Last week, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the group was found to have violated the law but that it did not rise to the level of them being stripped of their authority to be the state advocate for the disabled.
However, buried at the end of the story - where the corporate media giant likes to put stories that they really don't want people to know about but do want to be able to claim they reported it - is the news drop that people should be aware of (emphasis mine):
On Friday, Walker announced his final two appointments to the new Mental Health Board.What the paper doesn't report is that Kimberly Walker was fired from her corp counsel job for her incompetence and lack of ethics. Kimberly Walker was the person who gave Emperor Chris Abele advice on how to circumvent open records laws. Not only was her advice unethical and illegal but it was also faulty in that her advice wouldn't work.
They are Lyn Malofsky, who will represent consumers of services, and Kimberly Walker, a legal representative.
Malofsky served as executive director of Warmline Inc. and helped establish La Linea de Apoyo for the Spanish speaking. She co-founded the Crisis Intervention Team.
Walker is executive director of the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee and previously served as corporation counsel for Milwaukee County.
Illegalities and ethics never bothered Scott Walker and he is no stranger to cronyism, so this was a slam dunk decision.
Isn't it nice to see that Abele and Scott Walker can show such "bipartisanship" to reward another crooked crony? I'm sure that if Scott Walker ever needed the favor, such as giving Tim Russell a job, Abele has got it covered.
And isn't it nice to know that this whole scheme regarding Milwaukee County's mental health system had nothing to do about politics or profiteering?
