Schultz Out at State Republican Party

According to RPW E.D. Rick Wiley, veteran GOP fundraiser Sherry Schultz will be leaving her party fundraising job at the end of this week. Schultz was convicted on a "caucus scandal" count by a Dane Co. jury over the weekend.

"We have mutually agreed to part ways," said Wiley. "We wish her the best of luck in anything that she faces." Some of Schultz' responsibilities will be absorbed by RPW staff, until a permanent replacement is found.

On Saturday, a Dane Co. jury convicted Schultz of one count of felony misconduct for misusing her position as an aide to former Assembly Majority Leader Steve Foti. Schultz was charged, along with former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen, with using Capitol resources for the benefit of GOP campaigns.
