Wisconsin's Republican lawmakers wrote to their Democratic governor on Tuesday to demand that the state bans employees from TikTok to protect from the risk of Chinese spyware.

They urged Gov. Tony Evers to lead by example and delete the app from his own phone.

The Beijing-based owners of the app are already locked in dispute with the federal government over how it uses and stores user data, amid concerns that it could be deployed in influence operations. 

'We write to urge you to ban TikTok from Wisconsin government devices and to lead by example and delete TikTok from your own devices. TikTok is nefarious Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spyware that surveils American citizens, promotes CCP propaganda, and allows the CCP to censor and control Americans' news and content,' says the letter, signed by U.S. Reps. Mike Gallagher, Tom Tiffany, Glenn Grothman, Bryan Steil and Scott Fitzgerald, as well as U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson.
