During the last year Nebraska Watchdog has continued its commitment to original reporting.
We’ve uncovered numerous exclusive stories involving the U.S. Senate race, Omaha’s race for mayor, the nuclear power plant at Fort Calhoun, Lincoln’s arena, secret political deals and more.
This week we look back at Nebraska Watchdog’s top ten stories of 2012, original reporting first seen under Nebraska Watchdog’s banner, beginning with numbers 10-9-8.
This has been a year of one complaint after another targeting Douglas County Election Commissioner Dave Phipps. Nebraska Watchdog recently reported that State Sen. Steve Lathrop plans to introduce legislation early next year aimed at ending Phipps’ role. It’s a role given Phipps by the governor and as Nebraska Watchdog first reported earlier this year the governor and Phipps want to keep it that way.
Omaha’s 2013 race for mayor wasted no time picking up steam in 2012. Nebraska Watchdog has consistently broken stories on the race including the decisions by Brad Ashford and Dan Welch to take on incumbent Jim Suttle.
Questions about abortion and women’s health services were first uncovered by Nebraska Watchdog’s Capitol Bureau Chief Deena Winter in this exclusive report.
What is your top story of the year? Please comment.
The countdown continues tomorrow.
