Sturtevant, WI — This past week a direct mailer paid for by Wisconsinites for Liberty Fund was distributed throughout the 63rd Assembly District accusing candidate Adam Steen of discriminating against military voters. The mailer falsely claims,“Adam Steen’s plan prevents those serving our nation overseas from voting in our elections.”

In response to the aforementioned claim, Adam Steen has released the following statement:


The blatantly untrue and libelous assertion put forward in a mailer distributed throughout the 63rd Assembly District by Wisconsinites for Liberty Fund only exposes the panic and desperation that those financially supporting my opponent, Robin Vos, are currently grappling with. Did the libelous organization responsible for this mailer forget about the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) of 1986, in which states are required to ensure voting rights for our military members?

I 100% SUPPORT THE VOTING RIGHTS OF OUR OVERSEAS SERVICE MEMBERS! My grandfather served in the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. Many of his friends gave their lives for this country. I find the assertion that I do not want to allow for members of the military to vote to be extremely demeaning to myself, my family, and to the many brave men and women in uniform who courageously put themselves in harm’s way to defend our freedoms as Americans, including the right to vote.

To date, Speaker Vos has displayed no public outrage for the LIES made on his behalf. Perhaps that tells us more about the character of Speaker Vos than it does of myself. It’s time for a change.
