Peg Lautenschlager Has Died

RIP and condolences to her family.

Former state representative and Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager, the first woman to hold the post, has died, according to Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh), who issued a news release Saturday.

She is believed to have been 62 years old. Cause of death was not immediately reported.

I had the opportunity to debate her several times on WPR’s Week in Review program. Her articulate advocacy for her views will be missed.
