We’re Watching … Attorney General Josh Kaul

Wisconsin voters in November also elected Democrat Josh Kaul to replace Republican Brad Schmel as the state’s Attorney General. A former federal prosecutor in Baltimore, Kaul has tried significant voting-rights cases. He also advocated for a more aggressive response to the opioid epidemic and spoke out about the need to eliminate Wisconsin’s rape-kit and DNA- and toxicology-testing backlogs. Kaul said that Wisconsin needs effective, even-handed enforcement of its environmental, consumer-protection, and labor laws. He also said that Wisconsin’s AG should be an independent watchdog for all Wisconsinites, not another political player. Finally, he was among those who attacked the lame-duck session Republicans used in December to limit early voting and take power from the AG’s office.
