The Milwaukee County GOP deleted a tweet back in September, 2018, that mocks U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by suggesting President Abraham Lincoln groped her.
The tweet featured a meme that’s made the rounds on social media during the ongoing debate over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It showed a picture of the 85-year-old Ginsburg and says, “Abraham Lincoln grabbed my ass in 1862.” It was posted on a Monday but was deleted the next day.
The chair of the Milwaukee group is Sam Hagedorn, the son of Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn. Brian Hagedorn, who was former Gov. Scott Walker’s “legal advisor” is running on April 2 against Justice Lisa Neubauer for the Supreme Court seat being vacated by Shirley Abrahamson.
