Madison, WI – Wisconsin Family Action, Inc is offering a reward up to $1,500 payable to the person or persons who furnishes information leading to the arrest and conviction of individual(s) responsible for the arson which occurred on May 8, 2022, in the early morning hours at the Wisconsin Family Action office in Madison. See poster for more information.
On Tuesday morning, May 11, a group called Jane’s Revenge took credit for the fire bombing and warned that more attacks to pro-life organizations throughout the country will occur unless their demand of “disbanding all anti-choice establishments, fake clinics and violent anti-choice groups within the next 30 days.”
The FBI is working with local Madison law enforcement to investigate this matter, and after 3 weeks and despite the admission of Jane’s Revenge, there been no arrests made or any indication of progress identifying a person(s) of interest.
Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas railing against the agencies lack of action on what Senator Johnson called “domestic terrorism” and has requested answers to his questions about these agencies plans to stop Jane’s Revenge from delivering on their threats.
Additionally, Wisconsin Congressmen Fitzgerald, Tiffany, Grothman, Steil and Gallagher have co-authored a letter to US Attorney General Garland asking for the US Department of Justice to provide assistance with the investigation of this attack.
“It’s perplexing that Jane’s Revenge has not only taken credit for the fire bombing of our headquarters, but they have also threatened our personal safety and promised to continue this extreme violence to other pro-life organizations across the nation, and three weeks later not even a single person of interest has been named,” said Julaine Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Action.
Appling added, “Both Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes and Governor Tony Evers fell extremely short of showing any interest in bringing those responsible to justice and instead exhibited empathy with pro-abortion activists and their emotional reaction to overturning Roe. Therefore, we believe it necessary to offer this reward to help move this investigation along.”
