As Republican state senators prepare to oust the state’s ethics and elections chiefs, GOP Gov. Scott Walker won’t say if he agrees the pair should go.
Three times on Friday, Walker sidestepped questions about whether he thought the Senate should deny the confirmations of ethics director Brian Bell and elections director Michael Haas.
“I’ll leave that up to them and focus on our ambitious agenda,” Walker told reporters.
And see this thread from Don Moynihan:
This really ought to be a national story: WI GOP replaced election & ethics watchdog two years ago, now trying fire the heads of its successor. No evidence of wrongdoing, simply a desire to establish partisan control over an independent agency. https://t.co/pVH0kdy7Ab
