FBI Raids Computers of Koch-Monster Scott Walker’s Henchwoman

by Ken Layne

One day, we'll all piss on their graves, after they die rich and happy at age 112.Another of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s propagandists on the public payroll had her home and computers raided by the FBI and state police, on Wednesday. The “former top aide,” Cynthia A. Archer, is currently on “paid sick leave” but had been the deputy chief of Walker’s comically corrupt administration. What did all the G-men want with this Walker tool’s computers? And why had she passed one off on her neighbor, who happily handed it back to the FBI so they could do forensics on the hard drive? Oh, it’s all part of this sketchy Walker operation to have a bunch of his goons (on the government payroll, of course) flood blogs and websites with comments supporting Walker and his Kochian policies against the citizens of Wisconsin.

The Journal-Sentinel reports:

The raid on Archer’s home coincides with a John Doe investigation in Milwaukee County.

That probe was started last year after the Journal Sentinel reported that another Walker staffer who was being paid by Milwaukee County taxpayers to help citizens with county services was instead using her work time to post anonymous comments supporting candidate Walker on websites and blogs. As part of the investigation, authorities earlier seized the work computers of two former Walker staffers and executed a search warrant of one of their homes.

Archer, who also held the top staff position under Walker while he served as Milwaukee County executive, said as recently as Friday in an email to the Journal Sentinel that she was “not involved in any way in the John Doe investigation.”

Hahahah no, she wasn’t involved at all, we bet.

You ever make the mistake of clicking a new POLITICO article and seeing the immediate dozens of comments with blanket, idiotic support of whatever wingnut in the article? You ever wonder who actually types that inane halfwit propaganda? These people, they do it! And they do it as part of their high-compensation public jobs, paid for with your tax money. Perfect, isn’t it? [JS Online via "Matt N."]

Hey, this type of scheme worked for Richard Nixon, no?

DahBoner September 16, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Yup, Dubya sure got smarter than Nixon when he moved his henchmen right into the Vice President's office….

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:05 pm

Um … that wasn't Dubya's idea, toots. It was the henchman exercising his hench.

Jukesgrrl September 16, 2011 at 7:30 pm

It works until it doesn't work. But Americans, high on crack and their love for the E! star of the week, have very short … it think that thing's called a memory.

John Doe is always at his best when Exene is nearby.

Except "Milwaukee" is harder to sing than "Los Angeles"

Bonzos_Bed_Time September 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Scott gets confused about the whole "hating the idle rich" part of that song, too. The rest, no problem!

poncho_pilot September 16, 2011 at 2:34 pm

People get PAID to post insane shit on blogs during the workday!!! Where the hell is my paycheck Wonkette?

genxr September 16, 2011 at 2:17 pm

You're auditioning for the wrong part. Want some monies? Try this:

Scott Walker is awesome. He only wants what's best for the workers. He's fighting for your rights, against the unions which want to impose communism. And I'm just an average joe saying this, with no connections whatsoever. And he balanced the budget. Also. Union thugs beat me up! And carved a backwards "U" on my face! We need voter ID laws now! Why are we letting college students vote? I want my country back! Things were a lot simpler before we had liberals.

See how easy that is? Cha-ching!

baconzgood September 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Yeah but you have to scour youself all the time!

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Tee-hee "backward 'U'".

Eve8Apples September 16, 2011 at 2:55 pm

I can't bring myself to post that crap. I have standards. I'll stick to topless dancing at The Boom Boom Room and selling weed.

Uh … can we talk? Someplace, you know, quiet?

Jukesgrrl September 16, 2011 at 7:38 pm

Genxr, nice try, but WAAAAY too much correct spelling. And the proper use of apostrophes has gotta go. Good work on the "union thugs," though.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:07 pm

OK, so where the hell is YOUR paycheck, genxr?

Gratuitous World September 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm

if the 'top staff position' is relegated to commenting on blogs/articles, i'm curious about entry level job descriptions.

