Statement: Office of Special Counsel

Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding comments made about the Office of Special Counsel.

“Media reports and the statement put out by Representative Brandtjen were incorrect. The Office of Special Counsel will remain open as we guarantee the legal power of our legislative subpoenas and get through the other lawsuits that have gridlocked this investigation.

“We are grateful for Justice Gableman’s offer to reduce his salary as we are all concerned about the judicious use of taxpayers’ dollars. Our intention is to remain within the original budget allocated for the investigation.”
