County Pension Probe Stalls: Lena Taylor Could Benefit

News that the County's much-touted, long-overdue pension scandal probe is on life support could help the fledgling campaign by State Sen. Lena Taylor (R-Milwaukee) for Scott Walker's County Executive position.

She'd have a issue: Failed leadership on the most crucial issue facing Milwaukee County.

If Scott Walker and County government can't be trusted to launch and finance an independent investigation into systematic pension system abuses, then it's time to clean house - - really clean house - - and let a new County Exec partner with the US Attorney and let the chips fall where they may.
