MADISON, Wis. — Former Scott Walker attorney Michael Screnock has taken an unprecedented 38 percent of his campaign money from the Republican Party for his race for a seat on the non-partisan Wisconsin Supreme Court. The $345,031 in Republican Party money is five times more than any Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate has ever taken from a political party.

His opponent in the race, Judge Rebecca Dallet has taken $0 from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

“Michael Screnock is bought and paid for by the Republican Party in a way no other candidate has in the history of the state,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. “Scott Walker has created a constitutional crisis by canceling elections and if Michael Screnock is on the Supreme Court he will be a rubber stamp for Walker’s total lawlessness.”

“Michael Screnock is an extremist who was arrested twice for physically blocking women at abortion clinics, who has pledged loyalty to the NRA over the safety of our children and who is making homophobic attacks on his opponent,” said Ross. “Just when you think Trump has bottomed things out for the Republican Party, Mike Screnock comes along with his shovel to dig deeper.”

Screnock is benefitting from $1.5 million in spending from the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and Screnock was endorsed by the National Rifle Association within hours of the Parkland, Florida shooting that has prompted protests against the NRA across Wisconsin and the country.

“Michael Screnock was Scott Walker’s lawyer and he has said if elected he will not step away from cases involving Scott Walker, the Republican Party, nor any other entity supporting his campaign,” said Ross. “The Republican Party is trying to put a Michael Screnock-sized weight on the scales of justice in Scott Walker’s favor.”

    Screnock is just another a bought and paid for republican hack, just like career politician Scott Walker. They will do whatever their corporate masters or the NRA or any other special interest groups they take money from tell them to do and even worse, Screnock will not promise to remove himself from cases that involve the same people or corporations that have given him millions? Gee I wonder which way he would rule??

    The only solution is to…

    The Blue Wave is coming Wisconsin!!!

    I guess that’s why Dallett feels she has to raise money in San Francisco from the hard-left wing of the Democratic party! Remember, folks, like Rebecca said (when she didn’t think anyone from Wisconsin was listening), “San Francisco values are Wisconsin values!”

  3. Tom says:

    Vote Dallet 2018!
    No more corporate owned big fat republicans in Wisconsin PLEASE!
