Marquette University Law School Ed Fallone, a candidate for the Wisconsin State Supreme Court

 

The heated nature of the charges flying back and forth between current Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly, who was appointed to the bench by former Gov. Scott Walker, and Jill Karofsky, a Dane County Judge who hopes to be one of the top two vote getters in the upcoming Feb. 18 nonpartisan (wink-wink) primary, has not cooled off.

 If anything, it has gotten hotter as Karofsky continues to say that Kelly, a conservative being backed by the Republican Party, has consistently ruled in favor of special interest groups. The judge made similar charges about Kelly during her presentation to the Green Lake Dems & Friends in early January.

Kelly, according to an article on the Wisconsin Public Radio website, called Karofsky’s comments “a disgusting slander.” All this took place at a Milwaukee Bar Association debate earlier this week.

So where does the third candidate in the race stand? Ask him tomorrow morning when Fallone, a Marquette Law School Professor, is one of the main speakers at the Feb. 1 meeting of the Green Lake County Dems & Friends at the Caestecker Public Library, starting at 10 a.m. The meeting is open to the public.
