OSHKOSH – Today, Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) issued the following statement condemning a Republican-sponsored joint resolution calling for the criminal prosecution of multiple election officials:
“Calling for the criminal prosecution of election officials is appalling and dangerous. Wisconsin Republicans have been far too complacent in tolerating extremism within their ranks, and this is the most dangerous iteration to date.
“Every Republican lawmaker in Wisconsin should reject this alarming idea publicly and loudly. Additionally, they need to make clear whether they accept the results of the 2020 election. At this point, silence equates to an embrace of criminal prosecution of election officials and anti-democracy rhetoric.”
