Scott Walker may not have been officially named ‘John Doe’ in a pair of Wisconsin investigations into abuses during his multiple tenures in power, but his aides could safely be called another name or two.

Newly disclosed emails from a trove of Walker insider communiqué reveals brutally racist jokes and demographic bias suited more for a skinhead than a public official.

From the Journal Sentinel:

n April 2010, Walker’s former deputy chief of staff Kelly Rindfleisch received an emailed joke from a friend about someone whose dogs supposedly qualified for welfare because they are “mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddys are.”

Rindfleisch wrote back: “That is hilarious. And so true!”

The emails are around four years old but were disclosed for the first time Wednesdayas part of an appeal by Rindfleisch of her conviction for campaigning while being paid to do work for Milwaukee County taxpayers.

For background on what is the second investigation into Walker’s conduct and staff, read this.

Sadly, Rindfleisch is not the only Walker chief of staff to have a light shined on their more bigoted side. Walker’s right hand during the Milwaukee County days, Thomas Nardelli, has been exposed too. He even used comic sans (see image above).
