One year after the historic Wisconsin uprising began, one million signatures to recall Governor Scott Walker are being reviewed. At the same time, a corruption investigation weâ€™ve dubbed Walkergate is underway. Our governor has shown a consistent contempt for the rule of lawâ€”who knows whether Wisconsin voters or other forces of justice will have the first chance to remove him from power?
Every day it seems we learn of a new development in this investigation. To keep abreast, since the story is complicated and far-reaching and the media will not give you the latest news, visit http://www.walkerinvestigation.comÂ Hereâ€™s a short summary of the John Doe probe that has implicated current Walker aides and associates who also worked for him while Walker was Milwaukee County Executive.
Timothy Russell, his deputy chief of staff at the time, has been charged with embezzling money from a veteransâ€™ event he ran from the county executive's office. Kelly Rindfleisch, also a former deputy chief of staff, was charged with four counts of felony misconduct in office for doing campaign fundraising on county time. Aide Darlene Wink has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting campaign funds.
The illegal campaign-at-work set-up was located just a few steps from Walkerâ€™s office. We know that those arrested so far used a secret email router and laptops brought from home to conduct campaign business while on the clock for Milwaukee county. An email from Scott Walker shows that he knew what they were up to. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has asked that Walker meet with prosecutors in the near future, and Walker has hired two high power criminal lawyers to represent him. We have a LOT of questions for Governor Walker ourselves.
How are Andrew Jensen, the realty mogul, and Reince Preibus, then Republican Party of Wisconsin chairman and now head of the Republican National Committee involved?
Why were so many files and computers missing from the Milwaukee County Courthouse when Walker left to become governor?
What about Cindy Archer? What did they find in the things investigators took when they raided her Madison home, including a computer hard drive?
Please share the information in this post (use the Facebook share link below) so that your friends know that Scott Walker is very involved in this scandal despite his spin on things, which is "I've offered to come in and talk to the DA to lend my help to the investigation." Bye Bye, Governor Walker. Soon, we hope.
