Tim Russell, a former campaign and county aide to Gov. Scott Walker, was arrested by authorities on Thursday and charged with three theft counts as part of the ongoing John Doe investigation into Walker staffers, sources said.
Computer records show Russell was charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor count of theft. One source said the charges are tied to Operation Freedom, an annual military appreciation day held at the zoo.
In 2010, Walker’s county administration had asked prosecutors to investigate what had happened to $11,000 raised in 2007 for the event.
Russell’s attorney, Michael Maistelman, could not be immediately reached for comment.
Also charged Thursday was Brian Pierick, Russell’s longtime partner. Pierick was charged with one felony count of child enticement.
There’s so much FAIL and WRONG here that I hardly know where to start.
