MADISON - 48 hours after a report that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir blew off the majority of Gov. Scott Walker's Opioid Task Force meetings, despite touting her role on the Task Force, Vukmir has yet to explain why she failed to attend 7 of the Task Force's 10 meetings.

Vukmir has proudly touted her role on the Task Force during her U.S. Senate campaign, and even claimed credit for the Task Force's work, but the truth is that Vukmir didn't take her job seriously and blew off 70% of meetings.

Sure, Vukmir called in to two of the meetings that she skipped, in person. But when she did attend telephonically, Vukmir did not participate.

Leah Vukmir didn't do her job on the Governor's Opioid Task Force, she refuses to explain why, and now she's asking for a promotion to the U.S. Senate.

Across the board, Vukmir has consistently sided with powerful special interests over Wisconsinites, working to let insurance companies get out of covering Wisconsinites' various health care conditions, from mental health care and oral chemotherapy, to cochlear implants and substance abuse treatments. Now, Vukmir is campaigning on repealing the Affordable Care Act and gutting protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.
