Rindfleisch Makes A Deal
Kelly Rindfleisch took a deal yesterday for her part in the John Doe investigation, thus avoiding a Scott Walker court appearance. Wisconsin Republicans breathed a sigh of relief...perhaps a bit to early.
Rindfleisch pled guilty to one felony charge in return for what - we do not yet know. She will avoid jail time, but will be a convicted felon - not a small admission.
Some are saying she fell on her sword for her old boss, but the Siren doesn't agree. The prosecution had her dead to rights on the felony charges - they didn't need a plea to cook her goose. We think they may have gotten something juicer in return.
The plea deal should be announced Thursday, so stay tuned.
