Corruption has a new ally

GOP blocks investigations of political crimes

MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling released the following statement after legislative Republicans passed Senate Bill 43 to prevent John Doe investigations into political crimes:

“Legislative Republicans fail to acknowledge that crimes were committed in the Walker administration and political cronies rightfully went to jail. The system worked and justice was served. By exempting politicians from John Doe criminal investigations, Republicans are holding themselves to a lower standard and inviting more corruption.

“Once again, this is a gross abuse of political power at a time when we have a shrinking middle class, declining family wages and stagnant job creation in Wisconsin. Rather than enabling more corruption and covering up Gov. Walker’s political scandals, we should be helping working families, investing in our communities and encouraging economic prosperity.”
