Ever hear of competitive bids?
Spivak & Bice report that DOA Administrator Marc Marotta's former law firm, Foley & Lardner, has been paid $394,000 for working on WHEDA issues. And, they will be retained to audit EdVest with their lead attorney getting $440 per hour and two others working for a mere $320 per hour. (Talk about "living wage"!)
Explaining why his former firm has been selected, Marotta said, "Those other big Milwaukee firms don't have the same presence, and I don't think they have the same type of depth as Foley."
If you don't put contracts out to bid, we have no choice but to believe the Doyle administration. Shouldn't we be different? Better than the other guys? Oh well.
