Glenn Grothman: wrong on campaign finance reform.

Hi everyone,

Long time between Glenn entries, but I was at a conference and then getting the semester ready... all for 5% less than last year. Hm..

Ah, Glenn. He doesn't think there's a problem with how we elect judges. He does, of course, whenever a judge he doesn't like gets elected... but lately, it's mainly been happy time for Glenn.

In the meantime, from the Superior Telegram: Campaign finance reform needed, but will it happen?

Then there was Sen. Glen Grothman, R-West Bend, who claimed none of his constituents thought the high court was corrupt and asked for examples. It was like he was calling Kreitlow’s concerns blasphemy, even treason!

That was the first moment I realized Grothman has such high self-regard that he actually thinks we will believe the nonsense he spouts. I was wondering who paid Grothman to speak in favor of the status quo.

Kreitlow’s response was sublime: He evenly mentioned that in many cases justices have been asked to recuse themselves because of campaign contributions from parties involved in a case coming before the court.

I know of more than a few of his constituents who believe there's a problem.... but apparently none of them are constituents who matter to him.
