Wouldn't surprise me if you're right.

There's a lot of loose money floating around in R-land, and what better use for it than to protect their favorite rock star governor?

Could be that was the purpose of the months of nationwide fund-raising Walker's been doing: his hush money fund.

Here are a few more details on the plea bargain:
One of Gov. Scott Walker's former top aides has agreed to plead to one felony misconduct charge in a deal with Milwaukee County prosecutors.

Kelly Rindfleisch is set to stand trial Monday on four counts of felony misconduct in office. Prosecutors have accused her of doing campaign work while she was supposed to be serving as Walker's deputy chief of staff during his stint as Milwaukee County executive.
...
Prosecutors have agreed to drop the remaining charges and seek no fines or forfeitures. They also have agreed to recommend she serve probation and an unspecified time in jail.

Just one question. Will Walker visit her in jail?

I'm thinking that if Kelly R. had anything incriminating to tell the DA about the Governor, she'd have already sung. The info that jail time is still in the mix tells me she hasn't sung...yet.

Rindfleisch tried to enter a plea of "no contest," but Hansher would not accept that plea, saying it was not appropriate in this case.

I originally read this as R. Kelly. Now that would be a story.

Carry on.

So does Walker get frogmarched or doesn't he?

Convicted of stealing over fifty thousand dollars from funds intended for veterans.
How low can he go? No plea bargain in this case.

Fantastic story, barely a sustained headline. Is this odd, is this strange? No it has slipped out and is, perhaps, destine to be off the radar. I get a knot in my neck when this crap happens no matter who might be held accountable.

Now wouldn't it be interesting if Kelly R. (Not R. Kelly) decides to renege on her plea bargain?

Maybe she could get a Waukesha County judge to quash the entire case against her.

Sentencing for former Walker aide could be delayed

The upcoming sentencing for a former aide to Gov. Scott Walker may be postponed so the aide can testify in another case early next month.

Darlene J. Wink pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges of working on a political campaign while she was supposed to be doing her county job for Walker, then the Milwaukee County executive.


The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.
