Kaul Reiterates His Opposition to Defunding the Police
Washington, DC — Yesterday Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul slammed his far-right Republican opponents for putting far-right, extremist politics over Wisconsinites’ public safety. He made it clear he does not support defunding the police, and outlined the importance of law enforcement and public safety for Wisconsinites.
Here’s some key quotes from the event:
“Wisconsin’s Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul does not support defunding the police, he said during a WisPolitics event Wednesday.
“Law enforcement is the backbone of our public safety efforts, and we need to provide more funding to law enforcement, not less,” Kaul said during the virtual Q&A, adding that such funding increases should come from both the state and federal governments.
“We shouldn’t be diverting resources from drug traffickers and murderers and violent crimes to serve a political agenda like the Gableman investigation,” Kaul said, referring to former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman’s monthslong investigation into Wisconsin’s 2020 presidential election.”
