WI Republicans Named

By  | 

The names of two Republican State Assembly members from western Wisconsin surfaced during the misconduct trial of former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen. Jensen, a Waukesha Republican, was found guilty last week of three felony misconduct in office charges.
Jensen was accused of using his capitol staff and state workers to campaign for GOP candidates.
Rob Kriebich's name was mentioned. A former caucus graphic artist said he produced Badger and Packer football scheduled for the Eau Claire Republican.
Kreibich said the work in question was done nearly 10 years ago before the end of legislative caucuses. Those caucuses were supposed to help lawmakers develop public policy, but instead ended up being used for campaigning.
Kreibich added that Assembly members of both parties benefitted and that this occured several years ago and has been taken care of.
Also, a former caucus worker said that he made fundraising calls on the behalf of Terry Musser of Black River Falls. Musser said that he had no idea the worker raised any money for him.
