FOND DU LAC, Wis. – Time and time again, Tony Evers and Josh Kaul have advocated for soft on crime polices that harm the people of Wisconsin. Just last week, the Evers Administration appointed convicted felon, Aundray Evans, to the Governor’s Juvenile Justice Commission despite the fact that he is awaiting trial on five felony and misdemeanor charges.
This is just the latest addition to the list of the soft on crime approach of Kaul and Evers:
- In 2018, Josh Kaul ran on fixing the state’s crime labs, but the crime labs are in disarray under his leadership. We’ve seen a 30% drop in cases taken from 2018 to 2021 – plus – the crime labs are taking longer to process many items, including DNA.
- Josh Kaul defended convicted rapist, Derrick Palmer, in a fair employment case.
- Under Evers and Kaul –
- Violent crime is on the rise.
- Milwaukee has broken homicide records for two straight years.
- Milwaukee County is suffering from historic overdose deaths in 2021.
- In March, Evers’ appointee, Curtis Schmitt Jr. resigned from the Wisconsin Board of Veterans Affairs amid child pornography charges. Josh Kaul was silent.
- In June, Evers was pressured to remove John Tate from the Wisconsin Parole Commission after Tate recommended to release a man who stabbed his wife to death more than 40 times in front of their two children. Josh Kaul was silent.
