Wisconsin state Web site features wrong skyline


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new Web site for campaign finance information in Wisconsin includes the state Capitol in Madison in front of a striking skyline -- of Minneapolis.

  State Sen. Jeff Plale noticed the geography gaffe after looking at the site created by the Government Accountability Board.

  The South Milwaukee Democrat said he doesn't think a lot of lawmakers in Minnesota care about Wisconsin's Government Accountability Board.

  The board says it's paying Bloomfield, Conn.-based PCC Technology Group about $1 million to develop the new site as part of a new system for tracking campaign fund raising and spending.

  Ethics division director Jonathan Becker says he'll ask the vendor to promptly update the picture.
