Why Would Walker Put Staffer Fired For Misappropriating Money In Charge Of Veterans' Fund?

Bad judgement? Irrational loyalty? Living out "Dumb and Dumber?"

Walker and Russell are said to go back years to their days at Marquette: are we to presume Walker didn't know why Tim Russell lost his WHEDA position, or might need work, and why Russell might be available to handle some risky Walker office chores - - like setting up the secret email system for county and campaign operatives?

The WHEDA issue had been aired months ago at the MilwaukeeCountyFirst blog after disclosure by Milwaukee County Supervisor John Weishan, Jr.

He did it for the same reason that he hired a woman to work illegally on his campaign who had previously copped a plea for committing the same crime in the caucus scandal.

Because he is dim.

The question is: Is he just plain incompetent and naive or a crook?

Or else because they did EXACTLY what they were hired to do for Co. Exec. now Gov. Scott "We Considered Bringing in Thugs" Walker.
