Senator Johnson’s Refusal to do His Job Started the Day He Took Office
It’s the height of hypocrisy that Johnson is campaigning to reduce bureaucratic red tape as he personally creates more delays and backlogs.
MADISON – If you thought Senator Johnson’s refusal to vote on the President’s Supreme Court nominee was bad, wait till you hear about the 7th Circuit. A recent report says that Johnson has held up the President’s nominee to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals his entire time in office. The vacancy is the longest of any circuit court in the entire country.
Senator Johnson has been playing politics with the judicial system like a true insider since day one. For years, Senator Baldwin worked to find a compromise but Johnson continued to move the goal post, insisting it was his way or the high way. Even after Senator Johnson finally found a candidate he approved of, attorney Don Schott, he has refused to put pressure on the judiciary committee to hold hearings. Schott has decades of experience, bi-partisan support and is backed by past presidents of the Wisconsin State Bar Association.
The result of Johnson’s refusal to do his job is delays for small business and everyday Wisconsinites that rely on the courts.
It’s the height of hypocrisy that Johnson is campaigning to reduce bureaucratic red tape as he personally creates more delays and backlogs. If Senator Johnson is really interested in cutting bureaucratic red tape he should start by looking in the mirror. He should stop playing Washington insider games, and confirm the President’s nominee.
