Associated Press reporter Ryan J. Foley gives a few reasons why Supreme Court justices probably shouldn't be subject to popular elections and then offers Jefferson County Circuit Judge Randy Koschnick's campaign person a free platform to complain that Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson is outraising his candidate by 56 to one:
Lawyers in malpractice case donate to Wis. justice
Here's my question (a two-parter [objection overruled]):
How come this journalist never once mentions the $25K attorneys for Foley & Lardner — the firm opposing Cannon & Dunphy in the lawsuit at issue — have spread around among the Supreme Court justices?
Are they to be measured by a different standard, or what?
What a tremendously biased piece of reporting.
