MADISON – In an unprecedented move, Gov. Walker has appointed current judicial candidate and long-time political ally Rebecca Bradley to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Many have raised concerns about Gov. Walker’s decision given Rebecca Bradley’s close ties to his political campaign and the proximity of the upcoming spring election. In response, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Rather than single-handedly injecting more politics into Wisconsin’s Supreme Court, Gov. Walker should allow voters to elect the next Supreme Court Justice in the non-partisan spring election. It is unprecedented for a Wisconsin Governor of any party to appoint a declared judicial candidate to the Supreme Court this close to an election. This power grab sets a terrible precedent and doesn’t pass the smell test.”

  1. David Ciepluch says:

    There is nothing about Walker and his blatant corruption that passes any smell test. Walker and his cronies along with the Kochs casts a toxic pall and stench across Wisconsin. It can be measured in being the number one state in the nation in lost family income, and people leaving the state, and last in business start ups.
