Dan Kelly, the far-right former justice opposing Janet Protasiewicz, has been trying to hide from his record on abortion and other issues. He may not want to tell voters what he believes now, but between 2012 and 2015 he was writing things about how the reason people support abortion rights is “To preserve sexual libertinism.” Instead of being up-front about his views now, he’s attacking Protasiewicz for being honest about her own positions. He’s trying to frame the election as one between “the rule of law” and “the rule of Janet,” arguing that she will be an extremist judge.
But in addition to his enthusiastic endorsements from multiple anti-abortion groups, financial disclosures show that Kelly has spent the past two years since leaving the court doing a lot of work for the Republican Party and for right-wing groups, much of it related to efforts to overturn the 2020 election and lay the groundwork for future election challenges.
One of these people is a professional partisan, and it’s not the one who has spent her career working for the state of Wisconsin.
What’s it going to be, Wisconsin? The guy who would uphold the 174-year-old abortion ban, or the woman who’d restore abortion rights to the state?
