MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to review some loans made by Wisconsin's troubled job creation agency.
In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Baldwin asks for a review of how three loans by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation were handled. The loans have not been repaid.
One of cases involves a $500,000 loan to a Milwaukee company, Building Committee Inc., which is owned by a top donor to Gov. Scott Walker. The State Journal reported earlier this year that a top Walker cabinet member pushed WEDC officials to provide a $4 million loan to the company.
Baldwin also wants DOJ to look into a $1 million loan to Green Box of Green Bay and $2 million loaned to Oneida Seven Generations Corp. Both loans are in default.
