MADISON — This week, we heard Donald Trump embolden white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Politicians from across the spectrum have condemned Trump’s divisive and hateful words, yet Wisconsinites have only heard silence from Attorney General Brad Schimel. Our state deserves better. We should never have to wonder whether or not our elected officials will stand up to a President spewing hate.

“Until Brad Schimel forcefully condemns Donald Trump’s hateful words and holds him accountable, he is supporting Trump’s empowerment of white supremacists that has made Americans across the country feel frightened and disturbed. There are not “many sides” to the violence in Charlottesville. There were not “fine people” marching alongside Klan members and neo-Nazis. Voters deserve to know why Brad Schimel still hasn’t disavowed Trump’s remarks,” said DPW Chair Martha Laning.
