Conservative Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn

Postby Henry Vilas » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:16 am

The conservative-backed candidate running for Wisconsin Supreme Court kept a personal blog more than a decade ago in which he opined on hot-button issues of the day, including that he thought a U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down a Texas anti-sodomy law could lead to the legalization of bestiality.

Cultural warrior running for state supreme court.


Sounds like the sentiments expressed by former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

He's repulsive. I really hope the majority of voters agree.

so is he a conservative in the separation of powers sense, or is he a right-wing social engineer inclined to legislate from the bench?

Conservatives only brand liberals as activist judges.

there is, of course, loads of right-wing judicial activism -- newt gingrich famously said so some time ago . . . for example, i would imagine that anything and everything proposed to bedevil our transgender/questioning/intersex fellow citizens is legislating from the bench . . .
