Inauguration Day after an election is ideally intended as a time for bipartisanship and for avoiding political criticism.
Well, most of the time, anyway.
Josh Kaul, Wisconsin’s new attorney general, went after Republican lawmakers in his address shortly after being sworn in Monday.
Kaul criticized the majority legislators for passing lame-duck bills to weaken the power of his office, and of fellow Democrat, Gov. Tony Evers.
Kaul said he plans to take a lead on public safety issues in Wisconsin, including consumer protection.
