Walker Chief of Staff Keith Gilkes to leave…recall on Walker’s mind

In a statement released on the same morning he signed the Wisconsin Presidential Primary change into law, Scott Walker announced the departure of Chief of Staff, and former Foley and Lardner attorney Keith Gilkes. Gilkes will return to his medical consulting firm, Champion Group, LLC. Gilkes was also the campaign manager for “Friends of Scott Walker” during the gubernatorial campaign.

Gilkes’ departure comes amidst a flurry of activity as November 5 approaches (the earliest date for launching a recall effort), and the John Doe Investigation which has already reached several key Walker Aides from his tenure as Milwaukee County Executive. The resignation will allow Gilkes to continue acting as a campaign manager for Walker during a seemingly imminent recall drive.

Seems that Walker’s got recall on his mind…
