Former Governor Scott Walker (R-I take care of my donors) who lost his own bid for re-election in 2018 just keeps on losing. 3 of his hand picked judicial candidates lost in last weeks election in Wisconsin. The ballots were counted today because a court order delaying the vote count was still in effect.
Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judges Paul Dedinsky and Dan Gabler were both defeated in their elections and State Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly lost his election to Jill Karofsky. All 3 were Walker appointees to the courts.
Risking their lives to vote in person and by absentee (breaking self-isolation to get a witness signature), Wisconsin has once again showed that there are consequences to screwing around with peoples votes. Even with less than 1% of the polls open statewide due to the pandemic, people made a huge effort to show up.
This has made my heart very happy. Schadenfreuden is sweet.
More in November, please.
Update: And now it’s official!
