After dropping slime, WMC now running and hiding on eve of election

As tomorrow's Supreme Court election looms, Rebecca Dallet's campaign is showing how you respond to slime attempts by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce - by taking them head-on. In response to a sleazy ad that WMC has run trying to imply Dallet is "soft on crime" (which doesn't mean a damn thing on the Supreme Court anyway, since they don't do sentencing), here's the prosecutor of that case calling out those corporate scumbags, and saying that Dallet acted properly in following his advice for a relatively short sentence.

It's also great to hear both him and Dallet say the word "LYING", and calling out Michael Screnock for not condemning the false ad.


So what is WMC doing after being called out for their sleaze? HIDING THEIR MEMBERS FROM THE PUBLIC.

Sure enough, you type up that website and it comes up "Page Not Found."

Golly, I imagine WMC would really hate it if someone had printed that information off in a blog and could go back to it and print up another List of Shame. You know, one that might look like this.

Stick it to the real takers in this state - the unethical lowlifes of WMC. Vote in Dallet tomorrow

  1. I heard that spot on the radio going home last night and pumped my fist in the air. Finally a Democrat fighting back effectively. I guess we'll see soon enough if it was actually effective.

    I hung my sample ballot up on the wall outside my cube to let people know it's election day - no indication of my preference of course - just a simple non-partisan GOTV effort.

    Honestly, Dallet is an easy choice on experience alone. The Republican has been a judge for three years in sparsely populated Sauk County. Dallet has been in Milwaukee County for ten and was a prosecutor before that.

    Add in the fact that the Republican owes his post to the sitting Governor, worked for Michael Best and Friedrich and is primarily funded by the Republican Party, and I think it's fair to suggest we know where his bread is buttered.

    Dallet wins easily on experience and perceived independence.

  2. Oh, if this election was based on qualifications and ethical behavior, Dallet wins hands down.

    It's only because of dirty WMC/NRA money, fundies who are single-minded on taking away reproductive rights, and scared old white people addicted to GOPperganda radio that makes this a contested race. We'll see what wins out.

    But yes, I also found it heartening to see Dallet take the fight right to these corporate scumbags, and turn the spotlight onto them. More Dems should do the same

  3. Apparently the Dallet response ad hurt WMCs fee-fees, so they filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Judicial Commission saying that Dallet was smearing them.

    Yes, the corporate oligarchs who ran a dishonest ad that basically revealed the name of a child who was molested.... those guys are the REAL victims.

    Just when you think WMC can't get lower and more gutless, they surprise you.

    1. That should be shocking. Sadly, it's exactly what I'd expect from that crowd. I hope the judicial commission spanks them and makes them sit in the corner. Metaphorically of course.
