Walker said an online posts that the city's been investigating whether she misused funds by purchasing the gift cards and by making a donation to a nonprofit run by a person who's spoken a council meeting. Daily progress reports that city staff members have known about Walker's gift card purchases for at least two years. Walker says no one told her those purchases were not allowed.
