MADISON -- In response to failed Congressional candidate Derrick Van Orden’s announcement that he will run again to represent Wisconsin’s 3rd District, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler issued the following statement:

“Derrick Van Orden is a self-confessed sexual harasser and a failed candidate who voters rejected as too extreme for Wisconsin just months ago. Since then, Congressman Ron Kind has helped bring home $1,400 survival checks and critical funding for vaccine distribution, schools, child care, and more. Meanwhile, Van Orden has rallied with cop-killing insurrectionists, spread anti-Semitic bile, and promoted wild conspiracy theories. Voters in the 3rd District chose Ron Kind over Van Orden in 2020, and I don’t think they’re having any second thoughts.”

Additional background on Derrick Van Orden:

On January 6, Van Orden rallied with insurrectionists who killed a US Capitol Police officer and attempted to violently overturn the November election results.

On January 26, Van Orden was forced to apologize to the Jewish community after “making a Nazi reference to a Jewish political figure on Twitter.”

In his 2015 book, Van Orden “bragged” about “an incident where he spontaneously exposed a male lieutenant's enlarged scrotum to two young female officers.”
