MADISON, WI -- (Press Release) -- Senator Rob Stafsholt (R - New Richmond) issued the following statement in response to Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg), Senate President Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), and Chair of the Senate Committee on Elections, Election Process Reform and Ethics, Senator Kathleen Bernier (R-Chippewa Falls) issuing a subpoena to the City of Madison for their withheld election records:

“It is completely unacceptable that the City of Madison refused to allow the Legislative Audit Bureau to have access to their election records. Therefore, I support issuing a subpoena to the City of Madison to ensure that those documents are turned over.”

“My colleagues and I have passed several bills that would have made elections more transparent, unfortunately, Governor Evers vetoed those bills. We know Governor Evers will continue to stand in the way of any type of common sense election reform. We must continue to do everything in our power to restore integrity and trust in the election process. I fully support this action by the Senate.”
