MADISON — (WORT) The Democratic Party of Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit to obtain prosecutor training videos conducted by Waukesha District Attorney Brad Schimel, the GOP candidate for Attorney General. The Democrats filed an open records request for the videos in September which was denied by the state Department of Justice over concerns of victim privacy. The Democrats allege that Schimel made racist and sexist remarks in these videos and are asking a Dane County Judge to make them public. WORT’s Dylan Brogan reports.
