MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Former Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch has given up her effort to keep thousands of records secret about her criminal conviction for illegal campaigning.
Her attorney, Franklyn Gimbel, said Monday he would not appeal a court ruling from last week which ordered that Rindfleisch's government e-mails be made public.
On Friday, Gimbel turned down an appellate judge's offer to let Rindfleisch review her e-mails, and ask that specific personal records remain sealed. Judge Patricia Curley gave Rindfleisch 30 days to get that done -- and Gimbel said it was not worth the time or the expense to go over literally tens of thousands of documents.
Rindfleisch was given a six-month jail sentence for running a Republican campaign operation while she was employed by Governor Scott Walker when he was the Milwaukee County executive.
