PowerUp: Rebecca Kleefisch says John Chisholm must go

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 22,  2021

Republican candidate for governor, Rebecca Kleefisch, says Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm must be held accountable for the low bail that freed the man suspected of mowing down scores of victims in the Waukesha Christmas Parade.

Now that Gov. Tony Evers has an official complaint from Milwaukee County citizens in hand, he needs to move quickly to remove a district attorney who predicted long ago that his liberal criminal justice policies would kill innocent people, Kleefisch said.

“There are families in Waukesha who won’t be spending their Christmas with their loved one because their loved one died at the hands of someone who is absolutely monstrous, merciless in what he did. Someone needs to be held accountable,” Kleefisch told Empower Wisconsin’s M.D. Kittle Tuesday on the Vicki McKenna Show.

“We’ve got to be serious about violent crime, and in Milwaukee County the District Attorney’s Office is not,” added Kleefisch, the former two-term lieutenant governor under Gov. Scott Walker. “John Chisholm needs to be fired.”

Kleefisch is our guest on this edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
