Bernier Threatens Legal Action

Republican state Senator Cathy Bernier has sent a letter to Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug LaFollette, demanding that he send documents to Congress and other states as required.

“My next step will be pursue legal action to force you to do the job. You are paid by the citizens of the state of Wisconsin. This session is coming to a close. You need to do your job.”

The documents are an application to Congress and other state legislatures for a Convention of States, as called for in a joint resolution passed by the Wisconsin legislature in January.

La Folette told the State Journal his office has been dealing with staffing and budget issues, but that he expects to meet Bernier’s August 1 deadline.
