Ivacko reveals factors behind threats to local officials

Tom Ivacko, Wisconsin Public Radio: "There's been a very concerted, ongoing effort with very strong media behind it to convince people that there are enemies in the public sector, undercutting their own democracy and working against the interests of the people. In my opinion, that's probably the key factor here. On Jan. 6, 2021, we almost lost our democracy, so there is a lot of concern, legitimately. But it's not too late to kind of turn the tables here and start to put things back on a positive track. But it's going to take everybody, I think, engaging in this."
