If we were to believe Scott Walker, all the illegal activity emanating from his offices and from his appointees, were all risks taken by those individuals who couldn’t wait to break the law for the benefit of Walker.
Even as the names continue to pile up, Walker is getting a pass. It's as if “guilt through association” for some reason, doesn’t apply to Walker. Besides being a bad judge of character, Walker surrounded himself with rogue political activists. Yet Walker didn’t have a clue?
jsonline: Two staffers who worked directly for Gov. Scott Walker while he was county executive were charged Thursday with illegally doing extensive political work while being paid by taxpayers to do county jobs.
Kelly Rindfleisch, deputy chief of staff to Walker in 2010, faces four felony counts of misconduct in office for working for then-Rep. Brett Davis' 2010 campaign for lieutenant governor while on the county clock. Davis, who lost in the Republican primary, is now Walker's state Medicaid director. "In the course of the investigation, it was learned that a private e-mail network was established and operated out of the County Executive's office and that the private network was used to communicate both political campaign and government work related information to select individuals," said a press release from District Attorney John Chisholm.
Connecting the dots, Rindfleisch worked illegally for Brett Davis, who Walker secretly wanted as Lt. Governor, but lost to Rebecca Kleefisch, and was then given a post in the administration for his trouble.
Also facing two misdemeanors is Darlene Wink, Walker's one-time constituent services coordinator, who is accused of using county resources to raise money for Walker's 2010 gubernatorial bid. Wink, a former vice chair of the Milwaukee County Republican Party, resigned in May 2010 after admitting that she was spending part of her work day doing campaign work.
Walker's chief of staff, Tom Nardelli, issued a statement at the time saying that "no one in our office had any knowledge" that Wink was doing political work out of the county office.
Walker supporters are so dedicated they would willingly break the law, supposedly behind Walker’s back, to keep him and his cronies in power? Here's the coverage from Channel3000:
