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.
