- After Michels shared a confident post-debate tweet, Evers sent out a panicked email asking for help.
- Evers complains in the email that Michels “continued the defining theme of his campaign: Say whatever it takes to gain power so he can turn his radical vision to end fair elections and ban abortion into our reality in Wisconsin.”
- Evers promised, “We will not release violent criminals” in 2018. Yet, today he has released around 883 if not more, dangerous and violent criminals into Wisconsin.
- During the BLM movement and riots, Evers said he expected local leaders to respond “quickly and forcefully, not against protesters, but actually accomplishing some things to alleviate the systemic nature of this curse (racism) on our nation and our state.”
- Evers said repeatedly that he couldn’t or wouldn’t push mask mandates or lockdowns, but then did it anyways.
- Evers has consistently lied and switched positions on important matters while servings as Governor.
Tim Michels confidently shared a post-debate tweet, “We won the debate. Now let’s win the election.” In the meantime, Gov. Evers sent emails in a panic after floundering during the debate. At the same time Michels posted the tweet about the debate being a success, Evers sent out an email to supporters asking for more money (precisely $22,419) to help him win.
Gov. Evers can see the Governor’s position slipping through his fingers, and it’s only a matter of time. Instead of showing confidence in himself, he holds out his solo cup for more of your money.
Point One Finger, Three Point Back to You
In the email Lake Country Tribune received, Evers complains that Michels “continued the defining theme of his campaign: Say whatever it takes to gain power so he can turn his radical vision to end fair elections and ban abortion into our reality in Wisconsin.”
He adds, “For months, he’s been using his family fortune to fund attack ads that lie about my record, and now his allies are attempting to shape post-debate coverage for Wisconsin voters who were too busy to tune in.”
Keep in mind this statement is coming from the man who promised, “We will not release violent criminals” in 2018. Yet, today he has released around 883, probably many more by now, dangerous and violent criminals into Wisconsin. Including sadistic murderers and rapists.
It’s the same man who supported the BLM movement and riots while buildings were burnt to the ground, homes were being vandalized or destroyed, and residents were scared and looking for guidance. Evers said he expected local leaders to respond “quickly and forcefully, not against protesters, but actually accomplishing some things to alleviate the systemic nature of this curse (racism) on our nation and our state.”
It’s the same man who said he couldn’t or wouldn’t push mask mandates or lockdowns but then did it anyways. He reassured Wisconsinites, “We do not have plans to shelter in place. We think what we have going right now works and will continue to work.” Then he rolled out his “safer at home plan” to shelter in place, which he then extended.
He also said multiple times that he did not have the power to issue a mask mandate. But then, he issued a mask mandate, surprising Wisconsinites yet again. (Sounds similar to what he’s been saying about the released murderers/rapists, “I don’t have the power to do that.” Yet, he is doing precisely that.
The Evers administration also supported the free expression of protestors and softly guided them regarding staying safe from COVID-19, but was highly opposed to Trump rallies held in Waukesha and Green Bay.
DHS Secretary-Designee Palm stated, “Please, if you plan to protest, do it as safe as you can, wear a mask, stand 6 feet apart, and wash your hands whenever you can.” Loads of videos and photos circulated online of the rioters who were continuously labeled as “protestors” by the left; it was clear that not many of them were following her advice. Many torched cities should-to-shoulder, wreaking total havoc throughout the state. Some of them wore masks, and others didn’t.
When Trump was scheduled to hold rallies in Green Bay and Waukesha, Evers said Trump rallies were a bad message and wanted them gone. Stating, “those events have people sitting shoulder-to-shoulder, talking to each other, yelling, screaming, dancing, without masks, and so that’s just not where I believe we need to be as far as sending a message.” The rioters (or, as he would say, protestors) could do as they pleased.
Gov. Evers is trying to deflect the negatives off of himself and onto his opponent, Tim Michels. Tony Evers has lied to Wisconsinites time and time again, and now he wants to call Tim Michels the liar.
Gov. Evers Insists That Michels Ads Lie
Since Evers is up for re-election, now would be an excellent time to cave into things voters want. Hence the new funding for law enforcement. Although, what better time to invest more in public safety and law enforcement than while you are actively releasing hundreds of killers and violent criminals into communities all over Wisconsin? It seems this was a grand opportunity for Evers to look like a hero, even though he simply swept his dirt under the rug and refused to take responsibility for his mess.
Tim Michels released a new campaign ad called “Doorstep.” The ad features various police officers speaking about prioritizing the safety and security of Wisconsin communities, including how Evers has failed bitterly.
Michels tweeted on October 5, “Tony Evers has released hundreds of violent criminals from prison. He’s making Wisconsin less safe. I’ll keep dangerous criminals behind bars.” He also links to his new campaign ad, “Doorstep.”
Tim Michels has launched spot-on ads regarding Evers’ failure to serve, protect, and prioritize Wisconsin. Yet, Evers calls him out for using his family fortune to fund “attack ads that lie about his record.” Let’s quickly recap just a handful of occasions where Evers made questionable decisions regarding law enforcement and crime.
Evers stood with the Defund the Police movement. He vetoed a bill that would have cut shared revenue payments to municipalities that defund police.
He also was in favor of ending felony bail-jumping penalties in his budget.
Evers attacked local police with an inflammatory tweet during the Kenosha riots. During the riots, Evers failed to support law enforcement by refusing aid, taking too long, and not sending enough guardsmen to help control the violence on the city streets.
Tony Evers refused to make law enforcement’s life easier until he was backed into a corner. The radical liberal has made his stance on law enforcement clear on various occasions. Yet, since it’s an election year, he is pouring funds on law enforcement from his federal COVID relief campaign slush fund.
Tony Evers lied about not having any authority over those murderers and rapists released. We continue to hear the term “mandatory release,” although we already know that the parole list did not include any mandatory releases. They were all discretionary. We also know that Evers can appoint who he wants as the Parole Commission chair and that he has direct control over the DOC. Evers also doubles down on his parole commission, stating that the process has worked. Victims’ families who weren’t notified about the paroles greatly disagree with him.
Evers and his DOC expanded prison early release programs, ER and CIP. According to the state’s data, about 40% of those criminals are rearrested within two years. Even though the system is ineffective and endangers public safety, he still chose to fund it and expand it.
Crime is a primary concern for Wisconsin voters, and all Evers can talk about is reproductive rights and racism. By providing millions in funding to the police now that it’s time for the people to cast their votes again, he is simply hoping that Wisconsin will forget just how poorly he has performed over the years.
