She has an update now with some new information.
The first part of her post gives a job description as a legislative aid. I wonder if Fischer actually is considered to meet all of the qualifications (emphasis mine):
Required knowledge, skills, and abilities: Thorough knowledge of the processes and procedures of the Legislature; thorough knowledge of the inter-relationship between the various committees and policy bodies of which the Senate is a member; ability to evaluate information and data and project its logical conclusion; ability to efficiently and effectively deal with the public both orally and in writing; and the ability to conduct research investigations involving the use of research methodology.
But even more interesting is what comes later:
It would be interesting to see if there are any other violations of an ethics code we should be aware of.
Others have sent me links to previous employment for Mr. Fischer. Most notably, he was let go from WTMJ 620 in October 1996. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tim Cuprisin writes, “management was concerned about a possible violation of the company’s ethics code.” He goes on to explain that Fischer used press credentials to better a trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando even though he wasn’t on assignment.
Currently there is speculation that Fischer has been replaced as the permanent fill-in host at WISN radio. Let me know if anyone can confirm that.
