MADISON – Contests to elect justices to the Supreme Court of Wisconsin are non-partisan elections. Despite this, three-time appointee of Gov. Scott Walker, Justice Rebecca Bradley, continues to reveal how intimately involved she is with the Republican Party of Wisconsin and has no interest in staying impartial.

Justice Bradley’s deep ties to fellow Michael Grebe protege, Scott Walker, and other elements of the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party are well documented. Bradley, a candidate supported by the Wisconsin Club For Growth, hasn’t been shy about her connections to the Republican Party in Wisconsin, even allowing the party to place automated phone calls on behalf of her Supreme Court campaign.

Shot: During her entire campaign Justice Bradley has claimed she is an impartial justice.

Chaser: Even after attending official GOP events and coordinating with the Republican state party, Bradley couldn’t pass up an opportunity to rub elbows with lobbyists who spent an estimated $5.6 million to help elect conservative justices between 2007 and 2013.

With one month until voters go to the polls to select a fair and impartial justice, we need to call a spade a spade. It’s time to acknowledge Justice Rebecca Bradley’s close and personal involvement with the Republican Party of Wisconsin and her intimate entanglements with many other elements of extreme right-wing infrastructure in the state.
