Obama Acorn Hats and Welfare Dogs: Racist Emails From Gov. Scott Walker’s Staff

Obama Acorn Hats and Welfare Dogs: Racist Emails From Gov. Scott Walker’s Staff

At some point, elected officials will catch on and learn that using a private email as opposed to a .gov address does not protect one’s emails during a criminal federal inquiry. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s aide sent a “time for some traffic problems” email from her Gmail account, obviously thinking that this would somehow shield her from investigation. And in an email dump relating to the investigation of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a dump of over 27,000 emails revealed that Walker’s  deputy chief of staff was all too giddy when responding to racist and offensive emails.

Here’s a a taste from New York Magazine:

In response to the welfare dog email, Rindfleisch wrote back: “That is hilarious. And so true!”

But it wasn’t just the jokes that have offended people since, as the Journal Sentinel reports,  Walker’s former deputy chief of staff Kelly Rindfleisch was the gift that just kept on giving:

In the unguarded emails, other vulnerable groups also came in for criticism from Rindfleisch. She predicted that news coverage of harm to patients at the Milwaukee County Mental Health Complex wouldn’t move voters because “no one cares about crazy people.”

The emails came to light on Wednesday but Gov. Walker’s office has not commented on the content of the emails.

Rindfleisch’s attorney said that the “emails aren’t relevant to her prosecution and should have never been taken by authorities or released to the public in response to lawsuits by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and other media.”

    As far as I’m concerned ALL white elected/selected officials should, at the very least, be considered suspect racists until proven otherwise. And it would take an awful lot of proof to convince me, that’s for sure. 🙂

    I taught my children who are grown now ; always assumes whites are racist until proven otherwise that way you can never be hurt or surprised; we’ve been in this country a long time and this something we’ve should’ve learned long ago!

    Why condemn the messenger if the message is true, namely BO and other  Black leaders are in fact incompetent, un-American,  disgraceful, and treasonous.
    President Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus are in the position and have the authority to at least make a recommendation to the House of Representatives that  Justice Clarence Thomas be impeached.  To date, President Barack Obama and the CBC have done absolutely nothing towards this end.  With this in mind President Barack Obama and the CBC are not fit to condemn a Clarence Thomas when:
    1.  President Obama and the CBC are doing nothing to use his or her influence to remove Clarence Thomas from the Supreme Court.
    2.  President Barack Obama, the CBC, other Black elected leaders and Black lawyers are just as treasonous because none of these individuals are stepping up to the plate to serve or to competently represent law abiding Black men, women, and children who have legitimate grievances that can be used to hold agents and officials accountable for violating the Constitutional rights of US born descendants of slavery.
    “Supreme Court rejects damages for innocent man who spent 14 years on death row” In a 5-4 ruling, justices overturn a jury verdict awarding $14 million to John Thompson, who had sued then-New Orleans Dist. Atty. Harry Connick Sr. because prosecutors hid a blood test that would have proved his innocence in a murder case.” By David G. Savage, Washington Bureau, March 30, 2011, Los Angeles Times
    Reporting from Washington — A bitterly divided Supreme Court on Tuesday tossed out a jury verdict won by a New Orleans man who spent 14 years on death row and came within weeks of execution because prosecutors had hidden a blood test and other evidence that would have proven his innocence.
    The 5-4 decision delivered by Justice Clarence Thomas shielded the New Orleans district attorney’s office from being held liable for the mistakes of its prosecutors. The evidence of their misconduct did not prove “deliberate indifference” on the part of then-Dist. Atty. Harry Connick Sr., Thomas said.
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg emphasized her disapproval by reading her dissent in the courtroom, saying the court was shielding a city and its prosecutors from “flagrant” misconduct that nearly cost an innocent man his life.
    “John Thompson spent 14 years isolated on death row before the truth came to light,” she said. He was innocent of the crimes that sent him to prison and prosecutors had “dishonored” their obligation to present the true facts to the jury, she said.
    In the past, the high court has absolved trial prosecutors from any and all liability for the cases they bring to court. The key issue in the case of Connick vs. John Thompson was whether the district attorney could be held liable for a pattern of wrongdoing in his office and for his failure to see to it that his prosecutors followed the law.
    In 1999, when all his appeals had failed on his conviction for the murder of a hotel executive, Thompson was scheduled to be put to death. But a private investigator hired by his lawyer found a blood test in the police lab that showed the man wanted for a related carjacking had type B blood, while Thompson’s was type O.
    Thompson had been charged with and convicted of an attempted carjacking near the Superdome as a prelude to charging him with the unsolved murder of a hotel executive.
    The newly revealed blood test spared Thompson’s life, and a judge ordered a new trial on the murder charge that had sent him to death row. His new defense lawyers found other evidence that had been hidden, including eyewitnesses reports. Bystanders reported seeing a man who was 6 feet tall with close-cropped hair running away holding a gun. Thompson was 5 feet 8 and had a bushy Afro.
    With the new eyewitness reports and other evidence that pointed to another man as the killer, Thompson was quickly acquitted of all the charges in a second trial. He won $14 million in damages in a civil suit against the district attorney.
    In rejecting the judgment, Justice Thomas described the case as a “single incident” in which mistakes were made. He said Thompson did not prove a pattern of similar violations that would justify holding the city’s government liable for the wrongdoing. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony M. Kennedy and Samuel A. Alito Jr. joined to form the majority.
    However, Thompson’s lawyers showed that at least four prosecutors knew about the hidden blood test. They also showed evidence of other, similar cases in New Orleans in which key evidence was concealed from defense lawyers.

    My dad use to say the exact same thing. He also use to say that Jim Crow laws in the south were a gift to poor white people because it gave them a sense of superiority over blacks on the same economic and educational rung on the latter.

    If President Barack Obama, the CBC, and/or other Black leaders truly stepped up to the plate to competently serve U.S . born Black men, women, and children like Hispanics, Koreans, Caucasians, Jews, etc., and/or other ethnic leaders definitely do to serve his or her communities…….
    ……Acorn diatribe, cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting our Black leaders as being “stupid/backwards/fools” being circulated by any Caucasian or anyone else would be meaningless, because acts and deeds to serve the Black community, would prove to the contrary.
    Koreans, Hispanics, Caucasians, Jews, Filipinos, etc., etc., own and control Banking institutions, Shopping Malls, Farming enterprises, Textile firms, Construction companies, manufacturing and engineering firms, etc., etc., to promote the prosperity of themselves and his or her specific ethnic communities, so much so, that sarcastic cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting his or her community as being “stupid, backwards, unsophisticated”, is meaningless, and won’t stop them from thriving or competently serving their respective ethnic communities.
    Sarcastic cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting anyone, or any community as being “stupid, backwards, and unsophisticated”, carry weight if the description has merit, which in far too many instances the depiction would have merit as this concerns charlatan sellout Black leaders such as, Barack Obama, Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, treasonous and blatantly inept university educated Black lawyers, etc., etc.
