Governor Evers Says Voters Should Decide if Milwaukee County DA is Removed From Office

(AP) Gov. Tony Evers says voters should decide whether Milwaukee County’s top prosecutor keeps his job.
A group of Milwaukee taxpayers has filed a complaint with Evers demanding he remove District Attorney John Chisholm from his post. Chisholm has taken intense criticism for allowing his office to recommend $1,000 cash bail for Darrell Brooks after he allegedly ran over the mother of his child with his SUV.
Days after he posted the bail he allegedly drove the SUV through a Waukesha Christmas parade, killing six people. Evers told WDJT-TV in a year-end interview that his office will investigate if the complaint is verified but he’d rather the voters decide Chisholm’s fate rather than “kick someone out of office.”
