Ignorance is political bliss for Evers

Empower Wisconsin | June 11, 2020

MADISON — We’ve learned again this week that Gov. Tony Ever’ ignorance is astounding. 

Following revelations that Team Evers secretly recorded conversations with Republican leaders, the governor’s spokeswoman told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Democrat was not aware of the recording. 

Another example of things this governor should know but doesn’t. 

Remember, “You caught me”? 

In early March, Evers vetoed a bill that passed on an unanimous voice vote (that means every single Republican and Democrat voted for it) in both houses. The bill would have allowed non-profit groups like VFWs and fire departments to host paddle wheel meat raffles. 

Asked by a reporter why he killed a bill that had unanimous support, the Democrat said, “You caught me.” His handlers had to get back to the reporter and explain why the governor vetoed the bill. 

Remember when the governor’s office refused to turn over just one day of the governor’s emails. Evers’ legal counsel had the gall to suggest Fox6’s request was a burden on the taxpayer. 

“Wisconsin taxpayers should not be asked to pay the salary of a state employee to work exclusively on an insufficiently specific request for weeks, to the detriment of all other requests, requesters, and job responsibilities,” Erin Deeley, assistant legal council wrote. 

When asked about the open record request at a press conference, Evers claimed ignorance. 

“Governor, you’ve said that you are committed to transparency, so why is your office denying our request for one day’s worth of your emails?” the Fox6 reporter asked.

“When? No, I have no idea,” the governor responded. 

“No one’s told you?” the reporter asked. 

“No,” Evers said. 

When provided details of the request, Evers acknowledged more than his ignorance. 

“Oh, that’ll be pretty, pretty boring I’ll tell ya. If I do one email a day, that’s an extraordinary day… It’s pretty boring. I mean, I can’t remember sending an email all week,” he said.

To Evers, ignorance may be bliss, but Wisconsin is beginning to open its eyes to how corrupt this liberal’s administration is.
