Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project, released the following statement:

“Just weeks ago, Wisconsinites voted overwhelmingly to ban the private funding of election administration and ensure that elections are run by officials accountable to the public. Rather than respect the will of voters, Dane County is already asking Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul to undermine these critical protections and reopen Wisconsin to Zuckerbucks-style private election influence schemes.

“Honest Elections Project filed a public comment to defend the plain language of the constitutional amendment that the public approved. The people voted overwhelmingly that Zuckerbucks have no place in Wisconsin. I hope Attorney General Kaul respects the will of voters and the language of Wisconsin’s constitution.”
