A woman passed over as Marinette County register of deeds earlier this year sued Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday, saying he violated a federal law that prohibits denying people jobs because they have filed for bankruptcy.
The suit in federal court in Milwaukee by deputy register of deeds Becky Chasensky also alleges Walker violated her rights to equal protection under the law when he passed her up for a more politically connected candidate.
I can’t wait to see Gov. Walker defend his decision to appoint a more politically-connected (but less qualified) person as Marinette County register of deeds over an individual who was more qualified and more highly recommended but less politically connected.
