15. A few more possible players...
Edited on Mon Apr-11-11 07:12 AM by eowyn_of_rohan
from the blogosphere...

In 2010 actions were taken by Milwaukee County Executive Lee Holloway, including terminating the employment of at least four Walker staffers including Tim Russell, Bob Nenno and Steven Kreklow.

It's believed that Tim Russell was fired, at least in part, due to his involvement in a growing scandal regarding illegal campaign activities during the gubernatorial election.

Russell and former Walker aide Darlene Wink are both being investigated in a John Doe investigation regarding whether they participated in illegal campaign activities. The investigation is also looking into whether the Walker campaign received illegal donations from William E. Gardner, president and CEO of Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Co.

If keeps expanding to include more and more people, so is a windfall for Milwaukee area defense attorneys.

From the newspapers article, we know that Michael Maistelman is representing Tim Russell. Former U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic has been retained by the Walker campaign. Christopher Weismueller is representing Darlene Wink. Robert Friebert is defending William Gardner.

Milwaukee County First has learned of two other big name attorneys who have been hired by people embroiled in this scandal.

One of the attorneys is Frank Gimbel. It is not known who Gimbel is representing, but the rumor is that it might be Tom Nardelli, who was Walkers Chief of Staff.

The other name that MCF has heard of becoming involved in this matter is former Waukesha District Attorney Paul Bucher. It is not known at the time of this writing who has retained Buchers services.
