Tony Evers-appointed judge forces stonewalling governor to turn over parole records

In case you missed it, yesterday a Tony Evers-appointed judge forced Evers’ parole commission to release public records detailing 2022 parole grants. This comes after months of stonewalling requests by journalists and elected officials, which ultimately led to a lawsuit.

Tony Evers can’t hide the truth forever. The people of Wisconsin deserve to know, today, which murderers and rapists have been granted discretionary parole this year and where Evers’ released criminals live. There is no excuse for defying the Court and further denying transparency for victims and the public.

As reported by Wisconsin Right Now, during Evers first three years as governor, at least 884 convicted criminals have been released early by his Parole Commission. Most are now living in Wisconsin communities. That list of offenders includes more than 270 murderers and attempted murderers, and more than 44 child rapists. However, Wisconsinites don’t know how many violent felons Evers has released in 2022 due to his refusal to comply with the state’s public records law.

Today is the day we should finally know the full extent of Tony Evers’ secretive parole spree.

But none of Tony's qualify, many of them should never be released and should not have been treated to such nice luxury conditions. As a compassionate person, I wonder how anyone could release this level of criminal ever! Imagine we have one of these murderers/rapists walking the streets of Onalaska, among the children of his victim, what a disgrace!
