What Did Scott Walker Emails Say About Rebecca Kleefisch? “YUK”

February 22, 2014

This is too rich for words.

Rindfleisch herself was illegally campaigning for Kleefisch’s rival Brett Davis while working as Walker’s deputy chief of staff. She pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to six months in jail.

On March 2, 2010, Rindfleisch wrote to Keith Gilkes, who was running Walker’s gubernatorial campaign: “I’m REALLY beginning to dislike [Kleefisch].”

On March 16, Rindfleisch’s “dislike” had turned to disgust. She wrote to a fellow campaigner for Davis: “She makes me sick.”

Gilkes himself was no fan of Kleefisch. On June 30, he wrote to Rindfleisch: “We are not touching anything to do with Kleefisch — she is radioactive and not worth the time. Brett should work on Mayor [David] Ross and turn it into a two person race to kick her ass.”

On March 15, Kathleen Kiernan, who was associated with the Davis campaign, wrote: “YUK…. I cannot see how anyone can take this woman seriously.”

Another woman working on Davis’ campaign wrote: “tell you what, she could be a one-woman circus that’s for sure!”

Throw in other put-downs from Rindfleish — like a reference to the “Kleefisch debacle” — and you get the sense of a woman who earned little respect among Walker insiders.

    Kleefisch has a definite Stepford-wife vibe.
