voterRepublicans 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:

jennifer-shilling-lc“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.

Wisconsinites expect a respectful transition of power, not a power grab by one party.

scott-fitzgeraldSenator says they do not believe in bi-partisanship, respecting our system of government, fair play or the will of the people.

GREEN BAY, WI - State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) released the following statement today on the Republican legislators and their actions this week in Madison.

dave-hansen“Having been rejected by the voters, Scott Walker and his lackeys in the legislature are resorting to doing what they do best: rigging the system any way they can for their own benefit and the benefit of their corporate donors at the expense of the people.

“True to form they hatched this scheme behind closed doors, sprang it on the public at the last possible minute and are now doing everything they can to ram it through before Governor-elect Evers and Attorney General-elect Kaul take office and before the public realizes what happened.

“The truth is that Scott Walker and the Republican Party do not believe in democracy. They do not believe in bi-partisanship, respecting our system of government, fair play or the will of the people. They believe in only one thing: their own political power.

“If any doubts remain after what we’ve witnessed over the last 8 years, tomorrow’s lame duck session should dispel them once and for all.”
