Activist Judge Neubauer Joins Liberal Allies In Blatant Display of Partisanship
February 27, 2019
[Madison, WI] – It’s no secret that liberal special interests and far left-wing groups are backing Judge Lisa Neubauer’s campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court. These groups see Neubauer as an ally who will support and help push through their radical left agenda. Nevertheless, Neubauer has continued to lie to voters — claiming to be nonpartisan and impartial while rejecting the notion that she’s the liberal candidate in the race. But now it’s been discovered that Neubauer recently marched alongside her liberal allies during an anti-Trump protest rally. Despite her claims to the contrary, her participation in the protest confirms her hyper-partisan leanings and desire to politicize the Court.

Supreme Court candidate Lisa Neubauer attended anti-Trump, climate change march in 2017
February 27, 2019
Everybody knows which candidate Democrats and Republicans are lining up behind in the officially nonpartisan Supreme Court race.
But did appeals court Judge Lisa Neubauer, the darling of Democrats, go too far politically by attending a climate change march protesting the environmental agenda of President Donald Trump?
Neubauer’s daughter Greta, now a Democratic legislator from Racine, posted a Facebook picture of her with her mother at the Madison Climate March in April 2017. Organizers said it was a sister protest to the People’s Climate March in D.C.
“A mom and a daughter and a big, bad MARCH,” Greta wrote on her Facebook page, adding #YouthRiseUp #PeoplesClimateMarch. More than 140 people gave the photo a thumbs up.
Stephan Thompson, a campaign aide to appeals court Judge Brian Hagedorn, criticized Neubauer for attending the rally. Hagedorn, a favorite of Republicans, faces off against Neubauer in April.
“Lisa Neubauer joining left-wing protests tells voters everything they need to know about her desire to politicize the Supreme Court,” Thompson said. “Judge Hagedorn knows his job is to say what the law is, not what he thinks the law should be.”
Neubauer’s campaign initially pushed back against the suggestion that the march could be dubbed as a protest of the first-term Republican president.
But check the record:
In the wake of the successful Women’s March on Washington, the Sierra Club and more than 20 other liberal organizations announced they would hold the People’s Climate March in Washington, D.C., and hundreds of other communities nationwide.
A news release announcing the event said the march was being held “in response to widespread outrage against President Trump’s disastrous anti-climate agenda.” It then mentioned his executive orders advancing the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines.
The website for the Madison rally said Wisconsin residents are under attack from “the current state and federal administrations,” an apparent reference to the Republican control of the capitols in Madison and Washington.
Asked if Neubauer should have attended the event and whether she would have to recuse herself on climate change and Trump-related cases if elected to the Supreme Court, her campaign chose to attack Hagedorn.
Rick Esenberg, head of the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, pointed to a state rule that says judicial candidates should “not appeal to partisanship and shall avoid partisan activity in the spirit of a nonpartisan judiciary.
