Walker's administration director Cynthia Archer wrote to aide Kelly Rindfleisch, Archer said, "Consider yourself now in the 'inner circle.' I use this private account quite a bit to communicate with SKW and Nardelli. You should be sure you check it throughout the day," she wrote, referring to Walker. So was Archer just bragging or did Walker know about and use the secret email system while he was working as county executive?
The emails are also embarrassing to the governor on another level. In two separate emails, Nardelli shares a racially charged joke and Rindfleisch comments positively on another racial joke. This comes in the wake of revelations involving racially charged statements by two state government aides.
Walker needs to talk, but apparently he won't right away: His office said Walker won't be taking media questions Thursday; he's traveling to Washington, D.C., and won't return until Monday. The longer he dodges questions, the more he undercuts his reputation as a straight-shooter. There are questions that need answering that only the governor can answer. The people of Wisconsin deserve those answers.
WI has a cherished reputation for clean and open government, therefore, I believe and certainly agree the people deserve these answers - do you not agree?
