National Guard commander resignsSubmitted: 12/09/2019
MADISON - The commander of the Wisconsin National Guard has agreed to resign following a federal investigation that found the Guard deliberately defied federal law, regulations and policies on handling sexual assault complaints.

The National Guard Bureau this year reviewed how Wisconsin commanders report, investigate and prosecute sexual assaults.

Gov. Tony Evers demanded Maj. Gen. Donald Dunbar's resignation Monday, hours before the bureau's report was released.

Dunbar agreed to step down effective Dec. 31. He has served as the Wisconsin Guard's leader since 2007 but his command has been rocked by allegations of officers brushing off sexual assault complaints and retaliating against victims.
