Investigatory Journalism Has TWO Stories

The JS has found an interesting situation.

Actually, two of them, one far more important than the other.

Here's the second one:

....Cheryl Ferrill was hired as a supervisor in 2010. Ferrill is Robertson's sister, according to workers who know both women.

It's unclear what supervisory or benefits processing experience Ferrill has. She was an officer with the Milwaukee Police Department from 1982 until 1996 when she was injured on the job, according to city records. In recent years, she worked for a temp service and for HP Enterprise Services, the company that helps the state process benefits claims. She currently receives duty disability payments in addition to her $48,500-a-year state job.

It's long been known that "duty disability" payments are very generous in both dollars AND in interpretation of "disability."

The JS should start tugging on that thread, too.
