Gov. Scott Walker has been subpoenaed to testify in the trial of his former aide, Kelly Rindfleisch.
WKOW-TV in Madison reports that a subpoena has been served on Walker’s attorney, Michael Steinle and was filed with Milwaukee County Judge David Hanscher. The document was submitted to the courts Friday.
Rindfleisch is accused of using county time to complete campaign work for a Republican who lost the lieutenant governor race in 2010, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. Rindfleisch has pleaded not guilty to four felony counts of misconduct in office.
Authorities say Rindfleisch committed misconduct while working her government job as deputy chief of staff for Walker, who was then Milwaukee County executive, WKOW-TV reports.
Rindfleisch is one of five individuals going to trial in fall associated with the ongoing John Doe investigation. The investigation has resulted in 15 felony indictments so far. The first trial is expected to begin Monday.
Barring a last-second plea deal, a jury will be picked to hear the case of 62-year-old Kevin Kavanaugh, who is charged with embezzlement and four counts of theft by fraud, according to WTAQ.com.
