Nass says he's willing to testify, but only about the resolution

Rep. Steve Nass told reporters today that he is willing to testify about his resolution seeking Jeff Wood's expulsion from the Assembly, but he will refuse to answer any questions that he considers non-germane.

Rep. Mary Hubler, who chairs the committee overseeing the resolution, put off scheduling an exec session until after Nass testifies. She also expressed disappointment that Nass did not show up for today's public hearing so the committee could ask him questions.

Nass said he was in Whitewater with his sister helping their mother on several issues related to his father's state at a nursing home. He said he did not believe he needed to be at this morning's hearing because his resolution speaks for itself and that he believed Wood would try to use his appearance to distract attention from the charges against him.

"My being there would have allowed him to make it even more of a three-ring circus," Nass said.

Nass repeatedly said Dems were trying to drag out the process as long as possible because they need Wood's vote to push their priorities through and defended his decision to file the expulsion resolution against Wood but not other lawmakers who have faced charges. Nass said Wood video evidence from Wood's arrests make it clear he's guilty and that other lawmakers busted for drunk driving were only arrested once.

"This has risen to the level of repeated conduct," Nass said.
