WisDems Statement on WEC Bob Spindell’s Admission of Milwaukee Voter Suppression

MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, new reporting revealed Republican WEC Commissioner Bob Spindell bragging to members of the 4th Congressional District GOP of a “well thought out multi-facetted plan” that resulted in a “great and important decrease in Democrat votes” and “major reduction happening in the overwhelming Black and Hispanic areas.”

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Devin Remiker issued the following statement:

“Bob Spindell’s effort to suppress the votes of Black and Hispanic Wisconsinites in Milwaukee is repugnant, and his continued service as a member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission is an unacceptable insult to the democratic process. From spreading conspiracy theories about our elections, to participating in Trump’s plot to install fraudulent presidential electors, Bob Spindell has proven time and again that he is unfit and unqualified to serve as an elections commissioner. It is long past time for Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu to end this clown show and rescind Bob Spindell’s appointment to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.”
