People in Wisconsin “feel” like the Wisconsin Supreme Court is “corrupt,” Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky said.
Karofsky, the liberal candidate challenging conservative Justice Daniel Kelly, appeared Sunday on the “UpFront” program, produced in partnership with WisPolitics.com.
“People in Wisconsin feel like it’s corrupt. Because what they see are justices on the Supreme Court who make decisions before anyone ever gets to the state Supreme Court chamber, justices who do not follow the rule of law, justices who are acting like politicians, and that feels like corruption to people,” Karofsky said.
Kelly’s record, Karofsky said, makes it “difficult to reach a conclusion other than he is acting in a way that makes people feel like there is corruption on the Supreme Court.”
Karofsky said the people who are supporting Kelly “want to make sure that he stays on the court, because they know he will rule for them, no matter what.”
Karofsky and Kelly will face off in the April 7 election for a 10-year term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Kelly will appear on “UpFront” March 8.
Also on the program, Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin discussed changes he has made since polling by him, and many others, in the 2016 cycle failed to see the election of President Trump coming.
Milwaukee security consultant Mike Cummings also discussed a growing trend in workplace violence, and what companies and employees can do to protect themselves.
