Glenn Grothman: wrong on campaign finance reform

Hi everyone,

A bill that would diminish the financial power of corporations to elect Supreme Court Justices sounds like it might be a good idea, but not to Glenn.

Bill could add finance funds for justice elections

There is opposition to the bill, with some believing that with the current economic and budget problems the state is facing, no money will be left for financing campaigns, according to Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend.

"Our state is so broke that the idea that the taxpayers can handle the burden to pay for state Supreme Court candidates at this time is completely inappropriate,” Grothman said.

Thank heavens the corporate interests in the state can afford to drop millions getting their candidates elected. So long as corporations are happy, why should any of us worry whether they've paid for Supreme Court Justices? I mean, what could go wrong?
