Statement on passage of dismantling of GAB and campaign finance deform bills
“Republicans have dismantled a transparent and accountable Legislature.”
“Republicans have dismantled a transparent and accountable Legislature. In a week when thousands of people have lost their jobs in Wisconsin, did Republicans call us in to find creative ways to stop the bleeding of jobs in Wisconsin? Or to provide retraining to those workers? No. The State Senate was called into “extraordinary” session on Friday not to help anyone find a job, but rather help Republicans keep their jobs.”
“Wisconsin is on pace to lose nearly double the manufacturing jobs that we lost in 2014, but we didn’t do anything about that. What the State Senate did, on a party-line vote was to protect Republicans, protect their donors, help their friends with illegal collusion, and retaliated against the GAB. All of this done in an “extraordinary” session and in the dark of the night.”
