Former Walker Aide Pleads Guilty in Wisconsin

As if Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker didn't have enough problems. One of his former aides, Kelly M. Rindfleisch, pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of felony misconduct in public office in a plea bargain. She has been charged with four felony counts for spending government time working as a fundraiser for then-lieutenant governor candidate Brett Davis. Rindfleisch was Walker's deputy chief of staff when he was the Milwaukee County executive before his 2010 election to the governor's office.
