Banana Republic Dept: Wisconsin Senate Republicans Aim to Remove Civil Servants Next at Government Ethics and Election Commissions

Patrick Marley:

Republican state senators Tuesday denied the confirmations of the directors of Wisconsin’s ethics and elections commissions — and the leader of the state Senate said he hoped to remove two civil servants at those agencies next.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said Republicans had lost faith in the Ethics Commission and Elections Commission because they continue to employ people who worked for the now-disbanded Government Accountability Board. The accountability board participated in a sweeping investigation of Republicans that was shut down in 2015 after the state Supreme Court concluded nothing illegal occurred.

“I wish they’d all resign,” Fitzgerald told reporters of former accountability board employees.

UPDATE:

It gets worse.
