Insight 2015: AG Brad Schimel and Sheriff David Clarke Discuss the Top Issues facing Law Enforcement in Wisconsinvia Right Wisconsin on April 2, 2015
I’m proud to be law enforcement’s choice for attorney general and to be the only candidate in this race who has bipartisan support
“Law enforcement issues transcend partisan politics, said Clarke, a Democrat. “An Attorney General has to work with Democrat and Republican Sheriffs.”
“Happ’s unfounded allegations are the sad cries of a dying campaign.”
“The men and women who put their lives on the line during every shift deserve an attorney general who puts public safety ahead of political ambition,” said I.U.P.A. President Sam Cabral, who went on to praise Schimel saying his, “… innovative policies on gun crimes, heroin, human trafficking and violence against women are impressive.”
“I have repeatedly been asked to serve as an instructor to help train Wisconsin prosecutors in various procedures to improve Wisconsin’s public safety. I’m proud to be recognized as a trusted leader.”
“When I was first elected in 2008, it was early in 2009 when I talked to my former drug sergeant and I said, “where’s my heroin?” Because I could hear that other bigger counties had heroin and I was told we really didn’t have a heroin problem. And that’s very common for smaller areas not to understand the problem is there until it’s gotten much bigger. And so I think it’s unfair to criticize smaller counties and law enforcement for lagging behind when they just weren’t aware of the problem until it exploded. I actually have rolled out a comprehensive plan relating to the heroin and opiate epidemic and Brad knows that’s true.”
Did she take $180,000 from Daniel Reynolds?
Did she take tens of thousands of dollars from him while his case was pending in the DAs office?
Is Reynolds now free?
Did she work for Clyde Mattsen and try to get charges dismissed and sentenced reduced?
Did she say that the judge should take into consideration the fact the assaults took place in his own home?
“With a growing bipartisan team supporting him and plans for the public safety issues facing Wisconsin, Brad Schimel dominated the third and final attorney general debate from start to finish. My wish would be for every undecided voter in the state to watch a replay of the exchange. Brad Schimel knows what he’s doing and what he wants to do. From how to deal with the scourge of heroin, to how to help district attorney across the state, to the philosophical differences over the role of the attorney general, he was able to rely on his quarter century experience as a prosecutor and his work with law enforcement leaders across the state to clearly and decisively answer every question. Susan Happ is more activist than prosecutor and she lacks the depth to run the Wisconsin Department of Justice and that was clear from start to finish this evening. Tonight was a home run for Brad Schimel.”
“We continue to court votes in every corner of the state and are confident that Brad Schimel will win on Tuesday if his bipartisan supporters go to the polls. In the last two weeks, Brad Schimel has been in Lake Geneva, Milwaukee, Racine, Wisconsin Dells, Ripon, Kenosha, Madison, Manitowoc, Johnson Creek, Oshkosh, Burlington, Cedarburg, Appleton, Janesville, and Green Bay. As this race has evolved, voters are making the determination that Brad Schimel is not only law enforcement’s choice, but their choice to be the state’s top cop. Voters are realizing that Susan Happ is a lenient activist who is not ready to lead the Wisconsin Department of Justice.”
“Susan Happ believes that if one doctor says a defendant is mentally ill, that’s it, they definitely are and so they are not guilty and should therefore avoid consequences for their actions,” said Schimel. “Even a prosecutor with her limited experience of six years should know that’s not how it works”
“Brad Schimel has shown an approach that has been both sensible and fair towards the enforcement of regulations and laws that impact the small and independent business community.” Said Bill G. Smith, NFIB/Wisconsin state director. “We are confident that with Brad as our Attorney General, small businesses and their proprietors will be well protected.”
“I am honored to have earned the trust of independents, Libertarians, Republicans and Democrats during this race,” said Schimel. “They know that as attorney general I will put public safety ahead of politics and will enforce the without regard to partisan affiliation.”
