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

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.”]

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

    2. Jukesgrrl

      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.

      1. Bonzos_Bed_Time

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

  1. freakishlywrong

    These people, they do it! And they do it as part of their high-compensation public jobs, paid for with your tax money.

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

    1. genxr

      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!

          1. horsedreamer_1

            I'm still waiting for my college writing prof to libel me in the campus quarterly for alumni and current students's parents by comparing me to Ashley Todd.

      1. Eve8Apples

        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.

      2. Jukesgrrl

        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.

    2. baconzgood

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

        1. baconzgood

          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.

          1. baconzgood

            That guy's a looser. I'd eat him for breakfast and make him run outta the office crying like a little bitch before lunch. They don't call it "Show-Friends" son. Show buisness!

    3. glamourdammerung

      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.

  3. Come here a minute

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

      1. horsedreamer_1

        They allow it because it saves them bigger headaches.

        Snark in ones n' zeroes is much preferable to Molotovs.

  4. starfanglednut

    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?

    1. keepem_sikanpor

      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.

  5. John Birf Society

    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?

      1. Pristine_ODummy

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

    1. horsedreamer_1

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

      1. horsedreamer_1

        Empuje? Isn't that Spanish?

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

      2. baconzgood

        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.

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

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

      1. Pristine_ODummy

        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.

  6. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    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.

    1. pdiddycornchips

      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?

      1. Beowoof

        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.

      2. Pristine_ODummy

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

  7. weejee

    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?

          1. weejee

            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.

          2. glamourdammerung

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

            I had all of my posts go to moderation one day, then it "fixed" itself, so I know the system is goofy at times.

        1. keepem_sikanpor

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

    1. tihond

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

      1. horsedreamer_1

        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 think it's horrible the way the press is railroading our Beloved Leader Walker, who has brought nothing but prosperity and whore diamonds to the Great State of Wisconsin.

    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…

  9. johnnyzhivago

    Seriously, this reminds me that I need to talk to the finance people at the Bilderberg Group to find out why that raise they promised me hasn't come in yet. I mean, sheez, it's paid in Masonic Shekels, not even dollars.

  10. yrbmegr

    A strong government is needed to enforce laws, provided we still have those. If we don't have any more laws, then please disregard this comment.

    1. horsedreamer_1

      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.

  11. ThundercatHo

    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.

  12. Goonemeritus

    Most people I give the benefit in of the doubt to but in this case I will be going to church to light a candle for a speedy conviction. Any one know who is the patron Saint of maximum sentences?

    1. Chichikovovich

      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.

        1. Chichikovovich

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

  13. ttommyunger

    "…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….

  14. owhatever

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

  15. horsedreamer_1

    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".

  16. KeepFnThatChicken

    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.

  17. ManchuCandidate

    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.

    "Uh, so my check is in the mail, right?"

  18. Indiepalin

    I'm being paid a fortune by Soros to post wacky comments on Breitbart but you don't see ME bragging about it.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      You don't need to brag. We see that negative p you didn't collect here. You must really be pissing them off. Good work.

  19. thefrontpage

    My name is Scott Walker, and I approved this comment on this website.

    Paid for by Scott Walker For Governor.

  20. Tundra Grifter

    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.

    Walker wasn't supposed to use real people to blog for him!

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

    And, yes, it is raining in Mumbai. Why do you ask?

  21. WhatTheHolyHeck

    Blogging schmogging. What I really want is to see in her Sent Mail folder is a message with an Excel spreadsheet attachment containing supreme court election returns.

  22. Toomush_Infer

    See people can be anybody on the internet! – 15 year old girls in search of older men, Koch supporters,….Anybody! And now, getting paid for it….what a great country!…

  23. cheetojeebus

    oh god damn it, now i'm really confused. if you can't trust anonymous posters on the internet who can you trust? This guy's admin is starting to read like John La Carre filtered through the Wasilla Grifter's diary.

  24. Negropolis

    These people are so sad, so very sad. I don't have snark at this exact moment. This is the height of pettiness, this astroturfing, and really what is the purpose of it? You don't convince people of anything on newspaper messageboards. Who the hell has read a messageboard and thought "yeah, I'm totally voting for the other guy, this time"? No one.
