Letter: Vote to restore integrity to Wis. high court

We need a fresh new face with new ideas on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court and not just another rubber stamp for big business and Gov. Scott Walker. Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone will be on the ballot against incumbent Justice Patience Roggensack. According to www.falloneforjustice.com, former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold endorses Fallone saying, "I know Ed Fallone from our work together at Marquette University. I know him to be an independent thinker and tireless advocate for our individual rights and liberties."

Roggensack listed a reserve judge, Joseph Kearney, the dean of Marquette Law School as an endorsement. Even though Kearney made nice comments about her, he said he did not endorse her. According to JSOnline, Kearney said he does not make political endorsements. Is Roggensack telling us the truth about other aspects of her campaign to keep her job? It makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Ed Fallone promises to work on reversing a rule that allows parties to make political contributions to justices while they have pending cases in front of the high court. Justice Roggensack wants the "Roggensack Rule" to stay in place. This rule was written by the Wisconsin Realtors Association and business lobbying group Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce. Whoa! Who's representing whom?

Ed Fallone says we need a court that is open, transparent, and free from the influence of the special interests. Remember, Roggensack sides with big business because she's beholden to them. Ask yourself, whose best interests are you voting for - your own or big business? Today, statewide elections are the most important decisions we will make. Vote for Ed Fallone in the April 2 election.
