WisPolitics: Former Walker aides charged in John Doe investigation
Former Walker aides Kelly Rindfleisch and Darlene Wink were charged today with doing campaign work from their Milwaukee County offices as they sought to raise money for Scott Walker’s guv campaign and Brett Davis’ lt. guv bid.
The charges stem from an ongoing John Doe investigation that began following a newspaper report that Wink was posting pro-Walker comments under news stories posted online and doing other political work while in her county office.
Wink resigned that day, and the complaint against Rindfleisch noted a drop in daytime fundraising activities from Walker’s county office immediately afterward.
The complaint said the change was reflected in an email exchanged between Walker from his campaign account and Tim Russell, who was then serving as his housing director in the Department of Health and Human Services.
