Wisconsin: Walkergate heats up.
From the Cognitive Dissidence blog...
Well, that pretty much cooks Rindfleisch's goose. It verifies that she was campaigning for both Walker and his choice of potential lieutenant governors, Brett Davis, while she was on the taxpayers' dime.
This little exchange also implicates that Walker's campaign manager, Keith Gilkes, who was in Walker's administration, was in the middle of the illegal campaigning. I bet he really loved working with Cullen Werwie, who was given immunity, presumably for ratting on all of them.
Even better than that, this exchange goes farther than anything else to this point at implicating Tom Nardelli. Nardelli was Walker's Chief of Staff at Milwaukee County and ended up in some cushy state jobs until he suddenly quit. Well, this would explain why people who know Nardelli have told me he's been looking a bit haggard since retiring. It might be that he is afraid of losing all of his pensions (he has three or four of them).
Look at what Walker is facing:
Kelly Rindfleisch, a political opportunist, is facing up to 14 years in jail and a huge fine. Walker is the only person that hired her and promoted her to his office, so that she could do his campaigning as well as for his favored running mate, Brett Davis.
More juicy details are surfacing every day. I'm beginning to think the indictment will get here before June 5th (election day).

2. No question he'll be indicted, eventually. He is "John Doe" in the John Doe investigation....
... and the evidence against him continues to pile up. One of his lackeys will cut a deal (assuming deals haven't already been cut) and turn state's evidence. He will be rooming with Rod Blago.
