Doyle's Reckless Privatization Threatens Funding

(The above is the headline which the JS SHOULD have used....)

The state rapidly privatized much of its enrollment work in programs for the poor with little oversight from the Legislature and in possible violation of federal rules, a new state audit shows.

...The Enrollment Services Center was started in June 2009 by Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle's administration to enroll childless adults in FoodShare and BadgerCare Plus health services.

...The USDA's Food and Nutrition Service told Wisconsin officials in January 2010 not to expand their use of private contractors in the Enrollment Services Center offices in Madison and Milwaukee beyond the 106 private staff employed at that time.

But the audit found as of March 2011 that there were 432 HP Enterprise Services employees working for the Enrollment Services Center.

Meaning that Jim Doyle, Governor of Wisconsin (and a lawyer) flat-out ignored the Feds' warnings.

Wanna bet he did that to sandbag Walker?
