The tightly contested Wisconsin Supreme Court race has become the talk of the Pro-Life movement.
Millions of dollars are flooding into the state in a race that could decide the fate of Wisconsin’s trigger law banning many abortions.
And now Wisconsin’s pro-abortion Supreme Court candidate came under fire for the way she treated a man who assaulted a teen.
While abortion is the top issue in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, other issues are rising to the top.
Among them is crime, and the pro-abortion candidate’s pro-crime track record.
No jail time for raping a teen
Though Wisconsin Supreme Court races are officially non-partisan, there is no doubt about the political persuasions of both candidates.
Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly was initially appointed to the court in 2016 by then-Gov. Scott Walker (R).
However the conservative, Pro-Life justice lost his re-election bid in 2020, and is now seeking to return.
Kelly’s left-wing opponent, Milwaukee County Judge Janet Protasiewicz, has boatloads of money for her campaign, much of it from out-of-state Democrats, George Soros, Planned Parenthood, and other pro-abortion front groups.
Protasiewicz has made her pro-abortion stance a cornerstone of her campaign and claims by overturning Roe, the U.S. Supreme Court ignored “the will of the people.”
However, Protasiewicz has come under heavy fire for the light sentences she has issued to some violent offenders.
In September 2020, Kenneth D. Wright, 28, pled guilty to third-degree sexual assault after he kidnapped a 15-year-old, raped her, continued a sexual relationship with her, and eventually got her pregnant.
Punish the baby not the rapist
At his sentencing, Wright expressed no remorse and even blamed the victim and her parents for the assaults.
Despite the brutal and grotesque details of the crime and Wright’s complete lack of contrition, Protasiewicz gave him no jail time.
In her worldview, children of rape are to be killed, while the rapists are allowed to roam free to rape again.
And that light sentence had deadly consequences.
Less than a year later, Wright was driving under the influence at speeds of over 80-mph in a 30-mph zone and crashed his vehicle.
Wright’s passenger, Jamera Doyle, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
The convicted rapist later pled guilty to reckless homicide.
A pattern of coddling sexual predators
Wright is not the only sexual predator Protasiewicz treated lightly from the bench.
In late 2017, Jovian Reese raped his cousin after she fell asleep while at his home.
She awoke during the assault and ran to report it to her sister.
Though Reese initially denied the accusations, her DNA was found on him, and his DNA was discovered on her.
At Reese’s sentencing for third-degree sexual assault, Protasiewicz seemed to doubt the claims of the victim and instead decided to treat the crime as a possible learning opportunity.
“Are you a danger to the public? I don’t think so,” she said to Reese. “I mean, I don’t think that you did anything other than engage in a crime of opportunity; and hopefully you’ve learned your lesson.”
Rape, a crime of opportunity?
Where is the #MeToo movement, the women’s rights activists?
Oh yeah, they are busy supporting Protasiewicz because she wants to kill babies, that is far more important to them than rape victims.
