Revolting’ Development for Gableman


Roundly criticized for his Willie Horton-style race-baiting TV spot, Burnett County Judge Mike Gableman got more bad news yesterday.

Dodge County District Attorney Stephen Bauer officially yanked his support for Gableman, citing the ad and calling the ad “revolting.”

According to Bauer: “This is not a factual ad. …This crossed the line. It was revolting, quite frankly. I do think it undermines the entire judicial system.”

Editorial boards have begun weighing in on the ad as well and the news isn’t good for Gableman.
