Giving Thanks for the Recent JOHN DOE BOMBSHELL That IMPLICATES Scott Walker




As we suggested way back when this started, the prosecutor in the John Doe case is clearly working his way up to bigger fish and on Monday, revealed documents indicating Governor Scott Walker’s participation in campaigning activity going on in his county office at the taxpayers’ expense.



Here is the bombshell you knew was coming if you read PoliticusUSA:



Gov. Scott Walker and his top campaign and Milwaukee County aides were named Monday as part of a team that routinely commingled political and official county business.

http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/walker-key-aides-implicated-during-doe-sentencing-fn7n3s3-180021891.html




Kelly Rindfleisch, Walker’s Deputy Chief of Staff in his Milwaukee County Executive office, was found guilty of one count of felony misconduct and sentenced to six months in jail with three years probation. She’s the fourth person to be convicted under the John Doe investigation so far. The judge presiding over the John Doe investigation granted the prosecutor the right to use the Walker documents in court way back on January 25.



Walker was supposed to testify for the defense, but several days later the defense made a plea bargain. You can read between the lines that Mr. Walker did not want to appear in court and offer sworn testimony on behalf of his former staffer, and thus she was forced to make a deal with the prosecution. That probably wasn’t the best idea for Walker either, but he certainly can’t afford to appear on court under oath on this matter.

5. Ohhh now that would be great

and I think that if he should be arrested and jerked out of office, the state legislature, now under democratic control, would be the deciders when it comes to selecting his replacement..... Ohpleaseohpleaseohplease....

10. No, I think the replacement would be the LtGov, Rebecca Kleefisch.

Anyway, the Repugs regained control of the Legislature in the last election due to gerrymandering.

27. Well that sucks

But she just got in trouble over the same case so maybe that could disqualify her? Man, that state's in need of a serious housecleaning. I lived there, Madison, back in the early 80s. Had some issues then too. Too bad.

12. Me too. Was hoping it would happen once his underlings copped a plea.

Would be a happy new year if he was brought down. I hope Russ Feingold considers running for Gov if indeed Walker gets ousted.

WE WANT PERP WALK FOR NEW YEARS!

13. I hope Feingold runs in 2014 regardless of whether Walker is brought down by this. Also

the dream team (after Obama is gone):

Feingold - Gov of WI

Pelosi or Grayson - Speaker of the House

Warren - Chair of banking in the senate

Sanders/Brown - POTUS and VPOTUS

I've never seen an article that links these two "famous" personages from Wisconsin.

15. I don't care what the Supreme Court says about no evidence that money corrupts pols

They obviously weren't looking too hard before coming to that conclusion.

The Dave and Chartlie Koch are among the most corrupting influences on 21st century American politicians and Scott Walker is one of the most corrupted politicians of our time.

I hope all three of the above named do a perp walk. Will it be on pay-per-view?

19. Great Stuff on this from an awesome local (WI) blogger

Drilling down for details, it turns out... there is more:

http://cognidissidence.blogspot.com/2012/11/walkergate-then-theres-still-even-more.html

In going through the presentation, I noticed some things that I thought significant that the media either missed or omitted from their reports.

On Page 2, it is reported that Rindfleisch has turned on her cohort in crime, Tim Russell. This would indicate that they are indeed trying to make Russell the fall guy for all the illegal campaigning. Unfortunately, the emails that we know about belie their false front (for example, see page 73, at the bottom).

Landgraf then goes on for several pages clearly demonstrating that Rindfleisch knew what she was doing was wrong, yet sent out and received some 3,500 campaign related emails, 70% of which occurred during the work hours. And that was just in a period of a few months. Extrapolate that over the year and the number easily tops 10,000 campaign emails....

...Now, the various emails that Landgraf has revealed show that Walker was often the recipient of these illegal campaigning emails. If one overlooks his false claims of stopping the illegal campaigning once he was aware of it, Walker would be able to have a plausible excuse of being a passive recipient of the emails and therefore completely innocent. If anything, he might admit to being negligent by making sure the illegal campaigning emails had stopped.

But that would be just another one of Walker's many lies.

of officials that can be trusted to do the right thing? Because email would leave tracks either way.
