Joe Knilans Contributors - True Colors

Today's True Colors Entry - Changing The Way We Do Business

Assembly Rep. Joe Knilans (44th District), a Republican, is one of Gov. Scott Walkers biggest boosters and an unwavering supporter of the class war Budget Repair Bill.

The freshman republican's term in office got off to a rocky start when it was discovered he did not live in the 44th district, but instead lived in the 45th. During his campaign he made statements that he was living in his brother's basement in the 44th despite Janesville property records showing that his brother's basement was unfinished (uninhabitable). Knilans soon moved to a new location in the 44th District. At the time, Knilans made statements on the Stan Milam Show that according to Dan Conry (WCLO radio host), assured voters he lived in the 44th District while he later acknowledged that he voted in the 45th district in the primary election. Knilans is hoping all of this is behind him as the legislator pushes for tighter voter residency rules including the new requirement disqualifying voters who fail to exhibit a state approved photo ID.

The district Knilans represents encompasses almost the entire city of Janesville. In November, Rock County voted Barrett 53% to Walker's 46% - keep in mind that was when area voters thought Walker was trustworthy. When Knilans voted for Walker's budget plan, he clearly voted against the wishes of the majority of his district.
