Conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Michael Screnock told voters that his "candidacy is an act of service to the state."
"My candidacy is premised on the Rule of Law," Screnock told News/Talk 1130 WISN's Dan O'Donnell Tuesday morning, adding that he did not believe his liberal opponent, Rebecca Dallet, "is too concerned with the Rule of Law."
Dallet told Wisconsin Public Radio early in the campaign that she saw it as her duty to "advocate for policy positions that need to be changed" that she determines to be important. Judge Screnock blasted that notion.
"There is absolutely not a judge in this land who is committed to the Rule of Law who would ever utter those words," he said. "That is the desire of an activist judge who sees their rule to bend and shape the Constitution and the law to fit their political agenda. And she has said consistently over the past week that she believes in a living Constitution; that the Constitution needs to expand and shift and bend to fit the needs of society today as judges view it.
"I absolutely disagree. The Constitution must be interpreted as it was originally written otherwise we have judges amending the Constitution on the fly to fit their political goals. That's what this race is all about."
