Wow, it smells like sour grapes in here.
Ziegler admitted on Wednesday afternoon to a violation of the law, paid a $5,000 forfeiture and will pay the board costs for the prosecution, which will likely total about $12,000, attorney Jonathan Becker said in a news release.
Last week, the state Supreme Court ruled it won't dismiss the complaint against Ziegler that the board filed.
The deal won't stop an ongoing investigation by the state Judicial Commission into possible indiscretions. The panel is looking into those cases and others that Ziegler heard involving companies in which she owns at least $50,000 in stock. The investigation could lead to her being kicked off the court, WISC-TV reported.

Considering it's a 10 year term, the "no judicial experience" argument would be voided and Wisconsin has rarely voted out a sitting Supreme Court Justice.
