Is the investigation getting closer to Walker?

As Wisconsin job-killer Gov. Scott Walker becomes irrelevant, the criminal investigation into people surrounding his campaign seems to draw closer to him. Cognitive Dissidence advises us to stock up on popcorn because things are starting to get good. Here's the update:
Darlene Wink, who had already pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal campaigning during the time she worked for Scott Walker while he was Milwaukee County Executive, was in court on Tuesday for her sentencing hearing...
  • Wink was in frequent contact with Team Walker, helping out with Walker's campaign during work hours and from her county office.
  • We also know that the DA is planning on using Wink as a witness against someone in Walkersha County.
  • While the only known defendant in Walkersha County is Brian Pierick, there is no clear reason to tie Wick to Pierick or vice versa.
  • We have reason to suspect that Walker's campaign is in Walkersha County.
When you put all those facts together, I don't think it would be a large leap of faith to conclude that there is a strong possibility that there will be more shoes dropping soon, and that these shoes will be landing on the heads of Walker's campaign staffers, as opposed to the clandestine campaign he was running from the Milwaukee County Courthouse.
And just for the fun of it, let's pile on Walker by quoting blogger Charles Pierce, who calls Walker
"the google-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage their midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin."
