Scott Walker on WEDC: "Being a good steward of taxpayer my top priority." Liar!

Here's the followup report from WKOW's Greg Neumann, on WEDC's continued administrative problems reported here a few days ago. Republicans and Scott Walker were warned, and this is only two years into their political mutiny:

On Wednesday, outgoing Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Secretary and CEO Paul Jadin told members of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee that they should know more about what his agency is up to. But, he apparently had no intention of publicly telling them anything about this most recent problem. In more than 30 minutes of testimony, Jadin didn't mention anything about how the WEDC failed, for more than a year, to keep track of $8.2 million dollars in loans it paid out to 99 Wisconsin businesses.

"This hearing went on late into the night, and so he didn't decide to mention that until we were all gone. It doesn't smell right," said Sen. Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee), who sits on the JLAC.
