Former Walker appointee given 2 years in prison for stealing $51K from Wis. veterans’ groups
MILWAUKEE — A former associate of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was sentenced Friday to two years in prison after he was convicted of embezzling more than $51,000 from donations intended to help veterans and their families.
Kevin D. Kavanaugh, 62, is the fifth person close to Walker to be convicted as a result of a long-running secret probe, and a sixth person is scheduled to face trial next month. Walker himself has not been charged with wrongdoing.
Kavanaugh, whom Walker had named to the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Commission, was the treasurer of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, a veterans’ service organization. His job included distributing checks of at least $600 apiece to the widows and children of Wisconsin service members killed in action.
Prosecutors said Kavanaugh skimmed money from bank deposits and also made phony withdrawals, and then altered the books to mask the transactions.
