MADISON, Wis. — As Michael Screnock has spent substantial time making unseemly homophobic innuendos about his state Supreme Court opponent having traveled to “San Francisco,” One Wisconsin Now Research Director Joanna Beilman-Dulin offered the following statements about Screnock’s “values.”

“Michael Screnock was arrested for physically preventing women accessing abortion clinics. Twice.

“Women who remember those days will tell you with horror how men like Screnock would show up to clinics, scream at them and block them from being able to get to their health care provider. Screnock continues to say he has never regretted his participation in blocking clinics.

“Media from the time noted that Screnock’s group modeled itself after Operation Rescue. Operation Rescue’s motto was ‘If you believe abortion is murder, then act like it’s murder.’ We deserve to know if Screnock plans to treat abortion as a crime like murder if he is elected to the state’s highest court.”

    Haha so hilarious… Dallett just plain ‘got caught,’ saying things at that fundraiser she NEVER thought would be heard back in Wisconsin, to open up the purse strings of her hard-left money raising base that likes a little red meat with their tofu and soy. Sorry, Rebecca, I don’t think Wisconsinities would care for the streets of San Francisco, if you’ve been there, which I have a number of times…

  2. Terry says:

    Screnock is just another Big Government Nanny State Control Freak Republican bully backed by the bloody NRA and greasy Dark Money from out of state billionaires. He has received unGodly amounts of Dark Money already. Screnock wants to lord over people’s lives and bodies. He was already arrested twice for blocking women trying to enter health clinics! Wisconsin doesn’t need another bought and paid for Trump Toady republican!

    Vote Dallet!

    PS
    San Francisco is a truly thriving, stunningly beautiful, economic powerhouse and world class city. Keep innovating and leading thevway San Francisco!

  3. Terry says:

    @GPS,
    Yes! Beats having all the people overdose in Wisconsin on opiates or having all the drunkards in Wisconsin stumbling, puking and pissing all over themselves (aka “business as usual”) in Wisconsin.

    No more greasy Dark Money republicans!

    Vote Dallet April 3rd!

  4. Tom says:

    Screnock is just another far right wing Trump loving republican extemist hired by the Koch brothers to run Wisconsin, just like they did with Walker. His attacks on San Francisco are just stupid. Like Terry said, San Francisco is a thriving, cosmopolitan economic powerhouse! The city is overflowing with awesome great paying jobs and success stories. San Francisco has minted more millionaires than anywhere on earth and created hundreds if not thousands of incredible new businesses creating millions of new great high quality jobs for literally millions of people in the process! Real estate values in the city just go up up up, the city has so many entrepreneurs and new business start ups, it’s tolerant and inclusive of all different types of people and the city has innovated on a level never seen anywhere in the history of western civilization.
    Yeah why would Wisconsin want any of that?

    Screnock is an idiot
    Vote Dallet!

  5. Larry says:

    The amount of street crime and disorder in San Francisco is shocking. Like WashCoRepub said, If you’ve ever visited there recently, you know that some of the streets are virtually unpassable due to the homelessness, drugs and public urination/defecation. Add to that the soaring rate of vehicle break-ins, and you’ve got an area that Dallett is understandably not wanting to be associated with.

    But hey, if those are ‘your values,’ Wisconsin, then you’ve got a friend in Rebecca Dallet.

  6. Terry says:

    Attacking success and prosperity is the Wisconsin republican’s way.

  7. PMD says:

    Stay in the suburbs guys. What is this the 1970s? We’re fearmongering and positioning urban areas as dangerous for nice white people? Is that a Wisconsin value? And you can be sure that if Dallet had been arrested at any point in her life the GOP would not let you forget it for a second.

  8. Terry says:

    @Larry, nice try but you FAIL. There’s more violent crime in Milwaukee than in San Francisco and the opioid crisis is ravaging Wisconsin and red states far, far worse than blue states thanks to blue states having functioning health care systems and legal cannabis programs unlike Walker’s Wississippi. Sure all the rampant alcoholism, opiate overdoses and meth addicts in Wisconsin are hidden away in the suburbs and trailerparks but it’s still there and just as real. Your anecdotal, xenophobic “opinion” as a pasty doughboy tourist from Wisconsin visiting San Francisco does not constitute reality and it belies the truly world class greatness and perenial economic success and urban vitality of truly thriving cities like San Francisco. Niice try though. Try again.

    Now back to the real matter at hand. Screnock is a big fat bought and paid for puppet for big money corporate special interest groups. That is a FACT! Here you go y’all..

    Dump Screnock
    Vote Dallet!

  9. GPS says:

    PMD, after 45 years of living in the city of Milwaukee, I will gladly stay in the suburbs.
    Terry, here is as another San Francisco “value.” The article is from 2016, but I’m sure its all better now. BTW I was in in SF for some of 2013. Take it from me, its a cesspool.

  10. Terry says:

    @GPS, WRONG. Look up the crime stats holmes.Milwaukee is more violent. Talking down San Francisco will not change reality. Best coast born and bred, believe me Milwaukee is not even in the same league as San Francisco. Not even the same sport. World class vs Midworst.

    Vote Dallet April 3!

  11. Tom says:

    @GPS, sounds like any old day in northern wisconsin, with all the chronic drunks pissing themselves, and the meth addicts and the poor alcoholic trailer trash everywhere. Except in Wisconsin they fly confederate flags now. Give me a successful thriving progressive city like SF anyday, especially with great jobs and legal weed lounges

  12. Jake formerly of the LP says:

    You know what Michael Screnock’s values are? Whoever will “value” his hackery the most. At this point, the guy has completely outsourced his campaign to WMC, the NRA, the Wisconsin GOP, and the fundie groups. His own campaign is broke and he is hiding from anywhere outside of right-wing Bubble Land.

    If your values in justice are fairness and competence, you have to choose Dallet.
