Department of Justice Employees Sign Nondisclosure Agreement on Schimel Request

Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel is asking every at the Department of Justice to sign a nondisclosure agreement covering their time in office – and even after they leave. Schimel reportedly sent an email to staffers last month telling them to sign the statement, which included a spreadsheet with 129 employees who had yet to sign it. The agreement applies to full-time employees, limited term employees, contractors, interns, externs, and law enforcement partners. Spokespeople for Schimel say the agreement is not at all related to his run for re-election or the fact that it was finalized a month after Democrat Josh Kaul entered the race.
