She's Baaaaaack!

By Jeff Simpson

For those paying attention during Scott Walker's first two elections, remember that Diane Hendricks was his top campaign donor.  She has "donated"  well over half a million dollars to the Walker campaign,  and all she wants in return is to destroy the middle class in WI

Well, she is back and back with a vengeance!  Not content in just owning the Governor's office, now she also wants the Supreme Court.  It seems as though her Easter gift to herself will be owning Pat Roggensack

Now, another member of the court’s 4-3 right-wing majority, Justice Patience “Pat” Roggensack, is up for re-election. Roggensack is being aided by the same outside groups that aided Walker in advancing some of his most controversial proposals. The far-right independent expenditure group Wisconsin Club for Growth spent an eye-popping $300,000 on television ads supporting Roggensack during the primary. Club for Growth was responsible for more than 75% of the nearly $400,000 in TV spending in the primary race, and more than 80% of the total ad spots, according to TNS Media Intelligence/CMAG estimates released by the Brennan Center for Justice and Justice at Stake.

In addition, Roggensack is being handed big checks by some of the same wealthy donors that gave to Governor Walker in his recall campaign, such as Beloit billionaire Diane Hendricks and David Uihlein, Jr., as well as a variety of PACs and local Republican Party chapters.

Her opponent, Marquette Law Professor Edward Fallone, has been endorsed by a host of progressive organizations, but lags well behind in fundraising. If Fallone took the majority the court could do a virtual 180 on some of the state’s most contentious issues

I wonder if she remembers any of these ads? We do know that she is NOT a conservative

Let us stop letting these billionaires run own OUR politicians! VOTE ED FALLONE April 2nd!

  1. Nice picture; however, it looks to me more like former Rep Litjens is the beneficiary of the Governor's affection. Now that would explain the fall out between Speaker Vos and the Governor.
    Oh what tangled webs we weave.
