Ex-Wisconsin Supreme Court justices blast GOP impeachment push

Louis ButlerTwo former Wisconsin Supreme Court justices — one appointed by a Democratic governor and one appointed by a Republican — rebuked a push by Republicans to consider impeaching a newly elected liberal justice on the state’s high court.

Former Supreme Court Justices Louis Butler and Janine Geske argued in a column published in the Wisconsin State Journal Thursday that a move by Republicans in the state Legislature to potentially hold impeachment proceedings on liberal Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz would “not only be inappropriate, but unconstitutional.”

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) and other Republicans in the Badger State are considering impeaching Protasiewicz after the state Supreme Court was asked to consider two redistricting cases over the state’s legislative maps.

Republicans point to her comments when she was running for a vacant seat on the state Supreme Court earlier this year in which she called the state’s maps “rigged” as well as her receiving nearly $10 million from the state Democratic Party.
