BREAKING: New Information Answers John Doe Question; Reveals Scott Walker Was Solely Responsible for

Source: Democratic Party of Wisconsin

New research obtained by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin reveals that Scott Walker alone was responsible for the hire and promotion of Tim Russell and Kelly Rindfleisch, two key figures in the John Doe criminal corruption probe that has, to date, charged six close Walker aides and supporters with 15 felonies, resulted in two convictions and required Scott Walker himself to establish a criminal defense fund.

Personnel records obtained through an Open Records Request from the Milwaukee County Department of Human Resources show that Scott Walker was solely responsible for hiring Kelly Rindfleisch and Tim Russell, and for their subsequent promotions to increasingly trusted, responsible and lucrative positions in the Walker administration. Russell, charged with embezzling charitable contributions intended for wounded veterans and families of fallen military servicemembers and using the money, in part, to finance illegal corporate contributions to Scott Walker’s campaign, is well known as a longtime aide and adviser to Scott Walker who served in a number of roles in the Walker administration, including Deputy Chief of Staff. Scott Walker alone signed off on Russell’s hire with the County – available to view here.

Rindfleisch’s hire to the County Executive’s office, however, has been wrapped in suspicion. In court documents released in the criminal investigation into Rindfleisch’s alleged felony misuse of public office, Walker’s then-Chief of Staff Tom Nardelli stated that he had been unaware of the circumstances of Rindfleisch’s hire to the office he ran. Rindfleisch stated that she was hired to the office to do political work on Walker’s campaign, under the direction and supervision of Tim Russell.

Milwaukee County personnel records indicate that Scott Walker alone signed off on both Rindfleisch's initial hire to his administration and her subsequent promotion to Deputy Chief of Staff.

2. So check me on this so I know I have it correct

Scott Walker is solely responsible for hiring Rindfleisch to a job whose purpose she asserts was to do campaign work--which would be felony misuse of that office?

Dear Tonette, in the interest of trying to be helpful, you might want to look these over...http://www.wi-doc.com/DAI_Visiting_Policy.htm

Only a matter of time before one of his lackeys cuts a deal and spills the beans.

4. Walker knows he's toast. That's why he signed all those heinous anti-women bills

into law. He's trying to do as much damage as he can while he can. He probably won't even make it until the Recall.

13. What he's trying to do is desperately please the Koch brothers

So they'll reward him instead of punish him for failing. Without their reward he's dead politically and a pariah socially. It's all survival for him right now.

I bet they throw him under the bus because he'll no longer be of use to them.

9. Seems like Walker continues to "redirect" funds, I saw where he is planning to use some of the

Mortgage funding to WI to "balance" his budget. Thief
