In response to today’s article appearing in the Journal Sentinel describing Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor’s (D-Milwaukee) interaction at Wells Fargo Bank, Senator Taylor released the
following statement:

“I strongly object to the nature and characterization of my visit to a Wells Fargo Bank branch.

    I was a an ardent supporter of Sen. Taylor and must say I am very disappointed in her. She was wrong and needs to apologize for her behavior.
