One Wisconsin Now Statements on Van Hollen Announcement

‘Wisconsin’s Most Partisan, Political AG Heads Out the Door with Dubious Legacy,’ Says One Wisconsin Now

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding Attorney General JB Van Hollen’s announcement this morning he would not run for re-election. One Wisconsin Now has gathered thousands of signatures demanding Van Hollen investigate the ongoing United Sportsmen scandal of Gov. Scott Walker and his Republican-controlled legislature attempting to divert potentially millions of taxpayer dollars to a Republican front group.

Wisconsin has never had a more partisan, political Attorney General than Republican corporate lackey JB Van Hollen.

“Wisconsin has never had a more partisan, political Attorney General than Republican corporate lackey JB Van Hollen.

“There is no better example of Van Hollen’s partisan fealty than his attacks on voter rights to serve the Republican partisan political agenda. Van Hollen spent the better part of a decade trying to manufacture non-existent evidence there is rampant voter impropriety in Wisconsin. Now, as the book closes on JB Van Hollen, the fair question to ask is: When it comes to voter fraud, was Van Hollen incompetent, or simply lying?”
