wi-fair-mapsMADISON – Today the Republican majority in the Wisconsin State Senate voted to reject the supposed appointment of Wisconsin Elections Committee Administrator Meagan Wolfe.

Senator Jeff Smith (D-Brunswick) had the following to say about the vote:

“Republicans became ‘law-takers’ today by illegally voting to reject a nomination that wasn’t legally before the Senate in the first place. The resolution they passed usurps the authority of the Wisconsin Elections Committee.  Saying or doing something illegally doesn’t make it legal. As your parents may have told you, just saying something doesn’t make it so.

wi-senate-swearing-in“Today marks another chapter of Republicans’ desperate attempts to cling to power. If they just did what the public sent them here to do, they wouldn’t have to cheat with gerrymandered maps, illegally intervene in our elections watchdog agency and threaten to impeach a wildly popular Supreme Court Justice who hasn’t even ruled on a case yet.”
