Inspector General Scrapped

Inspector General Scrapped

There won’t be an inspector general coming to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

Lawmakers last week stripped the plan out of the new state budget. WEC Administrator Meagan Wolfe says it’s disappointing because she wanted an inspector general to handle voting and ballot complaints, and be a watchdog for elections in Wisconsin. Republican state Rep. Scott Krug says lawmakers would rather spend money on local election officials, and deal with any issues at the local level.
