MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Brad Schimel released the following statement Saturday after learning about the passing of former Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager.
“I did not know Peg well but many of the team members at the Wisconsin Department of Justice did, so I have learned more about her. Peg was passionate about her beliefs, cared deeply about her colleagues, and adored her family. I appreciate her many decades of public service and commitment to Wisconsin. She hired many of the fine public servants who now work at DOJ on behalf of the people of Wisconsin and her dedication lives on through their daily work.
“My sympathies and prayers go out to Peg’s family, friends, and colleagues.”