V572 T-Blow September 16, 2011 at 2:33 pm

"Entry level" in this case means the work is performed on your knees.

widestanceshakedown September 16, 2011 at 2:43 pm

And the elbows?

baconzgood September 16, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I get PAID to post insane shit….Actually I get paid while posting insane shit. You see my door has a lock.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Plus, you have an intern to do the real work.

baconzgood September 16, 2011 at 2:40 pm

I feel sorry for her today. Last night she tagged along with me to meet one of my high maintenance clients. Ron's a sexist jerk and the intern is…well quite fetching to say the least. Poor girl had to deal with him for 2 hours while we drank the deal done.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:51 pm

You should call yourself Don Draper, & the intern can be Peggy Olsen.

glamourdammerung September 16, 2011 at 6:09 pm

It is kind of funny though that Democrats running for office do not offer to pay posters, and one never sees companies posting for left wing trolls. It gives one the impression that conservatives really do not believe in that whole "marketplace of ideas" mantra.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Ya think?

glamourdammerung September 17, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Well, their behavior shows they believe that even if it was not true.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 10:27 pm

It was said, my friend, with tongue firmly in cheek.

Come here a minute September 16, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Anyone using government work time to post political comments on blogs is the lowest form of scum on earth. Present company excepted.

OC_Surf_Serf September 16, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Hell, I do this as part of my low-compensation corporate job…

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:21 pm

They allow it because it saves them bigger headaches.

Nixon finally got his silent majority — by faking it, of course, but that was the point.

starfanglednut September 16, 2011 at 2:09 pm

At least now that Walkers in office, she can be stripped of her collective bargaining rights and pension. That's some comfort, right? Will these staggeringly moronic people ever stop working against their own interests?

keepem_sikanpor September 16, 2011 at 6:24 pm

Hmm. I wonder if "administrator" will let 'if they only had a brain fly'? I suppose it's still too soon for the (r) word.

DahBoner September 16, 2011 at 2:09 pm

And how many visits to kochgobblers.com did they make?

John Birf Society September 16, 2011 at 2:09 pm

This is typical of the political use of the FBI by Obama. Walker is the most trustworthy governor in history. Thank God he has the strength to stand up for the common man against liberal tyranny.

Did I pass the audition, Mr. Koch?

weejee September 16, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Nicely done, but you need to floss as there are some pubes between your teeth.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:12 pm

That's what the pubes are *for,* weejee. Compensation for the fine Kochsucking talents exhibited, and all that.

I thought this was perfectly legal in Wisconsin as long as she kept the caps lock off.

That's what Brett Favre thought, too. But he forgot, he was in New Jersey when he finally got caught up.

genxr September 16, 2011 at 2:10 pm

She was posting to teh wonkette! Okay, which one of you is it?

I think she's currently known as Biden's Barbarians.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Empuje? Isn't that Spanish?

Definitely not one of Walker's minions. Prolly affiliated with Anchor Governor Susana Martinez or Basque Separatist Brian Sandoval.

baconzgood September 16, 2011 at 2:28 pm

You realize that that douche will get dozens of visits from all of us now…..That snark is like an onion. Well played Miss Taken.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 16, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I was just thinking that we finally have an explanation for Barb…., but she is too smart to be a Kochsucker.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Not just too smart but also having, apparently, a wildly cute and sexay husband. No need for the Kochs of the Kochs, if you get my drift.

The only people who could post such crap would have to be deeply self-loathing (since they're not-rich enough to have to take the job) or downright vile. And I venture to say, on the strength of minimal acquaintance, that Barb is neither.

Slim_Pickins September 16, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Down-fisting Troll, perhaps?

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:13 pm

I thought it was our favourite troll, Spanky.

Maybe we'll finally get to see the wonkette downfister's perp walk.

The judge's gavel is the ultimate banhammer.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 16, 2011 at 2:11 pm

I know we will find out the truth behind this after the days and days of coverage on FOX News, just like they have given that solar thingy.

pdiddycornchips September 16, 2011 at 5:17 pm

Yeah, Faux news is really trying to build this into a full blown scandal. How many billions were spent in Iraq on crony projects and outright bribes?

Beowoof September 16, 2011 at 6:39 pm

I would still like to know more about that C-130 with 12 Billion in cash on pallets that disappeared. Oh wait Faux is busy with the weapons of mass destruction that were all over the place.

Pristine_ODummy September 17, 2011 at 9:17 pm

$80 billion airdropped into the war zone of Baghdad during Paul "Jerry" Bremer's tenure, as revealed at a subsequent Congressional hearing.

