For more information contact: Rep. Brandtjen- (414) 915-8425 March 9, 2018
Madison- State Representative Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) issued the following statement regarding the threat to Representative Jarchow and the lack of response from the Capitol Police.
“We as lawmakers, on any level, local, state, or federal, make decisions that affect the lives of many around us. When someone elevates their hateful rhetoric to the level of threatening our families, our homes, and even our churches, charges being brought forth is absolutely warranted. Several 14 year old students in my district will be expelled from school for much less. This is an outrage, and I demand a review of Capitol Police policy regarding threats made to elected officials. Threats cannot go without charges, plain and simple.”
Rep. Brandtjen can be reached at her office in Madison by phone or e-mail.
