MADISON, WI - Over the past two weeks, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley has refused to apologize for previous statements she made arguing that women “play a role in date rape.” Gov. Scott Walker, who appointed Bradley to the position, has defended the embattled Justice while also dodging questions about his vetting process.

jennifer-shilling"Judges are supposed to stand up and protect victims, not shame them," said Sen. Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse). "Justice Bradley's statement reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of our criminal justice system and a lack of respect for women. If she is unable or unwilling to respect the rights of women and prosecute criminals to the fullest extent under the law, she is unfit to serve on our state's highest court."

scott-walkerWhile studying at Marquette University, Rebecca Bradley argued that it was "legitimate" to believe that "women play a role in date rape." Despite attempts to walk back other previous statements, Justice Bradley has refused to disavow her comments blaming victims of rape. Justice Bradley has stood by her previous statements equating birth control to murder and arguing that pharmacists should deny contraceptive coverage to women who have a prescription.

"Gov. Walker clearly didn't do his homework before appointing Justice Bradley to the bench," added Shilling. "The statements made by Justice Bradley represent a horrible, misinformed and completely irresponsible view of the challenges facing women in our state. She owes families an apology."

MIDDLETON – President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Russ’s bid for the U.S. Senate Friday. Citing Russ’s commitment to fighting for middle class and working families, President Obama and Vice President Biden announced their support for Russ.

"Russ Feingold is a proven champion for middle class families,” said President Obama. “He listens to the people of Wisconsin, and he's always led their fight for good-paying jobs, affordable college education, and a secure retirement. Russ is an honest, independent-minded public servant who's not driven by what's politically expedient; he's driven by what he knows is right for the people of Wisconsin. I'm proud to endorse him in his campaign for United States Senate," said Obama.

"Russ Feingold is a friend and a tireless advocate for the working families of Wisconsin,” said Vice President Biden. “We've fought together to grow our economy, raise wages for American workers, protect Social Security and clean up our campaign finance system. I'm happy to support his campaign for United States Senate, because I know the good work he'll continue to do for Wisconsin and our nation," said Biden.

“I’m proud to have the support of President Obama and Vice President Biden,” said Russ. “I’ve worked with both of them and share their commitment to our middle class and working families. In the past seven years, their leadership has guided us to a stronger economy, and I look forward to building on that progress by fighting to create even more opportunities for Wisconsin families.”

Rebecca BradleyJustice Bradley's vague explanations of her disgusting and hateful remarks in columns for the Marquette Tribune haven't passed the smell test so far. She owes Wisconsin more than a hollow apology, she owes us all an explanation of where she stands today.