DashboardBuddha September 16, 2011 at 2:13 pm

Some justice would be nice.

weejee September 16, 2011 at 2:13 pm

In another area of untoward censorship why when you enter the full name of one of our esteemed Wonketteers, G#PCrusher, does the dreaded Nazgûl, the administrator, delete the post?

GOPCrusher September 16, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Wait? What?

weejee September 16, 2011 at 3:48 pm

It's true GOP, if the O is put in G_PCrusher, the admin Nazgûl sends my post to timeout. It that ret@rded or what?

GOPCrusher September 16, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Didn't your mother warn you about running with the wrong crowd?

weejee September 16, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Post proudly, you have a handle that is banned in the posts.

PS, regards running and crowds Ma would remind me to make sure I wasn't the slowest, and to be sure that he who was (Pete) would never rat you out.

glamourdammerung September 16, 2011 at 6:07 pm

GOPCrusher, just posting your name to see if it works.

keepem_sikanpor September 16, 2011 at 6:37 pm

I just posted something with the (r) word and it was immediately deleted. Auto delete is like auto correct but without the funny.

No worry about that… Archer is a lesbian. Maybe some photos of Rebecca "I'm the next Christine O'Donnell" Kleefisch will show up.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:31 pm

They'll settle this dispute like men, then. Tammy Baldwin for the Left, Archer for the Right. Their butts will look like two poster-children fighting under a parachute.

I would also like to take this time to say that I am in no way bought and paid for by the Reelect Walker Campaign, though I could be if the price were right…

This is bad news for Lou Sarah.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Reminds me: we thought Lou Sarah was a sloppy transposition of her given name, Sarah Louise, when in fact the Lou is a reference to Lou Rawls, whose music soundtracked the future Duhv'nor's tryst with Glen Rice.

ThundercatHo September 16, 2011 at 2:19 pm

Leave this poor lady alone! She's just a hard-working public servant. Like the folks at the DMV who aren't allowed to tell the public that their voter ID's are free.

Haven't you gotten your big, big cheque from George Soros yet? You must have moved recently. Send the address change slip plus a form 557-K to Human Resources to claim back wages. And it probably couldn't hurt to email them and cc: payroll.

Excellent. Thanks.
Are they those big, big, photo-op checks? Because that would be cool.

Chichikovovich September 16, 2011 at 3:41 pm

Naw. 'Cause this is a big secret. Glenn Beck has been sniffing around. So they're, like, invisible cheques.

"…it’s all part of this sketchy Walker operation to have a bunch of his goons (on the government payroll, of course) flood blogs and websites with comments supporting Walker and his Kochian policies against the citizens of Wisconsin." Well, that's a relief! Here I was thinking there were actual private citizens out there who were that batshit crazy / ignorant. What? Wait….

She was busted for using her computer to pretend to be a Wonketeer. Another downfister bites the dust! Thanks, Feebs.

horsedreamer_1 September 16, 2011 at 2:26 pm

This story is blowing up. It's been getting (so-so) coverage from the local (Walker-endorsing (seriously; Journal-Sentinel endorsed Walker, over Barrett, even though the Jeff Wagners & Mark Bellings of the world would have you thinking the paper is left of Granma)) daily, & I imagine Wonkette big-timing them will only make them more likely to get ahead of the story. Can't have a national blog beat the boys on the street for a story.

Or maybe not. They still havn't given any ink to Paul Ryan's paid-admission "town-hall meetings".

KeepFnThatChicken September 16, 2011 at 2:31 pm

If only it were large enough to cover the $532m Solyndra fuckup.

In the near future, I can see her claiming to have been "hacked." Hate to say this, folks, but these stories aren't as sexy when Weiner's dick isn't involved.

Extemporanus September 16, 2011 at 2:31 pm

No wonder Wonkette does not allow comments.

ManchuCandidate September 16, 2011 at 2:36 pm

No. No. NO!! This is not happening. Scott Walker is the most honest, honorable, decent, wise and just human being ever. He has a 15" penis and is the greatest lover in the world. He can do NO WRONG!! He is not a paid whore of the Koch Brothers, but sees them as the greatest wisest men in the universe.

That was the beautiful thing about Ole Newt's millions of fake Twitter followers. They couldn't rise up like zombies and come back to haunt him.

Of course, this could have been out-sourced to India for a fraction of the cost.

It is probably a random IntenseDebate glitch. If someone makes an admin aware, it should be easy to fix.
