Emails of Convicted Former Gov. Walker Aide to be Released

Created: 02/10/2014 9:47 PM WDIO.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Thousands of emails and other documents uncovered during a secret investigation into a former aide to Gov. Scott Walker will be released Feb. 19.

A state appeals court judge issued an order Monday setting the release date after Kelly Rindfleisch's attorney declined to review the emails to remove private information.

Rindfleisch's attorney Franklyn Gimbel also says he will not ask the Supreme Court to review whether the documents should be publicly released.

Rindfleisch was sentenced in 2012 to six months in jail after pleading guilty to doing campaign work for Republican lieutenant governor candidate Brett Davis while working for Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive.
