[Madison, Wisc…] In a heated debate over multiple ballot integrity bills, Sen. Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) drew comparisons between Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) and Joe McCarthy on the Senate floor. Jauch made his comments after Lazich mentioned the multiple “irregularities” she saw during the Racine recount last year. Lazich authored the 4 bills that passed on Tuesday, which aim to increase fraud prevention during elections. The bills are now headed to the Assembly, which is also in session this week.
