[Madison, WI]  Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement on Friday:

“Governor Tony Evers just proposed procuring, printing, verifying, and mandating the mailing of millions of ballots within ten days. Even he knows that’s not logistically feasible. The clerks of this state should know this is a complete fantasy. The Legislature on both sides of the aisle has to know this is ridiculous. In pitching this idea, the governor is lying directly to Wisconsinites about this even being remotely possible. Acting like this is doable is a hoax.

“Record numbers of absentee ballots have already been sent out. All registered Wisconsin voters can easily request an absentee ballot from their clerk or online at myvote.wi.gov.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.

    So instead of trying to figure out how, in this time of crisis, we can continue our democratic practices, Fitzgerald would have us abandoned them for what? What kind of leadership do you think this is? Wringing hands and saying it can’t be done. The fact is, the only reason it can’t be done is that you don’t want it to be done. Fitzgerald has demonstrated that he would prefer limiting voter participation to those who have the resources to overcome any obstacle. Is that because he believes that only his wealthy donors would then be able to vote? That would result in government by corporations, the definition of fascism.
