Wisconsin GOPer Eager To Ban Affirmative Action After Supreme Court Ruling


House candidate and Wisconsin state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R) on Tuesday said he would reintroduce legislation to ban affirmative action in the state following Tuesday’s Supreme Court decision upholding Michigan’s ban on factoring race into college admissions.

“People do not realize — the average person does not realize — how extensive race and gender preferences are in our society,” he told the Journal Sentinel.

Grothman has previously introduced similar legislation without any success, according to the Journal Sentinel. Additional lawmakers in the state legislature have yet to sign on to the proposal.
