Report: Rap song among reasons for 26 disciplinary letters to DNR workers

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Twenty-six state DNR employees were fired, suspended, or reprimanded last year.  

The Associated Press received 25 disciplinary letters in March, with the people's names and job titles blacked out.

The AP just received a 26th letter, after that person went to court to try and keep his disciplinary letter a secret. He lost, and the letter came out this week.  

It said he was let go for singing a sexually tainted rap song to a female co-worker, forcibly hugging her against her wishes, and giving her graphic details about an ex-girlfriend.  

The AP said one of the fired employees turned out to be David Horzewski of Reedsburg, a former conservation warden in Sauk County. He was criminally charged this month for allegedly seizing guns illegally from people he confronted for hunting violations.  

He's the first warden in the 135-year history of the state conservation service to be charged with felonies. Horzewski is due in court June 11th on six charges of theft and two of misconduct in public office.
