GAB should change judicial campaigns

Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Waunakee) in The Monroe Times
Judges have no constituency; they write no bills and vote on no laws. Since judges do not participate in legislative decisions, there is the clear ability for illegal money to be banned completely, right now. Since it is illegal to lobby a judge, there is no need for any group to advocate to the public to lobby a judge. In fact, ex-parte communication with a judge is strictly prohibited by state rules, so calling a judge, to tell them they are a scum bag, is illegal.
