Kelly Rindfleisch, one of Governor Scott Walker’s former aids, has pleaded guilty to one count of felony misconduct in office in a deal with prosecutors.
Rindfleisch was Walker’s deputy chief of staff when he was the Milwaukee County executive in 2010. Prosecutors accused Rindfleisch of working on Republican Brett Davis’ lieutenant governor campaign on county time.
In a deal reached with the Milwaukee County assistant district attorney, three other felony counts against Rindfleisch were dropped. The assistant district attorney also agreed to recommend Rindfleisch be sentenced to jail and probation rather than prison and promised not to seek restitution.
