MILWAUKEE - A former aide to current Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County Executive was to head into a courtroom on Wednesday.

Kelly Rindfleisch is one of two ex-Walker aides charged with illegal campaigning.

The charges have come from a John Doe investigation that the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office has conducted.

Prosecutors say Rindfleisch sent more than 1,000 fundraising e-mails for Walker while on the clock, working for the county.
