Non-partisan Audit Shows Governor Evers Vetoed Needed Reforms
Madison – On Friday, the non-partisan Legislative Audit Bureau issued its review of the 2020 November Election which included 30 recommendations to the Wisconsin Elections Commission staff and 18 issues for legislative consideration. State Senator Alberta Darling issued the following statement in response.
“On Friday, the Legislative Audit Bureau confirmed many of the issues my colleagues and I raised after the election. Republicans put together a series of common-sense reforms that incorporate many of the recommendations in this non-partisan report.
Unfortunately, the Democrats voted against them and Governor Evers vetoed them. The governor even used his veto of these recommended reforms for fundraising. It’s disappointing that Democrats care more about their campaign coffers than the voters of Wisconsin.
My colleagues and I will continue to look for ways to restore that trust and help improve the way elections are handled in our state.”
Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha Counties.
