MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - U.S. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner is demanding answers as to how the ATF botched an undercover operation in Milwaukee, while the supervisor in charge remained undisciplined.

Sensenbrenner, a Republican, is one of four congressmen who wrote ATF director B. Todd Jones on Friday for an explanation into Operation Fearless.

According to the Journal Sentinel, weapons were stolen from an agent and four people were wrongfully arrested, while the alleged felons walked.

The supervisor in question is Bernard Zapor, who was reassigned to the Phoenix Field Division. That office is blamed for the botched “Operation Fast and Furious”, where thousands of high-powered assault rifles were given to criminals.
