Thousands of documents involving ex-Walker aide to be released next week

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - We'll find out next week what ex-Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch didn't want us to know, as she appeals her conviction for illegal campaigning.

State appellate court officials said Thursday they will release 27,000 pages of e-mails, and over 430 other documents on Wednesday.

A judge ruled last week that Rindfleisch could not keep all of her evidence secret, as she appeals her circuit court conviction for illegally doing Republican campaign work while she was supposed to be working as an aide to Governor Scott Walker when he was the Milwaukee County executive.

She was given a six month jail sentence after she pleaded guilty in 2012.

Earlier this week, the Republican Walker said he didn't know if any e-mails he sent would be included in next week's release.

Rindfleisch could have had a month to challenge the release of individual e-mails which might have had personal information. Her attorney declined the offer, saying it wouldn't be enough time.
