Journalists and opponents of Wisconsin governor and possible Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker on Wednesday were poring over some 28,000 pages of newly released documents connected to a criminal investigation into a former Walker aide. The documents involve Kelly Rindfleisch, deputy chief of staff to Walker while he was Milwaukee County executive, who is appealing her conviction for misconduct in public office. A state appellate judge ordered the documents unsealed at the request of news organizations. Walker, who has not been charged with any wrongdoing in the investigation, is running for re-election as governor in 2014 against Democratic businesswoman Mary Burke, and is emerging as a possible candidate for president in 2016.
