1. AND

 

it's been reported that Screnock was just endorsed by the NRA the day before Florida.

There's no such thing as non-partisan judges anymore.

2. thee endorsement

 

“It’s important that all pro-Second Amendment voters get to the polls on Feb. 20 and elect Judge Michael Screnock to the state Supreme Court,” Chris W. Cox of the NRA Political Victory Fund said Tuesday, the day before Wednesday’s deadly shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school that left 17 dead.

3. Let me tell you a little bit about Screnock, because I know the family very well.

 

Screnock is a far-right Evangelical Christian in the Jerry Falwell mold, and any suggestion that he would not legislate from the bench, and just "interpret the law as written" is pure hogwash. He would instantly become the most conservative, far right Judge on the court. He and his family LOOOOOOVE Scott Walker 'cuz he's a Christian in their narrow-minded far right political mold. His entire clan-er-family is downright scary. Half of them are overtly racist and the others hide it. There's a TON of mental illness in that family, but none of it is treated unless you count Xanax and "Christian counseling." They're home schooling, gun toting bible banging country folk who don't trust anything or anyone from Madison or Milwaukee, and sure as hell don't think public schools should get a penny of their tax dollars. They love Jesus But hate, HATE gay and brown people. Trans people? They aren't even people. They're big believers in gay conversion therapy. Pray away the gay, folks! I've heard a couple members of that family say they believe AIDS is God's tool for removing homosexuals. In summary, I'd rather have almost anyone in the entire state of Wisconsin on the court than him.

4. Then we'll have to work hard from now until April 3

Screnock got 46% of the vote (91% reporting).

6. Im already seeing hit pieces on Dallet.

One idiot commented that she received 250,000 from public sector unions. I asked which unions and how much did each give. No reply of course.

7. From Wisconsin Democracy Campaign data

Dallet got about $213,000 in the Civil Servant/Public Employee category, from 80 contributions by individuals (not unions). Most of these were from judges, active or retired.
The Labor Unions category shows no contributions.
Lawyers/Law Firms gave $109,000 (average about $250).