“There is an advertisement polluting the airwaves right now, that not only misleads, it lies – about Brad Schimel’s record,” said former Wisconsin Lt. Governor Margaret Farrow, during a Milwaukee press conference Monday. “Brad Schimel is law enforcement’s choice for attorney general and has bi-partisan support, not only because of his detailed plans to improve Wisconsin’s public safety, but because of his stellar career as a prosecutor. Any attempt to demean his character and his record must be aggressively attacked and we’re determined to have the truth prevail. We believe the truth is far more powerful than the lies spread by the 30 second attack ads being run by allies of Susan Happ.”
“Susan Happ can hide from the voters, but she can’t hide from the fact she’s profited from some real sleaze balls.”
Brad Schimel, law enforcement’s choice, showed tonight why he will be the next attorney general of Wisconsin. He not only won the debate on substance and style, he showed voters why both Democrats and Republican leaders are supporting him.
“Pleas are common in every county, but an NGI plea in a domestic violence case is not common.” said three Wisconsin District Attorneys in a joint statement. “That these cases are routinely resolved this way by Susan Happ is quite odd and deserves more scrutiny.”
“Her allies are lying. An examination of Brad’s record, interviews during this race and statements during debates and public appearances prove that they are lying.”
“I’m proud to be law enforcement’s choice for attorney general, and I welcome the opportunity to hear directly from the men and women across Wisconsin who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe,” said Schimel. “As attorney general I will stay in touch and involved as well so I will always be aware of the most pressing issues across the state.”
“Our members want a strong leader at the Department of Justice; one that will keep the focus on public safety, not politics,” says Carmelo J. Patti, vice president of the Milwaukee Police Supervisors’ Organization. “The supervisors of the Milwaukee Police Department appreciate your awareness of the unique challenges facing the City of Milwaukee and how these challenges affect the State of Wisconsin.”
“Susan Happ’s allies were caught in a lie,” said Schimel campaign manager Johnny Koremenos. “We’re glad one station has confirmed that those lies will not be airing and we look forward to hearing similar news from other stations as well.”
“We knew Susan Happ has been hiding for weeks, waiting for her allies to come in and do her dirty work,” said Schimel campaign manager Johnny Koremenos. “They are outright lying, Wisconsin voters deserve better and stations must not be a party to this lie-filled smear.”
Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel released the following statement regarding Susan Happ’s Team’s attempt to give predators and defense attorneys access to Department of Justice training materials:
“This reflects very badly on Susan Happ. In their ongoing attempt to portray me as something I’m not, Susan Happ’s team has now desperately resorted to putting the public at risk. I have repeatedly been asked to serve as an instructor at state prosecutor training and other conferences across the state. During many of my […]
“For most of this campaign, Susan Happ has chosen to hide from voters. She’s barely seen outside of Milwaukee and Madison, she’s dodged several debates and let the disgraced former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager act as her campaign spokesperson when she wanted to sully the reputation of Daniel Reynolds’ victim.”
Thank you for your note. You raise an interesting point regarding cases that have been discussed in this campaign.
“Media reports indicate that in a three month period last summer for example, nearly half of the recommended charges of felon in possession of a firearm were never filed by the Milwaukee County DA,” said Schimel. “This is a public safety crisis I’d like to address, and I’m willing to work with local prosecutors to keep the streets safer.”
“Brad Schimel is not hiding, he’s continuing to meet with voters across Wisconsin to share his plans to improve public safety in Wisconsin. As this race continues to come into focus, we’re confident voters are making the determination that Brad Schimel is not only law enforcement’s choice, but their choice to be the state’s top cop. Susan Happ is a lenient activist who is not ready to lead the Wisconsin Department of Justice.”
After Being Hammered for Financial Relationship with Child Abuser While Case Was Pending in Her Office, Happ Declines Yet Another Debate Invitation
She’s under fire for her cozy relationship with a child abuser, and his subsequent lenient deal with her office, so Susan Happ has refused to appear on WisconsinEye to defend her record and share her activists’ vision for the department of justice.
