Wisconsin Senate, Bipartisan Commission Butt Heads Over Top Election Chief
After being rejected by the Wisconsin Senate, a bipartisan commission has voted to retain Mike Haas through April 30 as the state’s top election official.
Attorney General Brad Schimel has told Gov. Scott Walker someone new must be appointed in order to be in compliance with state law.
Commissioner Mark Thomsen, however, contends only the bipartisan commission has the authority to remove Haas from the post.
Upcoming elections take place on February 20 and April 3.
