State Supreme Court Justice Refuse to Remove Herself from Case She Campaigned On

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz who spoke out against the state's redistricting plan will now rule on its legality.

The justice's refusal to remove herself from the case is drawing concern over bias in the state's highest court.

"Democrats succeeded in electing Protasiewicz, who is a hardline partisan Democrat, to Wisconsin’s highest court on Apr. 4, 2023. She was sworn in on August 1," Breitbart News reported.

"Previously the court had three staunch conservatives, three staunch liberals, and one Republican who frequently votes with the conservative bloc but occasionally votes with the Left. Protasiewicz replaced one of the conservatives," it added.

The concern over her involvement in the case adds to questions about her election finances earlier this year.

"In the most expensive state judicial race in U.S. history, Janet C. Protasiewicz, a liberal, defeated conservative attorney Dan Kelly in April for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court," the Epoch Times reported.

"The record $23 million raised by or on behalf of the Janet for Justice campaign prompted a group of citizen investigators in Wisconsin to look into where all of the money had come from," it continued.

The investigation also claimed that at least six donors to her election campaign exceeded the state's limit of $20,000 for individuals, including one donor listed from California.

The multiple red flags are further complicated by her involvement in the case that could determine the congressional map used for the next decade in the state.

The corruption allegations continue to grow, with the latest case showing evidence of what is at stake in the current situation.
