Capitol Crackdown On Peaceful Assembly
Assembly Representative Sondy Pope writes:
"Our often absent Governor is again out of the state he was elected to serve as he flits from fundraiser to fundraiser trying to build the case for his own presidential aspirations. Meanwhile back home he has left his Capitol Police Chief, David Erwin, with a questionably hefty pay increase and orders to silencethe voices of the last vestiges of his open opposition, the Solidarity Singers. The Republican Legislators continue to move his radical agenda forward as they avoid hearings on meaningful redistricting legislation, push for even more voter suppression, fail to create much-needed family sustaining jobs, continue their war on women, deny healthcare, and divert education funds to private schools. Despite the grim circumstances, I look forward to an opportunity to bring change to Wisconsin in the next election. We must continue to move forward and the ballot is the vehicle of change. Keep talking, keep singing, and let's be the change we want in Wisconsin."
State Senator Jon Erpenbach writes:
"This is an alarming video of a man who claimed to be an observor to police today. I once again ask Chief Erwin to be the bigger man and de-escalate the situation that he has created."
