No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Road builders the latest to buy Craps

by @ 6:34 on July 24, 2006. Filed under Politics - Wisconsin.

This morning’s Journtinel reports that executives with HNTB gave Gov. Jim “Craps” Doyle (WEAC/Potawatomi-For Sale) $17,684. I suspect that it’s for future considerations because their second-biggest payday (a no-bid $685,000 contract to build mchange.org) came before Craps came to town, and their biggest (co-design of the Marquette Interchange) straddled the timeline.

Oh, and this fresh $17,000+ comes less than a year after the #2 official at WDOT held a highly-questionable barbeque fundraiser for Craps that HNTB officials attended.

Revisions/extensions (1:36 pm 7/24) – Brian reminds us that while the original $600,000 contract was indeed approved under the McCallum administration, it was under the Craps administration that gave final approval to the overrun-plagued site.
