Republicans turn non-partisan elections and ethics watchdog into partisan lapdog
Rep. Subeck: Statement on Assembly Passage of AB 388
MADISON –Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to Assembly passage of AB 388, which decimates the Government Accountability Board, replacing nonpartisan judges with partisan appointees to two separate entities charged with overseeing elections and ethics:
“AB 388 decimates the Government Accountability Board, turning Wisconsin’s national acclaimed non-partisan watchdog into a partisan lapdog.
The people of Wisconsin value our state’s long tradition of clean, open, and transparent government, yet Assembly Republicans are taking us down the path to a new era of corruption. It is clear that Republicans are out of touch with the hardworking people of our state.
Assembly Republicans are clearly more interested in shielding themselves from the consequences of fraud and corruption than they are in providing economic and educational opportunities for the hardworking people of Wisconsin.”
