Wisconsin Reps to Garland: Stop ‘pro-abortion extremists’

Empower Wisconsin  | May 12, 2022

MADISON — Wisconsin’s Republican House representatives are calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to launch a federal investigation into the attack on Wisconsin Family Action’s Madison office.

The letter to Garland — signed by Reps. Bryan Steil (R-Janesville), Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau), Glenn Grothman (R-Glenbeulah), Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), and Mike Gallagher (R-Alouez) — and accompanying press release are a stern rebuke of the liberal politicization of the Attorney General’s office.

“Rather than focusing on defusing threats against Americans for their political beliefs, the Department of Justice has, in the last 17 months, spent time and resources to target conservatives while taking a hands-off approach to left-wing violence,” the letter states.

“The arson of Wisconsin Family Values’ office in Madison must be investigated thoroughly and Attorney General Garland must put partisanship aside to put a stop to these pro-abortion extremists, who have already promised more violence if their demands are not met.”

Madison Police continue to investigate what they have described as an act of arson that damaged a corner office and burned books and carpeting before firefighters doused the flames. No one was injured. Federal law enforcement reportedly is assisting, although details of their involvement are unknown. There were no suspects in custody as of Wednesday. But a radical organization calling themselves “Jane’s Revenge” claimed responsibility for the attack. The group promised more violence to come if similar organizations don’t disband nationwide.

In their letter to Garland, the lawmakers note that they have heard from pro-life clinics in Wisconsin that have concerns about the security of their facilities and staff.

“In response to the unprecedented and clearly politically motivated leak of the majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson, abortion supporters across the country have engaged in animated and even violent activity,” the lawmakers write. “We have seen mobs outside of the homes of Supreme Court Justices attempting to harass, intimidate and influence the legal proceedings of the justices.”

The House members say they are particularly concerned that rhetoric from some has escalated the rage and hostility. They point to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and his threatening comments in March 2020 when he declared, “I want to tell you (Justice Neil) Gorsuch. I want to tell you (Justice Brett) Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

And they note more recent threats from liberal politicians like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who tweeted that “…This moment has to be a call to arms … we will not surrender our rights without a fight.”

In the letter, the Republicans demand answers to several questions, first and foremost, “What steps has the Department of Justice taken to assist the Madison Police Department in its investigation of the burning of the Wisconsin Family Action office in Madison?”

The congressmen also want to know if the DOJ is aware of other threats against pro-life organizations, and what resources will it provide to assist local agencies in dealing with harassment, threats, intimidation and acts of violence against pro-life groups.

“We condemn acts of violence and intimidation by pro-abortion extremists and demand the Department continue to support state and local law enforcement to prevent similar acts in our country,” the letter states.
