[Madison, WI] – Tonight, after weeks of dodging questions on whether he planned to fire Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, Tony Evers gave concerned Wisconsinites their answer: there will be no consequences for John Chisholm after his office authorized $1,000 bail for Darrell Brooks, who is the suspect of a violent attack that killed six Wisconsinites, including a child, and injured more than 60 at the Waukesha Christmas parade.

Even Chisholm himself described the low bail as “a mistake” – but once again, Tony Evers is denying justice for the victims of violence and making clear that he will never prioritize public safety or protecting Wisconsinites from crime.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Chairman Paul Farrow:

“Today, Tony Evers had the gall to suggest that there weren’t enough ‘facts’ to fire John Chisholm. Here are the facts: John Chisholm’s office allowed a decades-long violent criminal to walk free and kill six people in Waukesha, and Tony Evers is refusing to hold him accountable.

“Tony Evers failed the community of Waukesha tonight, and families across Wisconsin will be extremely disappointed by his choice. Wisconsinites cannot count on him to keep them safe.”
