Walkergate: Tim Russell's Expensive Lesson

As advertised, Tim Russell, former aide to then Milwaukee County Executive was in court Friday to learn how much restitution he would have to pay for the money he had stolen from one of Walker's campaign stunts disguised as a veterans fund as well as from two candidates campaigns.

The grand total that Russell has to pay back is $26,613.04.  The court gave him
credit for having already paid back some $3000 of it, leaving him with being in arrears for nearly $24,000.

And for those who are interested, he is currently being housed in the Winnebago Correctional Institute and won't be released any earlier than January 21, 2015.

I hope for his sake that Russell has learned that crime does not pay, that greed is not good and that if you cozy up to weasels like Scott Walker, they will set you up for a fall.

And I sincerely hope that the taxpayers, who will have to pay for Russell's every need for the next two years, at a minimum, have learned that you just cant trust Walker or anyone that is his buddy.
