Lawmakers Want Chisholm Removed

Republican state legislators from the Waukesha area are demanding that Governor Tony Evers remove the Milwaukee County DA.

They want John Chisholm sacked, because his office recommended one-thousand dollars bail for Darrell Brooks, just days before Brooks allegedly plowed an SUV into the Waukesha Christmas parade, killing six and injuring dozens more. Governor Evers says the process requires a complaint against Chisholm originate from Milwaukee County.

“They have a process, simple. I get a letter from somebody from the county requesting that process be initiated, I will initiate it.”

Evers has not called for Chisholm to resign. The court commissioner who approved that bail amount – which Chisholm called “inappropriately low” – has been reassigned.
