Ziegelbauer steps back, Vos mum on attorneys’ fees in voter ID case
MADISON A Wisconsin legislator decided not to intervene in a court case on the state’s voter ID law after a complaint was lodged about who’s paying for his legal help, according to a news story by Madison’s WKOW-TV.
Rep. Bob Ziegelbauer (I-Manitowoc) is stepping down because he doesn’t know who is paying the attorneys who represent him in the case.
An advocacy group, One Wisconsin Now, alleges that Ziegelbauer and Rep. Robin Vos (R-Burlington), may be receiving free legal representation on the case, which is against state ethics rules.
Vos, who represents Wisconsin’s 63rd Assembly District—which under redistricting, includes part of Spring Prairie Township—declined to comment on who is paying for the attorneys, but his spokesperson said the attorneys are working with state officials.
