Republicans Demand the City of Milwaukee Cease in Highly Partisan Voting Activities

Madison... Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester), Speaker Pro Tempore Tyler August (R-Lake Geneva), Assistant Majority Leader Kevin Petersen (R-Waupaca), and Wisconsin Elections Commission member Don Millis released the following statement regarding “Milwaukee Votes 2022” door-to-door canvassing.

“We are demanding that the City of Milwaukee immediately cease assisting a privately-funded, liberal group in their efforts to only engage with and turn out certain voters. Public resources should not be used for Get Out the Vote (GOTV) drives that inherently favor one party or candidate over another.

“The City of Milwaukee’s promotion and coordination of potentially illegal activities under the guise of canvassing is why Wisconsin voters have lost confidence in our elections. It is inappropriate for any municipality to support a GOTV campaign.

 “Democrats continue to allow suspicious activity and highly partisan groups to meddle in our elections. Milwaukee Votes 2022 is essentially Zuckerbucks 2.0. This must stop now.”

Speaker Robin Vos and Senator Duey Strobel have submitted an open records request for all communications with the City of Milwaukee and partisan Democratic out-of-state group called “GPS Impact” or any other group coordinating these efforts in Wisconsin.
