Via Jim Rowen, comes now Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp's Sunday evening response to yesterday's story in the State Journal about a gaggle of Republican political appointees and campaign donors connected to contaminating Jefferson County drinking water with human excrement. Stepp doesn't dispute a single word in the report and in fact claims she's going to take steps to more thoroughly identify potential conflicts of interest in the future. Despite all of those elements, Secretary Stepp's press release is shot through with fauxtrage.
What's Stepp's point, other than to take people for fools? I have no idea.
