Capitol Notes: Timing Of Brad Schimel's Judgeship Appointment Raises Questions For Some

Nov 26, 2018

Last week saw more fallout from the Nov. 6 election.  Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel decided not to seek a recount in the race that he narrowly lost, to Democratic challenger Josh Kaul.  The next day, outgoing Gov. Scott Walker appointed Schimel to the post of Waukesha County Circuit Judge.  Some legislative Democrats decried the move, calling it "backscratching."

In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com, what he thought of the optics surrounding the appointment.
