MADISON (AP) - The secretary of the Republican Party of Wisconsin is the first appointee to the new state ethics commission, state officials said Tuesday, a move a government watchdog group decried as "exactly what we feared." Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has appointed Katie McCallum of Middleton, according to Reid Magney, spokesman for the soon-to-be-eliminated Government Accountability Board, which oversees state elections and ethics laws. In addition to her current role as party secretary, McCallum is a former spokeswoman and fourth vice chair for the state Republican Party, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.
