|[WEST ALLIS, Wis…] The West Allis Professional Police Association Political Action Committee (WAPPA PAC) enthusiastically endorses Brad Schimel for re-election as Wisconsin’s Attorney General.|
“We feel that Attorney General Schimel’s qualifications, history and experience in Wisconsin Law Enforcement in the District Attorney’s Office for Waukesha County and as the current Wisconsin Attorney General will continue to benefit the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Community and the citizens of Wisconsin,” said Mike Wroblewski, President of WAPPA PAC.
Wroblewski said Schimel’s leadership on fighting the opioid and meth problems in Wisconsin, as well as his willingness to partner with the men and women on the front lines of law enforcement, were key factors in their decision to support Schimel this year.
“Brad Schimel is a real prosecutor with a real record of pursuing and getting justice that keeps Wisconsin safer and stronger,” said Schimel Campaign Manager Johnny Koremenos. “Josh Kaul’s record is weak, thin and blatantly partisan. That’s why every day our team grows, while the Kaul campaign relies on help from out of state special interests.”
The West Allis Professional Police Association, a member of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, represents the men and women of the West Allis Police Department and stands up to provide a safe and fair work environment for members, address the constantly changing threats and challenges that law enforcement officers face while working to protect the community as law enforcement officers.
Brad Schimel became a prosecutor in the Waukesha County District Attorney’s office after serving as an intern there during law school. Throughout his nearly 25-year career in Waukesha, the largest portion of which was spent in the sensitive crimes unit, Brad Schimel earned a reputation as an aggressive and tough prosecutor, handling thousands of cases and more than 150 jury trials. Schimel’s caseload included elder abuse, human trafficking, homicide, sexual assault, drunk driving, internet crimes against children, public corruption, and one of the nation’s first sextortion cases.
Schimel faces activist Josh Kaul in the General Election. Whereas Brad Schimel has a nearly three decades long, distinguished career as a prosecutor in this state, Josh Kaul has never prosecuted a criminal case in Wisconsin. Not one, ever. Whereas Schimel has a broad, bipartisan coalition of Wisconsin supporters, Kaul is funded and supported by state and national partisan activists.
As Attorney General, Shimel has also prioritized preventing Internet crimes against children and violence against women. Under Schimel, Wisconsin is a national leader in the fight against human trafficking. Together with a coalition of Attorneys General from across the country, Brad Schimel has led numerous lawsuits challenging overreach by the federal government that would cripple the economy and hurt Wisconsin families.
Brad Schimel’s determined, yet compassionate, record on criminal justice has earned him the support of 64 of Wisconsin’s 72 sheriffs and 50 of Wisconsin’s 71 district attorneys, including 21 elected Democrats who appreciate the breadth, depth, and nonpartisan nature of the Republican Attorney General’s experience.
Brad and his wife, Sandi, raise their two daughters in Waukesha County where Brad previously served as a prosecutor since 1990, including eight years as the elected District Attorney. He was elected Wisconsin Attorney General in 2014.
