Judge Janet Protasiewicz was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in a landslide 11-point victory in April. Spurred on by Republican Speaker of the Assembly Robin Vos, some extreme Republican lawmakers in Madison are now threatening to impeach Judge Protasiewicz before she has ruled on a single case. If they are successful, they will sideline Judge Protasiewicz from future cases, and effectively remove her from the bench.
This is not how democracy works in Wisconsin. State Supreme Court justices are chosen by voters, not politicians in Madison. If Republicans follow through with their threats, they will overturn the will of voters, who clearly chose Judge Protasiewicz to represent them on the state’s highest court.
That’s why we need your help. Call your legislator and demand that they respect the will of Wisconsin voters:
