State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary.

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Former Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch was sentenced this afternoon to six months in jail. And she was put on three years of probation for doing campaign work on the taxpayers’ dime.

The 44-year-old Rindfleisch said she did what was best for the taxpayers – but Milwaukee County Circuit Judge David Hansher disagreed, saying she committed a serious offense.

The judge said Rindfleisch knew it was illegal to do campaign work for Republican lieutenant governor candidate Brett Davis in 2010, when she was supposed to be working as Walker’s deputy chief-of-staff in the Milwaukee County executive’s office.

Hansher said Rindfleisch did not have to go to jail until her appeals are exhausted. She was one of five former Milwaukee County aides and associates charged with crimes connected with Walker’s tenure as county executive.

Walker himself has not been implicated.
