The dismissal of the last of eight citations against Capitol protester Jason Huberty could be a game changer in the Capitol crackdown against the Solidarity Singers and other protesters, with more seeing their tickets dismissed.
But those who have served as conductors of the Solidarity Sing Along may have reason to worry.
The crackdown launched by Capitol Police Chief David Erwin last September has resulted in about 120 citation so far, but state Department of Justice prosecutorsí decision to dismiss Hubertyís final citation could affect dozens of them.
The prosecutorsí decision followed a ruling by Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese that the administrative rule under which Huberty was charged didnít pertain to his behavior because he was merely a participant in the Solidarity Sing Along, a weekday lunchtime gathering in which protesters give voice to their abhorrence of Republican policies through song.
