Hesselbein Votes No to Republican Private Investigators
MADISON – Today, Speaker Robin Vos, Chair of the Committee on Assembly Organization, issued a paper ballot to members of the committee to approve or deny authorization to hire legal counsel and employ investigators. The ballot issued today is another Republican attempt to sow doubt about the 2020 presidential election.
Republican leadership frequently issues paper ballots in the committee, avoiding the opportunity for the public to comment on the matter. In addition to flouting government transparency, these ballots are often put forward to gain approval for the use of taxpayer money to fund private attorneys to take action on partisan political issues.
“We need to end the silliness and focus on Wisconsin issues. Republicans must stop propping up a sore loser’s fantasies, and get down to the business of governing. Wisconsin taxpayers will be the real losers—stuck with the bill for an absurd Republican private investigation.”
