Description

Executive director of the Social Development Commission lied about her College credentials on her resume and resigned as a result of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's investigation. Within days of the newspaper's revelations, the chairman of the board and chief legal counsel resigned in disgrace. Earlier stories had uncovered fiscal mismanagement, which led to withholding of funding, a state audit and a radical overhaul of the agency. (Feb. 6-10 & 13, 1996)
