Statement by Senator Miller on Passage of John Doe

Madison – “Today Republicans streamlined corruption. They told Wisconsinites that politicians are above the law, that elected officials deserve special treatment and that avoiding accountability is more important than justice. Republicans are out of control.

“Perhaps it is appropriate they passed this bill in the dark of night. Exempting politicians from John Doe investigations for misconduct in public office and bribery among many other crimes, casts a cloak of darkness over our democracy.”
