- A spokesman for Sen. Tammy Baldwin says a former staffer who has filed an ethics complaint against the senator is letting herself be used as a pawn by Baldwin's Republican opponents.
John Kraus made the statement in response to the complaint Monday from Marquette Baylor.
Baylor was fired in January. Her complaint to the Senate ethics committee says Baldwin used her as a scapegoat in the office's handling of reports on overprescribing of narcotics at the VA hospital in Tomah.
Baldwin took responsibility for mishandling constituent concerns about the hospital in February.
