MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Government Accountability Board has appointed a staff attorney to oversee Wisconsin elections.
The board announced Wednesday that members selected Michael Haas to serve as Elections Division administrator during a closed session Tuesday.
Haas has served as a GAB attorney since 2008. He will now be responsible for overseeing the state's elections, a task that includes interacting with nearly 2,000 county and municipal clerks.
He replaces Nat Robinson, who was asked to resign. Board spokesman Reid Magney declined to elaborate, saying only the separation was cordial.
