MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker and some of his top State Capitol aides might be called as prosecution witnesses in the trial of a former Walker aide in Milwaukee County.
County prosecutors have filed a list of possible witnesses should a trial proceed against Kelly Rindfleisch.
The 43-year-old Rindfleisch is scheduled to stand trial October 15th on four felony charges of misconduct in office.
Prosecutors said she did political campaign work on county time when she was Walker’s deputy chief-of-staff when he was the county executive.
Authorities said a lot of her work involved Brett Davis’s failed campaign for lieutenant governor in 2010. Davis, a former GOP lawmaker, is now the state’s Medicaid director.
Walker and Davis are both on the prosecution’s list of 35 possible witnesses that was submitted Friday – along with Administration Secretary and former Assembly Speaker Mike Huebsch, current Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie, and the governor’s former chief-of-staff and campaign manager Keith Gilkes.
Walker spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster did not comment on Walker’s possible status as a prosecution witness.
A final pre-trial hearing in the Rindfleisch case is set for Monday. She’s one of five people charged in a long-running John Doe probe into Walker’s former Milwaukee County aides.
