HAGER CITY, WI - Today, the Van Orden Campaign launched a new radio ad featuring Pepin County Sheriff Joel Wener.
Sheriff Wener explains how Ron Kind lied to the Sheriffs of the 3rd District. Kind told them he had their back and would not support removing qualified immunity for police officers days after he had cosponsored a bill to do just that.
From Portland Oregon to New York City and now here in Wisconsin, the liberal mob has overrun our cities, defunding our police, and your congressman Ron Kind is playing politics with our lives.
Pepin County Sheriff Joel Wener, “shortly after the riots in Minneapolis, Congressman Ron Kind held a conference call with sheriffs in Western Wisconsin, Congressman Kind told us that quote he had our backs and he was for law enforcement. I wish it was true. The very next day in Washington, Congressman Kind voted with Nancy Pelosi for a bill that would eliminate protections for my deputies and officers across Wisconsin while they’re on the job. Qualified immunity. But it’s worse than that we found out Ron Kind was a cosponsor of the bill, he signed on a week before he told us he had our backs. It was all politics. To me, a man’s word is his bond, but Ron Kind doesn’t back our police.