Republican Attorney General Candidate Brad Schimel Talks Guns, Drug Enforcement at Wausau Campaign Stopvia WSAU -Wausau 550 AM 99.9 FM on October 13, 2014
“Brad Schimel will oppose any attempt to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “In contrast, his opponent has said she supports additional restrictions on right to carry permit holders. This is a critical election for the future of our Second Amendment rights and Wisconsin needs an Attorney General like Brad Schimel protecting our freedoms.”
Happ Lies to Statewide Debate Audience When Pressed for Facts About Leniency, Sordid Details of Her Financial Relationship with a Child Molester
“The more we know about Susan Happ, the worse it gets. It’s bad enough she was in a multi-year financial deal with a pedophile. It’s worse that she gained $180,000 in a real estate deal with him even as his case was within her office. It’s bad enough he got a plea deal that resulted in no prison time–not even a night in jail. But now, after hiding for months, when Susan Happ is confronted with the facts and pressed for an explanation, she lied on statewide television.
Susan Happ not only has a troubling relationship with a repeat abuser, she has a tenuous relationship with the truth.
For the second time in less than 24 hours, Susan Happ was absent from an attorney general candidate forum. This time, it was in her home county!
The Dairy Business Association today endorsed Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel for Attorney General saying they want an attorney general who will not use the Department of Justice as “a political weapon to prevent farm families from prospering.”
“Love and the law are colorblind, and that is how it should be. Many shameful, racist laws were changed over the course of time in this country by legislators, the courts and the people’s direct votes. But if Susan Happ wants to make up new laws, or change old ones, she’s running for the wrong job. I cannot imagine living in a state that banned interracial marriage, nor running for an office that would enforce such a law. I am running for attorney general of Wisconsin and vow to enforce and defend all of our laws. It is not the attorney general’s job to select which laws to enforce based on politics or personal ideology.”
“I’m proud to be law enforcement’s choice for attorney general, and I welcome the opportunity to hear directly from them about the most pressing issues in their communities as we tour areas in need of additional focus and concern,” said Schimel. “My bipartisan law enforcement endorsements are a direct result of my commitment to put public safety ahead of politics, and I’m eager to tour some of the frontlines in the fight against crime with my partners in keeping Wisconsin families safe.”
“As a child, I was a victim of sexual abuse. When it was time to fight for justice, I had Brad Schimel by my side,” said Kourtney (last name withheld for privacy purposes) who was victimized by a local politician who was convicted after being prosecuted by Brad Schimel. “He helped me feel comfortable during moments I was scared and at the end of the day, he did not fight to win, he fought for us. When it was all said and done, Mr. Schimel’s advice was not to let ‘him’ make me a victim the rest of my life and to make something of myself. Now, I take pride in my job, helping children, like he helped me.”
“Wisconsin’s farm families are the backbone of our state’s economy,” said Schimel. “The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and its members depend on legal stability to plan ahead so they can plant their crops and care for their livestock to grow the state’s agricultural economy.”
“As voters continue to pay more attention to this race, they are coming to the same conclusion the law enforcement community has: Brad Schimel is the right choice to put public safety ahead of politics. Brad Schimel is continuing his statewide, issues-based, bipartisan grassroots campaign. His opponent, Susan Happ, is ducking the public and the press, preferring instead to give access to the liberal special interest groups that like her plan to only defend the select state laws she favors. As Happ continues to dodge questions about her home sale and record in the courtroom, Brad Schimel is focusing on the issues that matter.”
“Brad Schimel is the only candidate with bipartisan endorsements and deep support across the state,” said Johnny Koremenos, campaign manager for Brad Schimel. “Susan Happ, whose campaign is stuck in neutral as she becomes engulfed in a cloud of ethical questions, is an activist who can only muster support from a handful of her fellow Democrats and the traditional lefty special interest groups.”
Brad Schimel, the only candidate for attorney general with a plan to combat violence against women on college campuses, has agreed to three forums on college campuses in October. Although she was invited, it is doubtful his opponent, Susan Happ, will participate in any of them.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and it provides us an opportunity to examine how to improve our efforts to prevent and prosecute these cases. Last week, on the campus of the University of Wisconsin – Lacrosse, I outlined a comprehensive plan to combat violence against women, which included preventative and prosecutorial measures regarding domestic violence and sexual assault (including date rape).
