Walkergate: Intermission

I don't have time to go into depth on the latest installment of Walkergate as being reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning.  I'll try to give you some insights that the paper missed tonight.

But a couple of things for now to digest as you read their report:

  • Now we know why Hiller left so suddenly
  • They really don't go into how cozy all these people are with each other
  • I'm really surprised they didn't go after what, at least to me, was the more sordid land deal regarding the county grounds
  • Remember, they save the big stuff for last and this thing isn't done yet


  1. Thanks, as always.

  2. Someone might want to look into the use of Federal Section 8 funds by the Milwaukee County Housing Department while it was run by the accused embezzler Tim Russell.

    I'm familiar with the operations of Section 8 programs and I know that it would be fairly easy to game the rents paid to well connected slumlords if one had a penchant for criminality.

    Perhaps the Feds are already on this one.

  3. Can you give us a clue as to what sordid land deal you are hinting at here for those of us following at home?

  5. So you write, "sordid land deal" before working on the facts.
