MILWAUKEE, Wis — A liberal Milwaukee County board member with ties to Big Labor is taking a page out of the Internal Revenue Service playbook.

County Supervisor David Bowen, who worked with Service Employees International Union-affiliated officials on the county’s newly implemented “living wage” law, is calling for a county audit of Supportive Homecare Options Inc., one of three private firms contracted with the Milwaukee County Department of Family Care.

Bowen is making the request even though Family Care officials review budget documents every year and have found no financial inconsistencies with Supportive Homecare Options’ records, sources say.
