Gov. Scott Walker says the issue isn’t on his radar.

The previous update.   Scott Walker says he was unaware of $700,000 donation from mining company(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 8/23/2014)

"Not on my radar", in other words.    Asked whether he was aware that Gogebic Taconite secretly donated $700,000 to Wisconsin Club for Growth — a pro-business advocacy group directed by the governor's campaign adviser — Walker said, "Not to my knowledge."

Rick Scott for President.  (Tampa Bay Times, 5/12/2011)

About 3 years ago.  As much as Scott insists it's nowhere on his radar, some of his allies suspect he sees a last-minute 2012 presidential bid as a viable option. If so, he's delusional.
