Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following Tuesday's guilty plea of Scott Walker aide Darlene Wink for doing illegal fundraising and political work on Walker's behalf.

"The guilty plea by a Scott Walker aide, who is cooperating with the ongoing John Doe probe, is the clearest evidence yet of the culture of corruption built to benefit Scott Walker on his crooked path from Milwaukee to Madison. In the coming weeks and months we will learn more about what Scott Walker knew and when he knew it. This much is clear: No governor in modern times has been so closely linked to political corruption and today's guilty plea punctuates that. The people of Wisconsin have every right to be afraid that Walker has brought this criminal culture with him to Madison."
