Legal complaint filed against Dallet, loses key endorsements
[Madison, WI] — Rebecca Dallet, candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, will say anything to get elected. First, Dallet was caught by the Wisconsin State Journal making false claims over when she removed herself from cases, now Dallet is facing new criticism over her recusal policy (or lack thereof) – with the Republican Party of Wisconsin filing a complaint outlining how Dallet took money from attorneys within days of hearing their cases on the bench. If that wasn’t bad enough, Dallet lost a key endorsement in the race on Friday.
Check out Dallet’s hypocrisy problem in the news:
From WisPolitics: The state GOP has filed a complaint with the Judicial Commission accusing Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet of using her Milwaukee County courtroom to raise campaign donations from attorneys with cases before her.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:State Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet has lost a key endorsement after criticizing the operation of the high court under the leadership of Chief Justice Patience Roggensack. Roggensack’s daughter, Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Ellen Brostrom, had supported Dallet, who is also a Milwaukee County judge, during the three-way primary contest for an opening on the Supreme Court. Brostrom is a close personal friend of Dallet’s.
From the Wisconsin State Journal: The complaint focuses on campaign donations from 39 attorneys who have contributed a combined $21,100 to her Supreme Court campaign, according to records compiled by the party.
From RightWisconsin: However, the Republican complaint points out one case, Paul Minnic v. Florsheim Investments LLC, where Dallet received donations from the defendant, the defendant’s lawyer, and three of the plaintiff’s attorneys. “Two of the donations made by the plaintiff’s attorneys directly coincided with their entrance into the case,” the complaint said.
