Schimel didn't understand rape kit question

MADISON, Wis. - Attorney General Brad Schimel's spokesman says Schimel didn't understand the question when a member of his sexual assault response team asked how many sexual assault kits have been tested.

A member of the Attorney General's Sexual Assault Response Team asked Schimel during a meeting Tuesday whether it was true only 60 kits have been tested. Schimel said he didn't know where that number came from, even though his spokesman, Johnny Koremenos, told The Associated Press on Monday that the state crime lab has tested 13 kits and a private lab has tested 50.

Koremenos said in an email after the meeting that Schimel didn't understand the question because the total added up to 63 and he is being very precise about the number.
