Sen. Ron Johnson Should Denounce Justice Rebecca Bradley’s Comments
Voters deserve to know if Sen. Johnson thinks Justice Bradley can be a fair and impartial justice on the high court.
MADISON – It’s been three days since the disgusting, hateful, and divisive articles written by Justice Rebecca Bradley were revealed. In that time, we’ve learned that Justice Bradley also wrote articles comparing abortion to the holocaust and suggesting that women play a role in date rape. While the embattled Supreme Court Justice desperately tries to spin her way out of trouble, Sen. Ron Johnson remains completely silent on one of the biggest controversies of the year in Wisconsin politics.
Sen. Johnson has been extremely vocal about his party’s presidential primary contest, even comparing his own campaign for Senate to that of Donald Trump‘s. Now that Wisconsin seems to have its own Trump in the form of a sitting Supreme Court Justice, voters deserve to know if Sen. Johnson thinks Justice Bradley can be a fair and impartial justice on the high court.
“We know Senator Ron Johnson thinks doing nothing is his job, but it is unacceptable for him to stay silent on Justice Bradley’s deplorable opinion columns,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Kory Kozloski said on Wednesday. “Gov. Walker called Sen. Johnson Wisconsin’s “voice in the Senate” this week. As a standard-bearer for his party, Johnson has a responsibility to speak out on this issue. Democrat or Republican, this sort of rhetoric is completely unacceptable for a justice on the high court and Ron Johnson should denounce it immediately.”
