Gov. Scott Walker Subpoenaed in Former Staffer's Trial

Former Walker staffer Kelly Rindfleisch is accused of using county time to complete campaign work for a Republican who lost the lieutenant governor race in 2010.

Gov. Scott Walker has been subpoenaed to testify in the trial of his former aide, Kelly Rindfleisch.

WKOW-TV in Madison reports that a subpoena has been served on Walker’s attorney, Michael Steinle and was filed with Milwaukee County Judge David Hanscher. The document was submitted to the courts Friday.

Rindfleisch is accused of using county time to complete campaign work for a Republican who lost the lieutenant governor race in 2010, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. Rindfleisch has pleaded not guilty to four felony counts of misconduct in office.

Authorities say Rindfleisch committed misconduct while working her government job as deputy chief of staff for Walker, who was then Milwaukee County executive, WKOW-TV reports.

Rindfleisch is one of five individuals going to trial in fall associated with the ongoing John Doe investigation. The investigation has resulted in 15 felony indictments so far. The first trial is expected to begin Monday.

Barring a last-second plea deal, a jury will be picked to hear the case of 62-year-old Kevin Kavanaugh, who is charged with embezzlement and four counts of theft by fraud, according to WTAQ.com.

Is there anything less sharp than a spoon? That would be Bren...

Apology accepted, John. Also, I try hard not to swear, and have no plans to kill anybody, unless it's required to defend my own or my families lives.

There are myriad objects less sharp than a spoon, Cow, so this new assertion is equally implausible as an insult or a discourse-advancing remark. I am enjoying this. ; )

Carbon Bigfuut - Peace, I am very happy to hear that...

Why was there not a news article written about the John Doe being closed after 2 years and clearing Walker??? There were multiple articles linking Walker to the John Doe over the past years. Barrett even made false accusations during the recall campaign.
