Isaac Weix (b. April 3, 1975) was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 92 of the Wisconsin State Assembly.[1]

Weix was a Democratic candidate for Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor in the recall election against incumbent Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. While he ran as a Democrat, Weix is actually a Republican and ran as a protest candidate in order to ensure a Democratic primary would be necessary.

Weix was also a Democratic candidate for District 10 of the Wisconsin State Senate in the 2011 recall election against incumbent Sen. Sheila Harsdorf.

Weix, a Republican supporter, ran as a protest candidate in order to necessitate a Democratic primary between himself and Shelly Moore. Moore defeated Weix in the July 12, 2011 primary.

In early June, a petition began circulating, urging Republicans to support Weix as a "protest candidate."

In response to Weix's candidacy, Shelly Moore released a statement, saying, "the Republican Party must immediately shut down this partisan, coordinated attack on democracy that wastes taxpayer dollars. These elections must get underway so the State can heal. These underhanded tactics serve no purpose but to divide us further."[6]

Republicans question Moore’s emails

Stephan Thompson, executive director of the Wisconsin Republican Party, filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on June 21, alleging Moore intentionally used her public school email account to coordinate work related to her recall campaign against Sheila Harsdorf. Republicans released the emails in question, which they obtained through an open records request from the Ellsworth School District.

One of the emails, dated March 10, 2011, states, "We are not supposed to use school email, but since all of our rights are being taken away, I don't frankly care."

Thompson stated, “this abuse of taxpayer funded resources deserves a full investigation by the Government Accountability Board. If she feels she is above the laws of this state, she certainly has no business having a hand in creating them.”[7]

Democratic Party press secretary Gillian Morris called the complaint a “blatantly political stunt,” saying, "Shelly was absolutely not using taxpayer dollars for campaign purposes -- no campaign even existed when these emails were sent.”[8]

Weix issued a statement calling on Moore to leave the race, stating, "For the sake of the integrity of the legal democratic process, and the reputation of the Democratic Party it is time for Ms. Moore to withdraw her candidacy."[9]
