The Wisconsin State Senate voted Tuesday to reject the confirmations of the Ethics Commission Administrator Brian Bell and Elections Commission administrator Mike Haas. The vote was down party lines and Jay Heck from Common Core says no public hearing was held to discuss the appointments.
According to Heck, Haas and Bell and the public were not told why they are being rejected other than that the Republicans were “uncomfortable” with keeping them in their positions. Both Haas and Bell worked at the former nonpartisan Government Accountability Board. Heck says there may be a legal challenge to the confirmation rejections by his and other organizations.
