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?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
