Accountability? Well, in some cases

There's a time for accountability, this story suggests:

State Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) said she wanted Doyle administration officials to testify soon before the Legislature's Joint Audit Committee about the Milwaukee Job Development contracts because of concerns about accountability.

Darling, who has been an outspoken critic of Milwaukee W-2 agencies' performance, said she wanted assurances that state officials were effectively monitoring the new agency.
It seems Republicans believe that accountability is fine for poor families when it comes to social programs, but not for their schools.

Just replace the references to the agencies above with schools and you will quickly see statements that never seem to be able to come out of Republican mouths.

The GOP used to be the party of accountability. What happened?
