The flashing brilliance of big-money Walker donor and WEDC CEO Mark Hogan

The Secrets of Foxconn.  (Urban Milwaukee, 10/26/2017)
The details of this unprecedented deal were left for the WEDC to determine, in a contract to be negotiated with Foxconn. “During the legislative debates, Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) and other Republicans said they would leave it up to the expertise of the WEDC to create a contract,” Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) says, in an interview with Urban Milwaukee. 
But no one is being allowed to see the contract. At a meeting of the state Legislature’s Audit Committee, Rep. Melissa Sargent (D-Madison) “had requested the document be made available for public review before it is executed.”
