Sheriff's Department Gathers Kempinski Records...
JSOnline and the print edition of the Journal Sentinel have an article by Don Behm discussing a search warrant that was used to pick up records that included campaign finance reports and receipts. According to that article, some 30 documents were removed from the Village Hall on Friday, November 7th.
A search of the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access site shows that Case Number 2008GF000978 was filed against Thomas Kempinski on November 7th in Branch 3 of the Washington County Circuit Court with Judge David Resheske named as the Responsible Official.
The affidavit requesting the search warrant alleged that some of the campaign documents had been altered.
I had looked at the campaign finance file of President Kempinski some time ago, following the resignation of Trustee James Langer from his position on the Kempinski campaign, and noted that pages had been altered using correction fluid and questioned whether or not this was permissible given that the original documents didn't appear in the file at that time.
It is unfortunate that innocent parties will likely be involved as this is unraveled, but that appears to have been felt to be necessary by officials in order to get to the truth.
I suspect that involved parties may be unable to comment, but, if that is not the case, we would welcome any 'guest blogs' on this subject so long as the individual(s) is/are willing to identify themselves.
