Recently revealed e-mails have embroiled Wisconsin’s embarrassment of a governor Scott Walker in about the same amount of controversy as is traditional for him. In 2010, Walker’s chief-of-staff forwarded a horridly racist e-mail to another staffer. The recipient of that e-mail, Kelly Rindfleisch, said in separate correspondence with a county official that “No one cares about crazy people.”
The Wednesday release of 27,000 pages of e-mails and other documents have been disastrous for Walker, who has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his involvement of the latest craze to end in the suffix “-gate.”
Walker joined Chris Wallace on FOX News to not answer for himself.
[box type=”shadow”]WALLACE: In one email that was released this week, your then chief of staff Thomas Nardelli, let’s put this up on the screen, writes campaign and county workers that you wanted to hold daily conference calls, “to review events of the day or of a previous or future day so we can better coordinate sound timely responses,” and in another e-mail county administrative director Cynthia Archer suggests that colleagues should use a private e-mail account. “I use this private account quite a bit to communicate with SKW,” that’s you, “and Nardelli, the former chief of staff.” Question: if county workers were doing nothing wrong, why should they be using a private e-mail account?
WALKER: Well, but that’s exactly to my point. you had a Democratic district attorney spend almost three years looking at every single one of those communications, interviewing people, talking to people and closed the case.
WALLACE: Did you have your own private e-mail account?
WALKER: It’s one of those where I point out district attorney has reviewed every single one of these issues.
WALLACE: But sir, you’re not answering my question.
WALKER: No, because I’m not going to get into 27,000 different pieces of information.[/box]
