During the sentencing hearing in which Kelly Rindfleisch, a former aide to then-Milwaukee County Executive, and now-Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 3 years probation for illegal campaigning, Milwaukee County Assisstant District Attorney Bruce Landergraf dropped a giant bombshell, in the form of a 65-minute presentation in which Landergraf detailed how Scott Walker had regular meeting with his 2010 gubernatorial campaign staff and his Milwaukee County staff in order to ensure "good coordination" between the two.

WisPolitics has the full story, and here's the key part of it:

The political work Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf described included a group of aides that communicated daily.

The group included members of Walker's campaign such as campaign manager Keith Gilkes and spokeswoman Jill Bader along with county employees such as chief of staff Tom Nardelli, spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin, administration director Cindy Archer and Rindfleisch, according to email correspondence obtained by investigators.

In court, Landgraf said Walker adviser R.J. Johnson was also part of the group. But he said later in a short interview that Johnson was not.

Landgraf used a detailed power point presentation to implicate Walker and his aides in doing political work using county resources.

Looks like the John Doe probe leads right up to Scott Walker's doorstep, doesn't it?
