LINCOLN HILLS SCANDAL UPDATE: Scott Walker and the broken chain of command (with Jessie Rodriguez exception)

As quoted in Retired Racine judge on Lincoln Hills letter: Scott Walker 'swept it under the rug'.  (, 2/27/2016)
Once again, our Governor is out of the loop.  That surprise turned to outrage after learning the governor never saw the letter and that years passed until investigations into problems at the Irma youth prison began.

On the other hand, there appears to be no broken chain of command between the Governor's office and the chair of the Assembly Committee on Children & Families.  (Holy shit!   That gasket-blowin' Bob Gannon is vice-chair.)

As noted in Assembly Chairwoman Shuts Down Discussion of Lincoln Hills Child Abuse.  (Press release, 2/24/2016)

As reported in Scott Walker's office warned in 2012 of safety issues at Lincoln Hills.  (, 2/12/2016)

As quoted in same article.

Bottom line:  Hands-off manager = broken chain of command.

Walker already had his sights set on a bigger prize by then anyway.  Couldn't be bothered, I suspect.
