Ha!  The still scrambling to delay her trial Kelly Reindfleisch got a delay in her trial denied again for the second time this week.

It was only Monday of this week when the judge in her trial denied a delay which I diaried here.  Her laywer tried to get the appeals court to delay her trial, but today they denied that request.

Kelly M. Rindfleisch had asked the Appeals Court to halt her misconduct case while it considers whether Judge David Hansher improperly denied her motion to suppress email evidence in the case. She is accused of doing campaign work while at her job as deputy chief of staff to Walker in 2010, when he was Milwaukee County executive.

The Appeals Court said Rindfleisch had not shown good cause to suspend her case, but also said it would seek to issue a ruling in advance of her Oct. 15 trial.

She went to the appeals court to try to suppress email evidence (the most damning evidence prosecutors have) which were obtained through the execution of mutliple computers and seizing of personal computers of former Walker aides.

Her trial is scheduled to begin October 15.  The appeals court has said it will try to make a decision about the email evidence prior to the start of that trial.

Remember, these are top aides to Scott Walker who have been indicted on misconduct in office (doing political work on the taxpayers time and in taxpayer facilities) and her trial is the first that will start.  Other defendants have successfully delayed the start of their trials until after the November elections so the taint of corruption won't rub off on Republicans running for office.  Tim Russell, former chief of staff to then County Executive Scott Walker has gotten his delays by changing lawyers (he's currently on his 5th with his trial scheduled for December).

Important to remember is that there are 35 people on the potential witness list including Gov. Scott Walker.  I can't wait for the trial to begin and information on the extent of the illegal activities in Walkers office to come out.

Recently, prosecutors have asked for (and received) information on the Governors Office and hop staff there as the nearly 2 year old John Doe Probe widens.  There is a federal component under investigation by the FBI.

Solidarity.

PS:  Added laugh for all of you.  Kelly Reindfleisch is arguing that the emails should be suppressed because of her right to privacy!  Hahahahaha!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
