MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Jim Doyle's office is reviewing all actions taken by the governor's former legal counsel who resigned Friday amid revelations she is not licensed to practice law in Wisconsin.

Doyle spokesman Lee Sensenbrenner said Monday that it is very unlikely Chandra Miller Fienen did anything inappropriate. But Sensenbrenner says the review is under way regardless.

The governor's office said in a statement Friday that "she realizes that she has placed this office in a difficult position."

The state Republican Party filed a complaint alleging Miller Fienen has been falsely representing herself as an attorney when she does not have a license.

Sensenbrenner says she passed the state Bar exam, but for reasons that have not been disclosed was not licensed.
