State Assembly Heads Down Path to End of Good Government in Wisconsin

Assembly Republicans Set to Usher In New Era of Corruption

MADISON – This week, the State Assembly will be voting on three dangerous Republican bills. The first bill, being considered today, exempts politicians from John Doe proceedings. Two bills, scheduled for votes tomorrow, radically rewrite our campaign finance laws and dismantle the Government Accountability Board.

“Republicans have come up with the perfect trifecta of anti-democracy bills to usher in a new era of corruption,” said Rep. Lisa Subeck (D-78). “These three bills are being rushed through in less than two weeks to not allow time for legislators, members of the media, and the public to fully comprehend and debate the devastating ramifications of these changes.”

AB 68 shields corrupt politicians from John Doe investigations, an investigatory tool some District Attorneys say is necessary to ever investigate and prosecute political corruption. AB 387 rewrites campaign finance laws to give corporations and billionaires more power and to shield their spending from the view of the public – and from the view of those charged with ensuring fairness and prosecuting corruption. AB 388 dismantles the Government Accountability board, turning our highly regarded non-partisan watchdog into a partisan lapdog with no teeth.

“Together, these three bills signal the end of democracy as we know it,” said Rep. Subeck. “Hardworking Wisconsin families are looking to us to address real problems like our crumbling roads and our lagging economy, yet Republicans are more interested in consolidating their own power and making it easier for corruption and cronyism to go undetected.”
