NOW they want to be sure.

Well, how nice that they now want to take the time to be sure things are as they should be. Too bad they couldn't have taken the time to actually find out if Ms. Miller Fienen was licensed to practice law in the state of Wisconsin before making her Chief Legal Counsel.

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

Gov. Jim Doyle is reviewing the work of his unlicensed former legal counsel to make sure she didn't inadvertently overstep her bounds, a spokesman said.

Chandra Miller Fienen resigned Friday amid revelations that she was not licensed to practice law in the state. On Thursday, an aide to Doye told the Wisconsin State Journal that Miller Fienen had not practiced law or represented Doyle in court while serving as his legal counsel.

"We think it's highly unlikely that she overstepped her authority," Doyle spokesman Lee Sensenbrenner said today. "We are doing a review just to be sure."

Friday was the last day for Miller Fienen, the daughter of Sen. Mark Miller, D-Monona, in the $100,000 a year job. Sensenbrenner said there were no plans so far for replacing Miller Fienen.
