We deserve an attorney general who won’t put politics over health care.
The attorney general is supposed to be the people's lawyer, but Wisconsin’s Attorney General Brad Schimel prioritized taking health care away from Wisconsinites instead of solving the problems our state faces.
Instead of taking action on Wisconsin’s backlog of rape kits, Schimel did nothing for years. It wasn’t until he realized it would be a problem for reelection that he finally tested the kits.
That’s why we need to elect Josh Kaul on November 6th.

While in office, Schimel used every opportunity to sue along partisan lines to make it more difficult for Wisconsinites to access health care.
Brad Schimel's Attack on Health Care
Ending Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions
Brad Schimel currently leading the charge to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, including its protections for people who have pre-existing conditions.
If he gets his way, we’ll go back to a time when a person can be denied health insurance coverage for conditions like diabetes or arthritis.
Suing Planned Parenthood
Brad Schimel sued to defend a clearly unconstitutional law aimed at blocking Wisconsin women from accessing abortion care. Schimel appealed ruling after ruling, eventually taking the case to the Supreme Court, where they refused to hear it.
All told, he wasted $1.6 million in taxpayer money on the case. He made no secret that this case was a politically motivated.
He even said in a speech that it was an “honor” to have a case named Planned Parenthood v. Schimel.
Signing on to Partisan Lawsuits Across the Country
This has become a pattern for Schimel.
He’s made it a priority to support other politically motivated state AGs by signing Wisconsin on to their lawsuits and lending friend of the court briefs to a variety of cases designed to take away health care access.
