John Doe investigation looks into bids to house Milwaukee county workers

A life of its own:

The corruption investigation into Gov. Scott Walker’s time as Milwaukee County executive is focusing on the bid competition to house the county’s Department on Aging in private office space, the Journal Sentinel has learned.

Investigators are looking for signs of bid-rigging or other misconduct as representatives of the privately owned Reuss Federal Plaza vied unsuccessfully in 2010 to keep the department offices, according to sources familiar with the case. The offices had moved in 2005 to the blue tower, 310 W. Wisconsin Ave., in a $3 million deal.
