MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Madison Capital Times said Assembly Democrat Chris Taylor is on a list of people being closely watched by State Capitol Police during the weekday sing-alongs by the Solidarity Singers.
Capitol Police Chief David Erwin began cracking down on protestors last fall – and the Solidarity Singers have refused to get state permits that are required for groups gathering in the Capitol.
The Cap Times quoted the Citizens Media Cooperative in saying that law enforcement is keeping tabs on 71 people – and 38 have received individual citations for protesting without permits.
Taylor, a Madison Democrat, is in her second term in the Assembly. The Cap Times said she criticized Erwin’s crack down last year – and the chief and a Walker administration official walked out on her during a meeting on the subject.
