Evers still silent on secret recordings

Empower Wisconsin | June 16, 2020

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers has yet to comment on whether he or his staff clandestinely recorded any more meetings with Republican legislative leadership. 

After Team Evers was caught last week making a secret recording of a meeting the governor had with Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau), Empower Wisconsin asked Evers’ comms director whether there were other recordings. She did not answer on Thursday or Friday.

On Monday, Empower Wisconsin sent a follow-up open records request, this time to Evers’ deputy legal counsel, Jacob Idlas. He acknowledged Empower Wisconsin’s request Monday afternoon and said a “complete response will be provided as soon as practicable and without delay.” 

Fitzgerald wants to know, too.

In a press release Monday noting the secret recording could bring a felony charge against the staff member who made it, Fitzgerald called on the governor to “assure legislators that no more recordings exist between our members and the governor or his staff.” 

The Evers administration has been widely criticized for its troubles with transparency and its failure to follow Wisconsin open records law.
