PowerUp Podcast: Rep. Brandtjen on removing John Chisholm

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 16,  2021

MADISON — State Rep. Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) has little faith that Gov. Tony Evers will do the right thing and remove Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm from office, even if a Milwaukee County resident steps forward with a complaint against the controversial prosecutor.

“But I think the most important thing is that we have to put that marker out there,” Brandtjen told Empower Wisconsin on Wednesday’s Vicki McKenna Show. “Chisholm should be fired.”

Brandtjen was one of more than a dozen Waukesha-area Republican lawmakers who sent Evers a letter urging him to remove Chisholm. The Democrat DA has faced mounting criticism for what Chisholm concedes was “inappropriately low” bail for Darrell Brooks, the suspect in the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre. Chisholm has blamed “human error” for the $1,000 bail that Brooks, a felon with a long and violent rap sheet, paid just days before he is suspected of killing six people and injuring scores more in the Nov. 21 rampage.

As of Wednesday, no Milwaukee County resident had filed a verified complaint with the governor seeking Chisholm’s removal.

Brandtjen said Brooks wasn’t the first violent criminal Milwaukee County’s revolving door criminal justice system has set free on low bail, and he definitely won’t be the last. But Milwaukee’s crime problem — the city just broke last year’s record for homicides — is now becoming everybody else’s crime problem because of Chisholm’s brand of “progressive justice.”

Rep. Janel Brandtjen is our guest on this edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
