Tim Russell, a top aide of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, was arrested for stealing money from a military charity fund for families of Wisconsin soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. John Nichols joined MSNBC’s The Ed Show to explain this investigation’s impact on Walker, who is facing a possible recall election. “Even if he’s not personally tied to the wrongdoing,” says Nichols, “he seems to have very bad judgment in the people he hires and trusts.”
