The performance of Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs is under fire from a state lawmaker.
Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, is calling for a review of Tubbs' work at the Capitol and the way he's handled protests there.
Tubbs had generally received good marks from both protesters and other law enforcement agencies for the way he's handled Capitol protests, but Nass is claiming the chief didn't do enough to rein in the protests.
"(Tubbs) treated them (protesters) from the get-go with kid gloves," Nass said.
Nass said that while the number of protesters at the Capitol has dwindled since the spring, the aggressive nature of the protesters has escalated.
Nass said Tubbs is the person to blame for this increase in aggression because he's gone out of his way to go easy on protesters occupying the Capitol for weeks earlier this year.
