Another Walkerville resignation - how many is that?

Postby Gibe » Fri Feb 22, 2013 2:42 pm

Multiple resignations at the WEDC
Veteran's affairs
Chief of Staff

And now Dennis Smith, Head of DHS

How many does that make, I lost count...

Hmmm I wonder if this:

From the madison.com story cited above:

Smith, who was appointed by Walker to serve as DHS secretary on Jan. 3, has overseen the administration's handling of the state's Medicaid programs for more than 1 million Wisconsinites.

Democrats on Friday accused Smith of being "the mastermind of some of the Tea Party's most radical public health policies."

"From day one, Dennis Smith was more interested in an extreme ideology than in advocating for the health and well-being of Wisconsinites," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate said in a statement. "Wisconsin's next DHS secretary has the opportunity to turn the page on this unprecedented assault on BadgerCare. I hope for all Wisconsin families, she takes it."
