Tough Sentencing In Walker Doe Case Reveals Double-Standard
One of Scott Walker's lower-level appointees during the Milwaukee County Executive years is going to prison for two years for stealing money from a charity.
Tim Russell, a higher-ranking Walker appointee, has pleaded guilty to similar thievery and is being recommended for a sentence of two-and-a-half-years.
And let's be clear: their behavior was reprehensible.
But another higher-ranking Walker appointee - - former Milwaukee County Deputy Executive Chief of Staff Kelly Rindfleisch - - got only six months for doing campaign work on public time in Walker's office on behalf of the candidacy of Brett Davis, then a state legislator and Walker's choice for Lt. Governor.
That's certainly a form of stealing - - from taxpayers - - so why the differential in sentencing?
Note that Rindfleisch, also a former Walker Deputy Chief of Staff, did her campaign work on a secret email system set up in Walker's office suite - - by Russell.
For which Russell was not charged.
And why is Brett Davis still Walker's Medicaid chief?
Part of the bargains?
You got it Ron. Kelly gave them a treasure trove, it is quite clear.
I want to know why these Operation Freedom donations just happened to come almost entirely from GOP politicians and supporters. Seems unusual for an allegedly non-partisan "support the troops" event, isn't it?
