Hey, Look! An Acorn

The Gazette finds the nut of truth behind so much of the advertising for Supreme Court candidates. The job isn't about putting criminals behind bars.

Let me repeat that. The Supreme Court of the State of Wisconsin is not tasked with putting criminals behind bars.

We are being lied to, folks. We are being lied to by groups who want to make us believe that "being tough on crime" is somehow a duty of a Supreme Court justice. It is a duty of a justice to understand the law and to show some modicum of integrity. That's why I'll be voting for Louis Butler on April 1.

I have known Justice Butler for almost all of the 18 years I've been on the bench here in Evansville, and I am proud to be one of his supporters for re-election. He has the knowledge and temperment to continue being the fine justice that he is.

The fact that his opponent continues to allow an attack ad, that he knows is false, to remain on the air is indicative of THAT person's character--which is the type we do NOT need on our state's high court.

Again, I am proud to support the re-election of Justice Louis Butler to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Judge Tom, Evanvsville.
