Who's Walker's "Best" Boy And Other Walkergate Wonderings

http://cognidissidence.blogspot.com/2012/07/whos-walkers-best-boy-and-other.html

Three quick things that are going on or have gone on regarding the ongoing saga of Walkergate (OK, two short and one longer thing):

*****

Yesterday, I noted that Darlene Wink's sentencing hearing was adjourned for four months in order to guarantee her continued cooperation against Tim Russell and a mystery case in Waukesha. I speculated that it might have something to do with Walker's campaign.

Since then, Marie Rohde, writing for WisPolitics.com, reported that Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel wasn't going to prosecute the suspect because he could "demonstrate that he knew what he was doing was wrong." Schimel described it as a "side issue" not involving campaigning from work. What he didn't say is whether it had something to do with illegally coordination between Walker's campaign and Walker's county executive office.

*****

On Thursday morning, Kelly Rindfleisch will be back in court regarding her defense's Kastiger Motion (that's the fancy legal term for Universal Immunity, the kind that spans all time and cases, apparently) and motions to suppress evidence. Landgraf has already loaded up with a lot more evidence - which should be a lot of fun to go through - and some have speculated that they will be piling up the charges, even tripling the current four to make it twelve felony charges, against her. I'm sure that they have more than enough evidence to do so.

It's good to see that the DA's office is tired of all the crap that has been dished their way and are willing to up the ante to put more pressure on these politi-thugs.

2. Why do you think that? There's a mountain of evidence of his wrongdoing?

4. How Long Have You Been

 

observing our politics?

Me--40 years. In that time I've seen _very_ few politicians busted.. more or less like very few white collar criminals are busted.

this "mountain of evidence" appears to be exaggerated/hyped like much in politics is.
first it was the recall, which progressives assured us was going to remove wanker from
office (fail)... now it's the slim hope he's going to get busted and sent to prison.

6. Never heard of Chuck Chvala, huh?

As for your "appears to be exaggerated/hyped" comment, that sounds like Charlie Sykes talking, not John Chisholm.

3. How do you know?? It's not the speculations that influence my thinking at least.

It's the fact that there is a DOJ & FBI investigation of all his aides, with respective indictments, and Walker's legal defense fund--not to mention several other "clues".

5. The DOJ? You've got to be kidding me

 

an investigation of some of walker's aides is not an investigation/indictment of
him.

let me know when the investigation of walker starts in earnest.
