Among the revelations that came out of the multiple felony charges filed against former Scott Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch was the assertion by Tom Nardelli, then-Milwaukee County Executive Walker’s chief of staff, that he didn’t even know Rindfleisch was hired to work in Walker’s office or for what reason she was hired until she showed up for work.

So if Tom Nardelli, who in his role as chief of staff would have been County Executive Scott Walker’s right hand man, didn’t hire Kelly Rindfleisch and wasn’t aware she was hired to work for Walker, then who the h-e-double hockeysticks hired Kelly Rindfleisch?

The question of who hired Kelly Rindfleisch to work for County Executive Scott Walker is a question that needs answering, because that answer will shed a lot of light on why Kelly Rindfleisch was hired to work for Walker.

    I thought I read somewhere Tim Russell hired her?

    Anon’s right–the complaint says Russell hired her.

    Not really sure what the hiring protocol is, but I wouldn’t think that Russell alone would have that kind of discretion, normally.

      There’s also the logistics of it….how does the outgoing Deputy Chief of Staff hire his replacement? Shouldn’t that decision be left to his boss (or bosses, in this case)?

      If Tim Russell did in fact hire Kelly Rindfleisch, that tells me a lot about how little oversight Scott Walker actually provided over his subordinates in the County Executive’s office.

      • folkbum says:

        Or, rather, how much oversight. Nardelli, as the career pol, knew how to run an office, and was not a bad choice. Russell ran the campaign–at least, the shadow campaign run from just outside Walker’s door.
