MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A long-time prosecutor who’s been representing State Capitol protestors is taking a new job in the Legislature.
Bob Jambois was named Tuesday as the new chief of staff for Democratic Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca. Both men are from Kenosha.
Jambois served for almost two decades as the Kenosha County district attorney, before he became the general counsel in Jim Doyle’s department of transportation.
For the last few months, Jambois has been representing Capitol protestors for free, helping those who’ve been arrested for violating the Walker administration’s policy on getting state permits for Capitol gatherings.
Jambois says he will not take new cases – and he’ll work nights and vacation days to finish his pending court proceedings.
