Hesselbein Opposes Tax Dollars for Private Attorneys
"This is another example of Speaker Vos subverting the will of the people for political gain."
MADISON – Republican leaders delivered a paper ballot this afternoon requesting the Committee on Assembly Organization approve the use of taxpayer dollars to hire private attorneys.
“This is another example of Speaker Vos subverting the will of the people for political gain. They have already wasted a massive amount of taxpayer dollars on private attorneys to defend their attacks on Wisconsin democracy,” Representative Dianne Hesselbein said.
Representative Hesselbein, a member of the Committee on Assembly Organization, voted to deny the Speaker’s request for private legal counsel.
“We cannot continue to let Republican leaders abuse their powers in effort to further hamper the voices of the people of Wisconsin. This irresponsible spending has to stop. We must refocus our efforts on transparent government that works for the people,” Hesselbein concluded.
