Leaders of the Wisconsin Ethics Commission have written a leader to Senate Republicans ask for a public hearing for Chief Administrator Brian Bell.  Democrat David Halbrooks and Republican Katie McCallum say Bell’s performance as administrator has exceeded expectations.  They’re asking for the chance to speak about Bell’s qualification before the Wisconsin Senate votes on his confirmation.  Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald have called for Bell and chief elections official Michael Haas to resign due to bias in favor of Democrats.
