Wisconsin’s “paper of record” reported today on a negative claim made in a series of letters sent out by the Michael Gableman campaign that are not factual. Gableman’s campaign said that in State v. Brown, a case heard by the State Supreme Court, a sexual predator was set free. Although it has been repeated in letters from Gableman’s campaign, it is a completely false statement.
The Wisconsin State Journal article reports, “Brown never was released and remains at the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center in Mauston, according to Department of Corrections records.”
Michael Gableman’s campaign should have checked its facts. Instead, the campaign has sent out the same misleading and false information repeatedly. Either Gableman’s campaign ignored the facts, or failed to check them out. Either is unacceptable. The standards for a member of our judiciary should be higher.
