Secret Recording Pushes Sides Further Apart

Things were not smooth
between the two sides before…and I doubt this latest dust up is going to help. Republican
leaders are outraged after learning  Governor Tony Evers staff recorded a telephone
meeting with them. According to Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, they
were not told ahead of time about the recording. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos
called the move “unprecedented and clearly outside the norm.” Evers
spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff said Evers was not aware the May 14 meeting to
discuss next steps for a statewide COVID-19 response was being recorded, and
that he’s directed staff that it won’t happen again. But Baldauff did not
apologize for the recording, and said the files were intended “for
internal use only.”
