Published by CREW
On February 23, 2011, CREW sent out three requests under Wisconsin’s Public Records Law seeking records pertaining to the decision of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to dispatch the Wisconsin State Patrol last Friday to find Senate Democratic Minority Leader Mark Miller. The requests were sent to Governor Walker, state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, and his father, Stephen Fitzgerald, who in just the past few weeks was chosen to be Superintendent of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, which includes the state troopers. CREW seeks all records of communications concerning the location, attendance, or actions to compel any member of the Wisconsin state Senate to attend a legislative session as well as internal discussions within the three offices about whether to comply with Governor Walker’s request to send a state trooper to the home of Senator Miller.; CREW: Governor Scott Walker: Regarding Dispatching of Wisconsin State Patrol; Holder of Document: CREW; Producing Agency: Governor Scott Walker; Date Received: 4/18/11;
