Local citizens want Milwaukee’s crooked DA to go.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air reports:
Most of us stopped hearing about the Waukesha massacre after the national media found out the circumstances under which the perpetrator committed his heinous murders. The residents of Milwaukee County have made sure that Governor Tony Evers hasn’t stopped hearing about it, though. In a formal petition, citizens outraged over the ridiculously low bail set for Darrell Brooks in a previous vehicular assault want Evers to fire DA John Chisolm over bail policies he implemented.
Jason Calvi [local reporter] reports that Evers has the authority to dismiss Chisolm. Will he?
Milwaukee County residents have officially asked Governor Tony Evers to fire District Attorney John Chisholm. Evers says he’ll take the complaint seriously.
Wisconsin state law allows the governor to oust a district attorney for cause, but it requires a verified complaint filed by a taxpayer of the jurisdiction, which then starts a process. That document was handed over to the governor, asking Evers to remove Chisholm from office. …
“I think it’s in his best interest, and clearly, it’s in the best interest of the people of southeast Wisconsin to fire John Chisholm and make southeast Wisconsin a safer place,” said Orville Seymer, the complaint organizer who is also with conservative group Citizens for Responsible Government. Another conservative group, Empower Wisconsin, first reported the existence of the document, which FOX6 confirmed.
Seymer and six others signed the notarized, formal complaint asking Evers to remove Chisholm, pointing to the bail offered to the Waukesha Christmas Parade suspect before the attack.
“We’ve got six people dead, including an 8-year-old boy, people’s mothers and grandmothers, and there are thousands of people around southeast Wisconsin who are thinking, ‘That could have been my son, that could have been my mother, that could have been my grandmother’ and John Chisholm knew this could have happened,” said Seymer.
