"We can't afford another story like this one. No one can give them any reason to do another story."The revelation that Scott Walker's inner circle was responsible for setting up a secret e-mail-computer system that was used to conceal illegal fundraising is a predictable outcome from this extremist and secretive bunch that literally locked the doors to the people's house of Wisconsin, the state capitol.
There is no commitment to representative democracy from this gang facing recall. That's why they feel no need to abide by Wisconsin Open Meeting laws, and feel entitled ordering the arrest of opposition representatives who try to gain entry into their own offices like in the Winter-Spring of 2010.

"This was a shadow government meant to further the political career of Scott Walker," said Graeme Zielinski, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. "All of them knew what was right and what was wrong, and they chose the crooked path."
Walker says he didn't know. Few take his assurances at face value anymore.
Scott Walker Email to Aide Tim RussellWhat did Walker mean in his e-mail on the secret system in which he says, "We can't afford another story like this one. No one can give them any reason to do another story."
Clearly by mentioning 'laptops' Walker is aware of the illegal scheme to do campaign work in the government office with campaign laptops and on a private campaign network.
The complaint also details how Rindfleish did fundraising for Lt. Gov. candidate Brett Davis, which the complaint states 'persons associated with the Friends of Scott Walker campaign committee generally favored Brett Davis over other candidates for the office of Lieutenant Governor.'
Here's the kicker, though: Even though Rindfleish has been under the investigative cross hairs for months, the Walker campaign had kept her on the pay roll up until a week ago!
Speaking of keeping people on the pay roll, guess who was Brett Davis' campaign manager aka the guy that was helping coordinate all this illegal activity out of Walker's government office? The governor's current spokesperson, Cullen Werwie. - Uppity Wisconsin
Wisconsin citizens might be more assured had Walker written, 'What we are doing is wrong. This whole secret system is wrong and should not have been set-up in the first place; our commitment is to serve Milwaukee and Wisconsin and not Scott Walker.'
The Walker campaign has hired former U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic to respond to the request [subpoenaed emails by John Doe prosecutors], paying his firm nearly $110,000 over the past year, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
