At The Heart Of The Email Dump: Walker's All-Consuming Ambition...

Is this reality about who knew what, when and with whom, or:

When the dust settled, one emailer is now Governor, the other's a convicted felon.

As Milwaukee County Executive, Scott Walker was on the secret email system that has earned his then-Deputy Chief of Staff Kelly Rindfleisch a felony misconduct conviction for campaign work in service to him on public time - - the same Kelly Rindfleisch who accompanied Walker on a fund-raising trip even after her being charged.

After all, if you honestly "lived" transparency, as Walker had claimed, why would you use a secret email system?

Hence, the Nixon analogy.

Why would you treat the death of a county mental patient as a political problem to be "buried," as the record show, until after the election?

Call it the Lie of Compassionate Conservatism. It's really all about ambition and power.

Corruption and blind ambition, sure. But reading The Progressive Magazine's reporting, I am most repulsed by a bunch of provincial racists, anti-Semites and hicks.

At least I can say I am reading the beginning of the end of Scott Walker's 24-year career in politics. These are repulsive people.

MAL- This is who they are- amoral scumbags who only care about tactics, politics, and how much power and money they can grab from it. And anyone that votes GOP better recognize it.

I highly recommend reading Charlie Pierce's "Triumph of the Ratf*ckers." It explains Walker and the people that surround him very well.
