Perjury Watch

Well, somebody's going to dissemble.

Two of Gov. Jim Doyle's appointees told a Department of Transportation attorney to delay the release of a politically damaging 2004 report - in apparent violation of the state open records law - the attorney testified Thursday.

Attorney Jim Thiel said he was told to not release the report until after he got a copy of a Department of Administration rebuttal that questioned the DOT's finding that state engineers cost 18% less than consultants. The conclusion that state employees cost less conflicted with Doyle's platform of trimming state jobs.

Sure enough, the best part is scheduled for Friday:

Busalacchi and Romanski are among those slated to testify today.

Romanski is now a bigwig in DNR. That's comforting.
