After more than a year, we are finally approaching the end of the first wave of Walkergate.
On Tuesday, January 22, Tim Russell, long time personal friend of and political operative for Scott Walker, will be facing his sentencing hearing.
Later on that same day is the final motion hearing for Brian Pierick, Russell domestic and business partner, who is facing charges for child enticement. The jury trial is set to start two days later, on Thursday.
It's a little ironic, but rather poetic, that the fates of these two men continue to be tied together.
In advance of Russell's sentencing, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office has filed their sentencing memo.
It tells the tale of a deplorable little man who had an unquenchable greed. He had no morals and no qualms about stealing from anyone and everyone he could steal from, whether it was campaign finances or a veterans fund or the taxpayers.
In other words, Russell is the kind of man who would steal Christ from the cross and go back for the nails....
