The Milwaukee County D-A's wants to bolster charges against a former aide to Scott Walker, back when he was head of the county. The Journal Sentinel reports prosecutors want to amend the criminal complaint against Kelly Rindfleisch who is accused of doing campaign work for then-Lt. Governor Candidate Brett Davis while on the county dime. A-D-A Bruce Landgraf wants to add email evidence which he says shows a plan to intentionally campaign while on county hours, rather than it being innocent mistakes, as some have claimed. Landgraf wants the correspondence to support previous misconduct charges or perhaps add more counts. Rindfleisch's attorney wants the emails suppressed citing privacy violations as the Gmail and yahoo accounts were part of her personal communications with others including her family and pastor. She has a pre-trial hearing July 15th with a trial slated for October.