“I’m proud to have the Wisconsin REALTORS Association (WRA) vote of confidence to be Wisconsin’s next Attorney General,” said Schimel. “The WRA and its members depend on safe and vibrant communities and are an important part of Wisconsin’s economy.”
“As the father of two young daughters, I know how important it is that all kids have a safe and happy childhood,” said Schimel, the Waukesha County district attorney. “We can leverage existing resources to do more, but if necessary I will fight for additional resources and laws to combat the cowardly crime of child abuse.”
“Heroin is not just a big city problem, it’s clearly a top public safety issue facing our state and families across Wisconsin,” said Schimel, the Waukesha County district attorney. “While others talk about fighting the scourge of heroin, I’ve been leading the state in prosecuting Len Bias-type homicide cases and holding those who deliver the drugs that cause overdose deaths accountable and I will continue to do so as the next attorney general.”
“Tuesday was a microcosm of this entire race,” said Schimel campaign manager Johnny Koremenos. “Both candidates went to La Crosse. Brad Schimel went to the UW-L campus and outlined a plan to prevent, confront and combat violence against women. While Susan Happ spoke before a special interest group, promising not to defend state law.”
“I look forward to explaining my plans to put public safety ahead of politics and allowing voters the opportunity to contrast that with the activist approach of my opponent,” said Schimel.
Schimel’s Plan to Combat Violence Against Women Includes Focus on College Campuses, Domestic Violence
“Violence against women is pervasive in our society, it’s not just high profile athletes getting caught by hotel video cameras,” Schimel said. “We must prevent, confront and combat violence against women in every community, from Holmen to Hubertus and everywhere in between.”
“The WPPA’s mission is to protect and promote public safety, as well as the interests of the dedicated men and women that serve to provide it,” said WPPA Executive Director Jim Palmer. “After closely considering the candidates in this critical election, our board of elected officers from all across the state determined that Brad Schimel is the most qualified to serve as Wisconsin’s top law enforcement officer and promote public safety. Frankly, his experience and leadership are second to none, and we are proud to join the bipartisan ranks of law enforcement groups that are supporting his campaign.”
‘I have nothing to hide,” said Schimel. “I look forward to explaining my plans to put public safety ahead of politics and allowing voters the opportunity to contrast that with the activist approach of my opponent.”
“As the race comes into focus and voters begin to examine the candidates, they are making the same determination that Democratic and Republican law enforcement officers have made: Brad Schimel will put public safety ahead of politics and is the right choice for attorney general. While Susan Happ continues to be evasive, our positive, issues-based campaign is gaining momentum. We encourage voters to go to both candidates’ websites and compare their records and vision and they will understand why Brad Schimel is law enforcement’s choice and will be their’s as well.”
Brad Schimel, law enforcement’s choice for attorney general, has agreed to participate in at least four debates in the campaign’s final seven weeks.
“I’ve been leading the way on the issues that matter and I look forward to giving voters ample opportunity to compare the records and agendas of the candidates for the state’s top cop,” said Schimel.
“This is the right thing to do,” said Schimel. “The Department of Justice professionals know how front-line prosecutors work and what they need. The Attorney General can better advocate for additional prosecutors in the future based on needs and will be better-equipped to answer the legislature’s questions regarding resource allocations.”
Margaret Farrow, Wisconsin’s first female Lt. Governor, is an advisor to the Brad Schimel campaign. This morning she issued the following statement:
“The Schimel campaign has been asked by numerous reporters to comment on the latest news regarding Susan Happ and a $180,000 real estate deal she entered into with an alleged child molester and a subsequent plea deal he received from her office. Our initial response was to express sympathy for the victim.
“Today, while we remember all the victims from 13 years ago and their families and friends who continue to grieve, I am especially moved to honor the men and women of law enforcement and the other first responders who gave their lives on 9/11 in selfless public service. The memories of the 343 firefighters of FDNY, 23 officers with NYPD, 37 officers with the Port Authority, 15 EMTs and 3 court officers are always with us and we can honor their service by appreciating not only their sacrifice, but the work of the first responders and men and women of law enforcement in Wisconsin do every day. These public servants never know what the next shift has in store for them and they regularly put duty before themselves.”
