Boy, Gov. Scott Walker’s staffers just can’t stop breaking the law…
Nicole Tieman who resigned without explanation Friday as Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign spokeswoman has begun serving a 20-day sentence behind bars in Milwaukee County on a drunken-driving conviction.
Tieman, 25, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court to her second OWI offense, reversing her plea from a week earlier. Judge John Siefert sentenced Tieman to 20 days confinement starting no later than June 3, took away her driving privileges for a year and imposed a $950 fine.
She was granted work-release privileges to seek a job and to get alcohol or drug treatment.
Records show Tieman, who lives in Waukesha, was booked into the House of Correction in Franklin, formerly the County Correctional Facility-South, on Wednesday.
For those of you keeping track at home, Nicole Tieman is the sixth (by my count) close associate or staffer of Scott Walker’s to have been convicted of a crime. That’s quite a record, and not in a good way.
