John Doe STILL OPEN

MADISON, Wis. (AP) –
Walker said on Tuesday that he hoped the so-called “John Doe” investigation would end as early as this week. But retired Waukesha County Judge Neal Nettesheim told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home Wednesday “that would be pure conjecture.

The judge overseeing the investigation into former aides of Gov. Scott Walker says the probe remains open.

Russell is the fourth Walker aide or associate convicted of misconduct in office as part of the ongoing John Doe investigation.

Walker’s former Deputy Chief of Staff Kelly Rindfleisch (far right) was sentenced in November to six months in jail and probation for doing political fundraising while at her county job.

Kevin Kavanaugh (second from left) was sentenced in December to two years in prison
after stealing more than $50,000 from Operation Freedom and other funds intended to benefit veterans and their families. Walker had appointed Kavanaugh to the county Veterans Service Commission.

Additionally, Walker’s constituent services director, Darlene Wink (second from right), was sentenced in January to one year’s probation for doing campaign fundraising in 2009 while working in her taxpayer-funded county job.

Brian Pierick,(third from right) was Tim Russell’s roommate and partner. He was charged ( with child enticement and exposing himself to a 17 year-old boy.

John Doe Investigation Continues bouncing from associate to associate

If we are defined by the company we choose, than the sooner Governor Walker is unseated as Governor of the State the better. Unfortunately he is too big to jail. If any business leader, educator, or board member were to be so deeply associated with the likes of those pictured above, they would be dismissed. Why is it that a governor is held to a different set of rules?

Walker is an emperor without clothes. The evidence presented in the course of the John Doe investigation has diminished any attraction to this man as a leader. Everyone knows that his County Executive office was just yards away from the secret email network that was used, on the tax payers dime, as a tool as he campaigned for governor. So we wait and wonder when the axe will fall.
