    Wrt to the email to Russell,

    I can only see the following two scenarios:

    1) Wink told Walker the prior evening of the secret network and that Russell was configuring her and Rindfleisch's laptops to connect to it for political usage. Thus, Walker knows of the network the day the Wink story breaks and then instructs all parties involved to shut it down (informally using the campaign email system). Oddly enough, both Rindfleisch and Russell keep their jobs.

    2) Walker knew Russell had set up the black network and configured Wink's and Rindfleisch's PCs to talk on it (as well as Walker's Blackberry) prior to the news breaking on 14MAY. That is how he knew to contact Russell and inform him to shut the system down. That is also how he knew to CC Rindfleisch on the email. This scenario has Walker knowing and approving of the system prior to word getting out and indicates that only he, Russell, Wink, and Rindfleisch knew about it (assuming there isn't anybody else CCed on that email).

    •  Can you extend this back to 2010? (0+ / 0-)

      I seem to remember that at a touchy moment in the election when it looked like Walker would not be elected, Rindfleisch "found" some 2500 votes that had been "misplaced," allowing the win.

      As I write I question my memory, but would welcome any clarification. My sense is that acts of an illegal kind fit the operating procedure of this organized gang.