“We can never again get to the point where we have such outrageous delays. This work is vital to solving and prosecuting ‘drugged driving’ cases and making our roads safer,” said Schimel. “The Department of Justice needs to have more oversight on these operations which greatly affect the outcome of the work done by frontline law enforcement statewide.”
“Small business owners, like the Wisconsin Restaurant Association members, provide tens of thousands of jobs in our state and serve millions of people each year. These hard working families depend on safe communities and a stable legal environment to operate their businesses and I’m proud to have their vote of confidence to be Wisconsin’s next Attorney General,” said Schimel.
On Monday, Juneau County District Attorney Michael Solovey announced he is supporting Schimel’s bid to become Wisconsin’s chief law enforcement officer. His support brings the total number of sheriffs and district attorneys who support Schimel to 89. The list includes nine Democrats who publicly endorsed the Republican District Attorney of Waukesha County to be Wisconsin’s top cop.
Today, Brad Schimel announced the endorsement of the Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA).
“Small business owners, like those represented by the Wisconsin Builders Association, provide tens of thousands of jobs in our state and they depend on safe communities and a stable legal environment to operate their businesses and I’m proud to have their vote of confidence to be Wisconsin’s next Attorney General,” said Schimel.
Republican Brad Schimel now has more support from Democratic law enforcement leaders than his opponent. Of the 88 law enforcement leaders who are backing Brad Schimel, nine are Democrats.
“Human trafficking is modern day slavery for the women and girls trapped in its web and has powerful links to drug and violent crime,” said Schimel. “It’s real. It’s here and I will continue to confront it as Attorney General.”
“No matter where you stand on the immigration issue, this is just crazy,” said Schimel. “We can’t simply let violent criminals roam our streets while Washington decides what to do. This is a shameful approach by the federal DOJ and I would hope my opponent would join me in condemning this irresponsible and potentially deadly lack of judgment on the part of the Obama Administration.
“For nearly a quarter century I’ve been a front line prosecutor and a partner with law enforcement who works hard to keep Wisconsin safe, secure justice and assist innocent victims,” said Schimel. “I am honored to have the support of Democrats and Republicans who know both candidates and chose me. I am honored to be law enforcement’s choice for attorney general.”
“The position of Attorney General is significant in Wisconsin. The Attorney General is Wisconsin’s top cop,” said Jerry Johnson, Wisconsin National Trustee Fraternal Order of Police. “We examined both candidates quite carefully and believe that Brad Schimel will put public safety ahead of politics. We are confident in Brad Schimel’s ability to represent the interests of Wisconsin Law Enforcement. We wholeheartedly endorse him and encourage our fellow Wisconsinites to do the same.”
Schimel Only Candidate With Credibility and Plan to Reform How State Investigates Internet Crimes Against Children

“While Brad Schimel was congratulating his opponent on her primary victory, Ms. Happ turned to negative political attacks,” said Schimel Campaign Manager Johnny Koremenos. “Because Ms. Happ is an inexperienced prosecutor with an incredibly thin record that pales in comparison to Brad Schimel’s, it’s clear she will make this race about everything other than public safety.”
“I congratulate my opponent on her victory in the Democrat primary and I look forward to the race because Wisconsin voters will have a clear choice between two starkly different candidates for Attorney General,” Schimel said. “With more than 24 years as an aggressive front line prosecutor and more than 150 jury trials, I have the experience to lead our public safety community from day one. Wisconsin’s deadliest public safety challenge is the epidemic of heroin and prescription opiate abuse. Yet I am the only candidate with a comprehensive plan to combat this problem.”
Waukesha County District Attorney and Attorney General candidate Brad Schimel today issued the following statement on the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decisions on Act 10 and Voter ID. “The rule of law prevailed in the courts today,” said Schimel. “That’s why Wisconsin needs an Attorney General who will defend the laws, not make the laws.”
