...Schimel's office said it was looking into whether the retiree — Thomas Dawson, long the state's top environmental lawyer — provided confidential information to the press.Officials said they still considered Dawson a state worker because his unused vacation time was being paid out to him....
In other words, he was still "on the clock," whether he showed his face or not. But Little Lefty Lawyer thinks that ethics investigations are "retaliation." Interesting choice of words, no?

Well, we have a "for what" in official H.R. records!!!
"Resignation during an investigation into allegations that he provided information that was confidential and protected by the attorney-client priviledge (sic) and the work-product doctrine, to a member of the public media."Attorney-client privilege is a BIG DEAL--to any attorney with ethics. But as we know, attorneys on the payroll of the State of Wisconsin are often ethics-challenged.
