Senate Chief Clerk Resigns, Leadership Cites Credible Allegation of Abuse
Michael Queensland resigned September 22.
The chief clerk for the Wisconsin Senate has resigned following a credible allegation of abuse and an ensuing independent investigation, according to Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu.
Michael Queensland, 38, has denied all allegations, according to LeMahieu’s office.
He was paid $141,000 a year.
Sources say Queensland’s departure was tied to an incident during the National Conference of State Legislatures in mid-August. Queensland could not immediately be reached for comment.
