December 16, 2015

Governor Walker signed Assembly Bill 388 into law today, replacing the independent Wisconsin Government Accountability Board with bipartisan elections and ethics enforcement commissions. WDC executive director, Matt Rothschild, stated: "It is a sad day for democracy in Wisconsin. At best it will bring more partisanship, more paralysis. At worst, it brings more corruption and more criminality."
