Speaker of the Assembly Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and Rep. Jeff Stone (R-Greendale) said on Wednesday that "GAB must be held accountable" after RightWisconsin broke the news that the state agency was disregarding the law.
The comments come after the GAB told RightWisconsin they will not conduct a scheduled purge of voters from the State Voter Registration System (SVRS) who haven't voted in four years until after the April 2, Spring Election. According to state statute, the purge is supposed to take place 90 days after a general election.
A GAB spokesman told RightWisconsin "The statutes set standards for when municipalities are to complete entering voter history information in SVRS, but they may not be practical."
"The G.A.B. is undermining the integrity of our election process," said Speaker Vos. "GAB officials are intentionally ignoring a state statute and it must stop."
"I have been closely observing the election practices since I was elected to the Assembly and the G.A.B. has to be held accountable," said Representative Stone. "We ask our citizens to follow the law; government agencies have no right to disregard it."
