The state has given a six-figure job to a technology official who was fired five years ago by the Legislature after an audit questioned his management abilities and said he entered into a $1 million annual contract without getting bids.
After his firing, Mark Wahl worked briefly for the state Department of Administration and then took an extended military leave. Officials say they were required by law to provide him a job with a comparable salary after the leave.
