MADISON — The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin chair Martha Laning on breaking news that outgoing Attorney General Brad Schimel has been appointed by outgoing Governor Scott Walker to the Waukesha County Circuit Court:

“Wisconsinites overwhelmingly want their courts to be independent, but Scott Walker has nonetheless appointed a highly partisan Republican to the job. Even though Wisconsin voters rejected divisive and partisan politicians like Brad Schimel just two weeks ago, Republicans have chosen to ignore the will of voters and put politics before people.”
