The Separation of Powers is central to our republic. The legislature makes the law. Our judges enforce it.
But here in Wisconsin, we have seen a concerted effort to undermine the Separation of Powers. Time after time, our state court judges have blocked legitimate acts of the Wisconsin Legislature.
Ozaukee County Judge Tom Wolfgram crossed the line into politics and publicly supported the effort to recall Governor Scott Walker.
Judge Wolfgram now claims in the liberal Ozaukee Press that publicly supporting the recall was nothing “political.”
Judge Wolfgram’s claim that the recall was not political is “not just hogwash, it’s transparently misleading hogwash. Petitions in any instance are political acts intended to force a question of some sort on a larger scale. In this case, it’s even more explicitly political, as the petitions want to use the political process to negate an election,” as one writer notes.
I am challenging Judge Wolfgram in the April 2nd Election.
