MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today in response to the new Legislative Audit Bureau report on Wisconsin’s non-partisan Government Accountability Board:

“Today’s audit shows that the Government Accountability Board is conducting its investigations in an appropriate way. We should be proud of the GAB’s efforts to ensure a clean, open and transparent government.

“The real ‘partisan witch hunt’ in Wisconsin is the concerted Republican effort to degrade and discredit the GAB, so Republicans can turn our government watchdog into a partisan lapdog.

“The irony is the majority of GAB Members have been appointed by Gov. Walker and still they are not satisfied! The Republican assault on democracy must be stopped.”
