MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Rep. Steve Nass says the results of a recent audit suggest that a top official with the University of Wisconsin System doesn't deserve to be retained.

Auditors say the UW System overpaid for insurance premiums and pension contributions by $33 million over the last two years.

Nass on Thursday said the discovery calls into question the leadership of Michael Morgan, the UW System senior vice president for administration and fiscal affairs. Morgan was appointed to a three-year term in 2010, and a permanent candidate is being sought.

Nass, a Republican from Whitewater, says Morgan needs to withdraw his own name from consideration.

Morgan did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

UW System spokesman David Giroux (gir-OO') says system officials plan to discuss the entire matter with legislators Tuesday.
