Statement from Senator Jauch: Gogebic Taconite Security Firm is Illegal
The following is a statement from Senator Bob Jauch regarding the evidence that a security firm hired by Gogebic Taconite has been violating Wisconsin law.
State officials confirmed that Gogebic Taconite hired a security company, Bulletproof Securities from Arizona that is not registered in Wisconsin and therefore has been illegally providing services, perhaps for weeks, according to statements made by GTAC spokesperson Bob Seitz.
These actions demonstrate that GTAC has no respect for the public and no regard for the law. Had GTAC not been in such a hurry to hire a militia that’s armed more for war than defense of property, they could have hired a legally licensed Wisconsin firm and provided Wisconsin workers the opportunity to provide a safe working environment at the job site.
GTAC continually plays the victim but in fact they have no one to blame but themselves for hiring a security firm that has not complied with Wisconsin law.
