Robin Vos appropriates the word "integrity," costing his statement its integrity

I don't have a strong opinion about Robin Vos's highway naming bill which NBC15 in Madison says Gov. Evers has vetoed.
Vos accuses Evers of playing partisan games with bipartisan bill
Basically, I don't know anything about it other than what's in the story.

And I can even live with the power-grabbing, lame-duck legislating, election-nullifying GOP Assembly speaker

accusing Evers of partisan game-playing at the expense of the people. That's Wisconsin Politics 101, though his Public Pity Pot Performance is definitely Pathetic.

But what I can't abide is his appropriation of the word "integrity" for an on-the-record statement.
“This bipartisan bill was intended to preserve the integrity of the tradition of honoring worthy individuals in our state and was widely supported in both chambers,” said Vos after the bill was vetoed. “It’s unfortunate that Gov. Evers chose to play partisan games by vetoing the bill. The governor continues to put politics over people.”
It costs the statement its integrity.
