Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is using taxpayer resources to defend big government in its quest to stamp out free speech.  It’s not the first time.
In the spring of 2010, The Wisconsin Club for Growth sued the Government Accountability Board for violating our First Amendment right to free speech and our right to equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment. Much to our disappointment, the Attorney General initially decided to defend the GAB.  But after feeling pressure from conservative activists and talk radio hosts who expected him to uphold the constitution, Van Hollen instructed the GAB to back off or find outside counsel.
This week the Attorney General filed a notice of appeal challenging a court ruling that the Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) effort to strip Mukwonago High School of its Indians nickname and logo is unconstitutional.
We can’t think of one good reason to spend taxpayer funds defending the politically correct speech police at DPI, so we’ll leave it up to our readers to seek their own explanation.
