We need to dig deeper into the topic we discussed yesterday; the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Governor’s statewide mask mandate. We mentioned the lack of a pandemic response could cost the state $50 million a month in federal food stamp assistance. There is another money trail that needs to be followed, and that involves the private citizen who brought the lawsuit challenging the Governor’s mask order. His name is Jere Fabick, a very wealthy man who has been generous to Republican causes. He has given more than $350,000 in political donations to Republican or conservative candidates. That includes a $20,000 donation to Rebecca Bradley, a justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. That is well within Fabick’s rights. He can spend his money however he wants. But this is the same court that ruled the Governor’s mask order unlawful. And yes, Justice Bradley was among those hearing the case. Want to guess which way she voted? Follow the money. Bradley sided with the majority. This is why Wisconsin needs stronger recusal laws for Supreme Court justices. She should not have been allowed to hear the case. Or should have had the sense to avoid a conflict of interest. How can a justice take all that money and then be objective? Even if this wasn’t about the money, it sure looks like it could have been. And Wisconsin Supreme Court justices should not put themselves in that position.
