Scott Walker.<p>Kelly Rindfleisch was convicted last year of using her government job to do illegal campaign work. At the time, Walker was the Milwaukee County executive.<p>The emails paint a picture of constant coordination between Walker's county office and his 2010 gubernatorial campaign.

Scott Walker survived a recall election after an epic battle with unions that gave him folk-hero status with many conservatives. Some political observers now consider him a presidential contender.<p>But Walker is downplaying that talk, even as he takes steps that hint at national ambition.<p>Although the state Legislature hasn't yet passed his latest budget, Walker is already touring the state on a victory lap.
