ONE FLEW OVER TOM DASCHLE'S NEST:Bingo game spurs probe of Doyle's campaign: Republicans say event was used to snare votes (STEVE SCHULTZE and NAHAL TOOSI, Oct. 24, 2002, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
A Columbus Day bingo game at a Kenosha facility for the mentally ill has prompted a criminal investigation and another round of scandal allegations by Republicans against Jim Doyle, the Democratic candidate for governor.
Doyle's campaign used quarters paid as bingo prizes and refreshments to induce residents of the Dayton Residential Care Facility to cast absentee ballots, according to Republican Gov. Scott McCallum's campaign chief and state GOP Chairman Rick Graber.
Both accused Doyle's campaign of exploiting residents with mental disabilities at the former hotel.
