Dear editor,

So let me get this straight. The Republicans, who claim to be conservative and fiscally prudent, have so far wasted over $600,000 of our taxes so that Michael Gableman can travel the state to attend partisan political events and spread conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. 

I guess there are no other needs in the State of Wisconsin where $600,000 couldn’t have been better used?  How about it Senator Petrowski,  Rep. Snyder, and Rep. Spiros?  Do you condone this wasting of our taxes and resources? 

I hope my fellow citizens will remember this abuse and waste of our taxes come election day in November.
