3. Nothing begets a plea deal more than seeing a cohort in crime doing some time.

6. Urinal/Sentinel article...Plea deal reached in case against former Walker aide

http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/plea-deal-reached-in-embezzlement-case-against-former-walker-aide-1i7q2d3-180926281.html

A plea agreement has been reached in the felony embezzlement case against Timothy D. Russell, a former aide to Gov. Scott Walker.
Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf said Monday a hearing on the plea deal is set for Thursday but declined to discuss terms of the deal. Russell's lawyer, Parker Mathers, didn't immediately return a phone call late Monday.

Russell, 49, was charged in January with embezzling more than $20,000 from a veterans group through a nonprofit organization that Walker assigned him to lead. He's accused of siphoning money raised for Operation Freedom, an annual veterans fair and picnic at the zoo hosted by Walker during his time as Milwaukee County executive.
Russell served as deputy chief of staff and housing director at the county during the period he's accused of plundering the veterans money.

Russell transferred money from the nonprofit, the Heritage Guard Preservation Society, to his personal accounts and used it for Caribbean and Hawaiian vacations, according to a criminal complaint. He's also charged with stealing money from campaign accounts of two Milwaukee County Board candidates.

Russell also has been named as having set up a secret computer system in the county executive's office that prosecutors say was used for communication between Walker's county staff and staff for his successful 2010 campaign for governor. He has not been charged in connection with that, however.

He faced more than 14 years in jail and fines of up to $45,000 on two felony counts and one misdemeanor.

7. The other shoe, when it drops, could make a disproportionately loud, "THUD."

Just parsing those last three sentences:

1.) That would be the same 'secret computer system' that Walker told Russell to shut down, in this email:



2.) So maybe the prosecutors didn't charge Russell for his role in setting up the network, because the responsibility for it lies.....
