Government Work v. Van Hollen

The pieces continue to fall into place.

Investigators mismanaged an inquiry into whether Gov. Jim Doyle's administration improperly influenced the award of a major building contract, said Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's spokesman.

The Division of Criminal Investigation closed the review into the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee project without Van Hollen's knowledge or approval in October, said spokesman Kevin St. John.

He said the internal case report fails to document what investigators did during the 18-month review, if anything, and why they ultimately decided not to pursue the case.

The case report was approved by Joell Schigur, who was director of the agency's public integrity unit.

While a certain RadioMouth was flogging Van Hollen for his moves at DoJ, I was suspicious that 'Bureaucracy Syndrome' might have been in play.

Looks like that might have been the case.
