SCOWIS Candidate Ed Fallone featured on Capitol City Sunday

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- One of the men challenging Justice Pat Roggensack for her seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court has some charp criticism for her.

Marquette University Law Professor Ed Fallone is the featured guest on Capitol City Sunday. 

Fallone says the dysfunctional dynamic on the court has to change and it should start with Justice Roggensack.

"We have these personal feuds going back and forth and Justice Roggensack is a part of that problem.  She has been engaging in feuds and name calling with other Justices.  So, the part of the incivility, she bears some responsibility," said Fallone.

Roggensack has questioned Fallone's qualifications for the high court, which is something he takes exception to.

"I've been in the legal community in Wisconsin for over 20 years.  I'm very well known for my independence and integrity.  I've been outspoken on legal issues affecting the state, writing blog posts, doing media interviews on a regular basis, so, I think I have a clear record," said Fallone.

In the second half of the show, Lori Compas, the woman who unsuccessfully challenged Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) in a recall election last year, talks about her new role as a leader of a Wisconsin business lobby.

"I do see our organization representing more smaller businesses, more knowledge economy type businesses," said Compas, referring to the new Wisconsin Business Alliance.

Compas says the idea for the organizations started during the recall elections, especially in relation to Act 10, which curbed collective bargaining rights for public sector workers.

"A lot of small business owners were hearing ads or seeing ads that said, 'these reforms are good for business.'  And a lot of us were thinking, our customers have less money in their pockets now, how is this good for business?," said Compas.

Compas says that doesn't mean the Wisconsin Business Alliance is necessarily a "progressive" business group.

You can hear Compas talk more about that on Capitol City Sunday at 9:00 a.m. on WKOW 27.
