MADISON — One week before members of the U.S. Senate plan to force a vote in support of net neutrality, Attorney General candidate Josh Kaul and Congressman Mark Pocan joined together to call for action by Wisconsin’s GOP leaders and to call on Brad Schimel to join the coalition of AGs challenging the elimination of net neutrality.
“The elimination of net neutrality puts more power into the hands of big cable companies, and it hurts Wisconsin businesses and consumers,” Kaul said. “AGs from more than 20 states have gone to court to stand up for a free and open Internet, and Wisconsin should be part of that challenge.”
“12,983 constituents sent a clear message to my office: the internet should remain free and open for all Americans. Not a single person has called or e-mailed my office in favor of handing the internet over to big corporations,” said Pocan. “Repealing net neutrality was a gift to big telecom companies and it must be reversed. I’m proud to stand with Josh and I know that he’ll fight for Wisconsin’s small businesses and families as our next Attorney General.”
Josh Kaul served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, Kaul prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers, taking dangerous criminals off the street and making communities more secure. He grew up in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac in a family of law enforcement professionals and teachers. He is running for Attorney General in 2018.
