MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A former aide to Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee county executive has appealed her conviction of misconduct in office to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Kelly Rindfleisch filed the appeal on Friday. It comes after a state appeals court on a 2-1 vote upheld her conviction last month.
Rindfleisch was one of six people convicted as a result of a now-concluded John Doe investigation focusing on activities in Walker’s county executive office. Walker was never charged.
Rindfleisch pleaded guilty to one felony count of misconduct in office for doing campaign work while at her government job. Rindfleisch argues on appeal that evidence against her that investigators obtained in her emails should have been suppressed because she argues they were obtained during an unconstitutional search.
