о тёмном прошлом

Крутой Уокер техасский рейнджер висконсинский губернатор, как некоторые могли уже слышать, будет, возможно, претендовать на кандидатуру от республиканской партии на президентских выборах 2016. Понятное дело, что этот отрадный факт привлекает к его персоне повышенное внимание, хоть, конечно, и не в масштабах Криса Кристи. Сразу всплыло, что по поводу его дел на предыдущей должности Milwaukee County executive и предвыборной губернаторской кампании идёт судебное расследование, более того, кое-кто из его сотрудников уже присел.

Вчерашнего дня в рамках вышеупомянутого расследования был судебным распоряжением открыт доступ к двадцати семи тысячам емейлов, а там, понятное дело, всякое -- и, главное, замешаны не только стрелочники, но и сам.

Мы, однако, всякую коррупцию и мухлёж с предвыборными делами оставим за скобками, в наше время (да чего уж там, в любое другое время тоже) этим никого не удивишь. Обратим внимание лишь на нарытый в той самой переписке эпизод из несколько другой оперы:

Scott Walker Ordered Doctor Fired Because She Was Once A Thong Model
Amanda Terkel | 2/19/2014 |[ via Huffington Post ]

WASHINGTON -- In April 2010, Scott Walker and his staff realized they had a potential problem on their hands that would require them to quietly fire a woman who appeared to be completely competent at her job. The issue was that she had what they perceived to be a "checkered" past: She used to be a thong model.

The revelation was contained in an email exchange between Walker, who was then Milwaukee county executive and is now Wisconsin's Republican governor, and Thomas Nardelli, who at the time was his chief of staff. On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals released more than 27,000 pages of documents that were part of the now-closed secret "John Doe" investigation into Walker's time as county executive. So far, six of his former aides and associates have been convicted in connection with the case.

Walker learned about the problematic former thong model on April 5, 2010, when Nardelli emailed him about a woman who was hired as a doctor at the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, which provides treatment for mental illness, substance use disorders and intellectual disabilities.

Nardelli said that the medical director had "failed to Google or MySpace" her, and it was "recently discovered that she has a checkered past and has done some modeling work."

"It isn't pornographic," wrote Nardelli, "but it is quite suggestive (I'm told - I don't know her name). He [sic] apparently models thongs and wasn't forthright in sharing that with staff prior to her hire as an hourly paid MD at [Behavioral Health Division]."

He added that Behavioral Health Division leadership was looking at how to "release her without much fanfare" because John Chianelli, who was then the director of the division, was "concerned about having her on staff and subsequently having her Googled by staff only to learn of her 'other life' out side of her medical work. Apparently she's competent, but even the Medical Director is dismayed that she has a varied life style outside of her medical profession."

In response, Walker replied, "Get rid of the MD asap."

Tonya Simpson, a spokeswoman for BHD, said she was not able to confirm the woman's employment status without knowing her name. Walker's campaign did not reply when asked whether the woman was ultimately fired.
