Former Walker aides charged in investigation

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Two ex-aides to Gov. Scott Walker while he was Milwaukee County executive face charges of doing political fundraising while working on county time.

Kelly Rindfleisch was charged Thursday with four felony counts of misconduct in office. She was deputy chief of staff for Walker before he became governor in 2011.

She's charged with spending significant time raising funds for Brett Davis, an unsuccessful GOP candidate for lieutenant governor in 2010.

Darlene Wink faces two misdemeanor counts of political solicitation by a public employee. She was Walker's constituent services coordinator.

They are the latest charges filed in connection with a secret probe by the Milwaukee County District Attorney. Three others with ties to Walker were charged earlier this month.

Neither Rindfleisch nor Wink immediately returned messages left by The Associated Press.
