Desperation: The Republican Legacy
Republicans Rig the Rules Following Election Losses
MADISON, WI – In an effort to undermine election results after voters resoundingly elected Democrats to every statewide office, Senate Republicans voted on a series of proposals to limit the powers of Governor-elect Tony Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul. In response, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:
“Republicans are defiant and desperate in the wake of a new Democratic Governor and Attorney General. Rather than putting the election behind us and working with Gov.-elect Evers to improve health care, strengthen schools and fix our roads, Republican leaders have tightened their fists on more power. After these antics, the Republican legacy will be one of corruption, dishonesty, and misplaced priorities, that favor consolidating power over the issues impacting working families. The blatant disrespect for Wisconsin voters is an attempt to undermine the validity of elections that don’t go their way.
