Palm was just found to have broken the law and abuse her power in an effort to strip Wisconsinites of their civil rights. It would be insane to let this tyrant remain in power for a moment longer. Unless, of course, Governor Evers wants to take responsibility for his administration’s unlawful behavior.
MADISON – Democratic Gov. Tony Evers chided a Republican lawmaker Thursday who called for the resignation of the state’s health secretary, saying it was an “insane statement.”
Sen. Tom Tiffany, who was elected to Congress in a special election on Tuesday, said Palm should step down as leader of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services because of how she handled the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, which Tiffany referred to as the “Wuhan virus.”
Evers stopped a news conference on the virus to speak about Tiffany’s statement about 20 minutes after he released it.
“Senator Tiffany please, you just won an election. Just relax,” Evers said. “This is an insane statement. We talk about trying to tone down the rhetoric and I’ve done everything I can do to that. To make a statement like that about someone who has dedicated her life to saving lives, please sir give us a break. You’re headed to Washington, D.C. I know you’re better than this.”
