The more than five-month period of the investigation covers the administrations of former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle and current Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
Then you have the gratuitous stupid remarks:
But Sherrie Tussler said she found it concerning. Tussler is the executive director of Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee, which does advocacy work on behalf of people who receive assistance through FoodShare.
"This is a material failure of the state Department of Health Services to inform the federal government," Tussler said.
Like I said: gratuitous AND stupid.
The Doyle administration had oversight at the state level throughout the time of the alleged fraud up to the time it was discovered.
Well, it worked!! Doyle took over the program, screwed it up to a fare-thee-well, and made Walker look bad.
All he needed was Jason Stein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel to perform the ritual. Here's the recipe:
Take straight news
Slice/dice facts into semi-sequential order
Cover with powdered bull offal
Bake with plenty of concern-troll quotes
Bury the real perps' names deep, deep, deep, in the mix.
Serve up with Pure BS Headline
