Madison- State Representative Janel Brandtjen (R- Menomonee Falls) issued the following statement regarding Speaker Vos’ attempt today to subvert the legislative process against the interest of election integrity:
“It is no secret that the Speaker of the Assembly, Robin Vos, and State Senator Kathy Bernier have been severely downplaying the significance of the voter fraud that the elections committee, the special counsel, and numerous independent groups have uncovered. Even in the face of growing outrage from an overwhelming number of Wisconsinites across the state, they continue to play political games with the future of our elections and our state.
Today, Speaker Vos referred numerous election bills that clearly belong in the Campaigns and Elections Committee to a different committee. To take away the Assembly Committee on Campaign and Election’s ability to provide the level of scrutiny that these bills require, and the citizens of Wisconsin deserve, is unconscionable and irresponsible. My question is simple: What are Robin Vos and Kathy Bernier afraid of?”
