Senator Kapenga Calls for WEC Resignations

Madison, WI– Senate President Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) released the following statement:

“As Wisconsin’s faith in elections has faltered, the leadership of the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) has contributed greatly to this distrust. These suspicions were not only confirmed but deepened by the audit conducted by the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau.

“And now, the investigation results from the Racine County Sheriff’s Office have made it abundantly clear that WEC is responsible for flagrantly breaking our state election laws.

“Today, I’m joining some of my legislative colleagues in calling for the resignation of Meagan Wolfe as WEC Administrator. But, in light of the pervasive issues within the organization, we need to go further. The public’s trust must be regained, and at this point the only solution is a wholesale change of leadership, which requires the resignations of all Commissioners.”
