Oped from head of Wisconsin’s League of Women Voters:
It is troubling to see the John Doe investigations and fallout back in the news, as it has escalated to the point where legislative leaders are calling for Elections Commission Administrator Mike Haas and other officials to resign, despite no accusations of wrongdoing or any recommendation by the DOJ for their resignation.
The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin trusts the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission to be able to evaluate their staff and make decisions about their ability to maintain nonpartisanship in our elections.
Under Haas’ leadership, the Elections Commission has successfully administered the 2016 statewide presidential recount, implemented online voter registration, provided training for clerks across the state on changes in election law, and implemented a new statewide voter database and election administration system. The league has interfaced with Haas and other WEC staff in our voter service work and always found them to be helpful, nonpartisan and highly professional.
