The Wisconsin Elections Commission chairman is calling on state senators to stand up to the majority leader and vote to confirm Michael Haas as administrator of the agency.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has refused to hold a confirmation hearing. Commission chairman Mark Thomsen called Fitzgerald a coward and a bully Tuesday. Thomsen says he thinks senators will "have the guts to stand up to the bully," speaking of Fitzgerald. A spokesperson for Fitzgerald says the Senate will reject the confirmation of Haas and Ethics Commission head Brian Bell with a vote January 23rd.
