WEST ALLIS, Wisc. – Tony Evers’ attempt to keep the actions of his Parole Commission a secret from the public may be coming to an end. Today, a judge ordered the Evers administration to immediately release Parole Commission records to the news outlet Wisconsin Right Now or show up in court.

This comes after months of Tony Evers, his Department of Corrections, and his Parole Commission trying to hide public records detailing which convicted criminals have been let out of prison. In response to today’s ruling by Judge Michael Kenitz, Michels campaign spokesperson Anna Kelly released the following statement:

“The people of Wisconsin deserve transparency on how many murderers and rapists have been released into their communities. Tony Evers needs to comply with the court’s order immediately and finally put public safety ahead of politics. He’s not above the law.”
