WDC files formal request for ethics investigation of Supreme Court justice
This morning the Democracy Campaign filed a formal request with the state Judicial Commission to investigate apparent judicial misconduct by state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman.

Along with the announcement of today’s action, a podcast was posted moments ago with more remarks about the alleged misconduct and WDC’s request for an ethics probe.

The Democracy Campaign is evaluating the possibility of filing a complaint with the state Government Accountability Board, which is responsible for enforcing the state ethics code that public officials in Wisconsin must follow. The Judicial Commission is responsible for enforcement of the judicial ethics code that applies specifically to the state’s judges.
