Doyle Donor Says He Never Expected State Business In Return for Support
After nearly seven hours of testimony from defendant Georgia Thompson, the defense took less than seven minutes to question their second witness, Marathon Travel and Cruise owner John Noel.
Noel, of Stevens Point, and his family have given nearly $30,000 to Gov. Jim Doyle's campaign since 2002, and he served on a state board, the Economic Growth Council, appointed by Doyle. Noel's company also bid on the state travel contracts.
Hurley asked if Noel ever expected or received any quid pro quo from the governor for his support. He answered no, he hadn't.
