Tom Tiffany

MADISON — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers chided a Republican lawmaker Thursday who called for the resignation of the state's health secretary, saying it was an “insane statement.”

Sen. Tom Tiffany, who was elected to Congress in a special election on Tuesday, said Palm should step down as leader of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services because of how she handled the state's response to the coronavirus pandemic, which Tiffany referred to as the “Wuhan virus.”
