Tool of the Week: Politics-first Josh Kaul

MADISON — Last week, the Republican-led Legislature had to vote on a resolution requiring Attorney General Josh Kaul to follow the law.

Let that sink in.

The people who pass the laws had to pass one to remind the state’s top law enforcer to do his job.

Republican leadership earlier had asked Kaul to join 13 other attorneys general in a lawsuit against the federal government for prohibiting states from using federal COVID-19 response funding to cut state taxes. So states must cede their authority to the federal government in exchange for “free” money.

Sadly, Kaul doesn’t see any constitutional problems with the arrangement. More so, the Democrat AG responded to the lawmakers’ request with a smug political comment befitting a hyper-partisan.

“If the Majority Leader and Speaker would like to use federal funding to cut taxes, they should expand Badgercare, saving a huge amount of state tax money, rather than advocating for Wisconsin to join a strained lawsuit,” he said.

His insufferable response forced the Legislature to compel the attorney general to do what the law says: represent the state if “requested by the governor or either house of the legislature.” That involves civil or criminal matters “in which the state or the people of this state may be interested.”

As he has so often done, Kaul put liberal politics ahead of the interests of the state and its taxpayers.

For that, the attorney general is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
