For the "Investigator" Team at the JS

Here's an interesting lead:

Cities and states across the country are using money designated for specific purposes—such as fixing roads or sewers—in order to fill financial holes elsewhere, according to public officials and records. The moves are exposing municipalities to controversy, as federal regulators and local auditors are more heavily scrutinizing their finances to protect bond buyers and taxpayers.   --Ticker quoting WSJ

Of course, NOTHING like that EVER happens in the City of Milwaukee.

not disagreeing, but are you confusing the County and City?

In any event, Morics kept the City from becoming the County. Are the new candidates for Comptroller even CPA's? (There's another one for the Journal Sentinel to... ignore)
