On Wednesday, ex-Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs doubled down on his statements supposedly corroborating news of a security plan for Supreme Court Justices in early 2011. News of he increased security plan emerged when Justice Ann Walsh Bradley stated last week that a plan was put in place to protect herself and Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson from fellow Justice David Prosser.
To date, no one has publicly agreed with Bradley that was the reason an enhanced security plan was in place. When Justice Walsh Bradley first revealed the existence of the supposed security plan, the Department of Administration issued a statement saying they could not find any evidence of a particular security plan.
Last week, Tubbs confirmed the existence of the increased security in 2011. In Wednesday's statement, Tubbs said, "the plan for security as stated in Justice Bradley's recent memorandum is correct." "A plan was established to address security concerns," said the former police chief, "in fact, I at times personally patrolled the area."
Still, Tubbs is dancing around the reasons for increased security for Supreme Court Justices in early 2011. He omits the fact obvious that there was increased security throughout the Capitol building due to the turbulent occupation of the building by left-wing demonstrators.
To repeat, to date, no one has publicly agreed with Bradley that Justice Prosser was the reason for enhanced security provisions around the Supreme Court.
Rep. Steve Nass is calling Tubbs out. Again.
"Former Chief Tubbs lacks any credibility regarding security in the Capitol considering this was the guy that essentially sided with Act 10 union protested and handed the building to the mob," said Nass (R-Whitewater).
Nass continued, "As a former police chief, he knows the absolute requirement to document police actions through reports. I am left to believe he either acted incompetently by not documenting or he now has other political motivations."
Tubbs is now the director of Dane County's Emergency Management Department, working for Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney, who along with Walsh Bradley, is an ally of Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.
This is not the first time Nass has been critical of Tubbs. As seen in this video, he called on Tubbs to resign in 2011.
