Dont Talk Trash About The DOC


(AP) Wisconsin Corrections Secretary Ed Wall is warning employees of his department they could lose their job if they spread what he calls ``false or malicious information'' about the agency. An email provided to The Associated Press by a Corrections employee and confirmed as authentic by the department shows Wall sent the message on Monday.

Wall writes he is disturbed about rumors floating around the 10,000-employee agency that it may be opening a new prison or privatizing operations. He says those rumors are baseless and says ``people who are involved in spreading that rumor should stop immediately.''

He says doing so is a workplace violation that will be ``strictly enforced.''

Wall adds, ``Improper use of email causes problems and has cost people their jobs. Please don't be one of them.''
