WisDems Dispute Marquette Poll

As for the complaints about the Marquette poll itself, Tate took issue with the poll’s demographic sampling, contending that conservative Milwaukee suburbs were over-represented and the Madison media market was under-represented, and with too few young voters.

Tate and state party spokesman Scot Ross also raised suspicions about who might be paying for the poll, and whether the state’s conservative think tanks were involved. They also sharply criticized professor Charles Franklin, who led the poll.

Walker’s budget bill legal fees could hit $850,000

Gov. Scott Walker’s decision to drop “the bomb” in February 2011 is continuing to prove lucrative for one party: The private law firm hired by the governor to deal with the fallout.That arrangement is now worth up to $850,000 in taxpayer dollars for Michael Best & Friedrich, hired by Walker to provide legal services regarding the budget repair bill that stripped the ability of most public workers to engage in collective bargaining.

The contract, which calls for the law firm to be compensated at a rate “not to exceed $300 per hour,” was amended for the third time, effective March 21, 2012, according to records on file with the Secretary of State. The amendment raised the maximum payment from the $500,000 level set a year ago, and extended the contract for another full year, through June 30, 2013.

DNR refuses to order well testing in waste hauler case

Relax, it’s relatively low:

Despite a plea from Jefferson County residents who live near fields where excessive amounts of human waste were spread, the state Department of Natural Resources has refused to order the waste hauler in the case to pay for tests of private wells in the area.

Cathy Stepp, DNR secretary, said in a letter to the residents that the potential for groundwater contamination from overspreading by Herr Environmental was “relatively low.”
