SCOWIS Candidate Vince Megna on Capitol City Sunday

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Controversial Wisconsin Supreme Court Candidate Vince Megna is the featured guest on this weekend's edition of Capitol City Sunday.

Megna made a name for himself by becoming one of the most successful lemon law attorneys in the United States.

He has recently distinguished himself by running for the non-partisan Supreme Court as an unabashed Democrat.

"What came out this past week only proves that it is a partisan race," said Megna.

Megna says that's because the campaign finance statement submitted by sitting Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack is filled with donations from Republican contributors.

"The Republicans back Justice Roggensack and they back her because they believe that she's gonna put forth the Republican agenda," said Megna.

Megna says Roggensack and fellow challenger Ed Fallone, should drop the pretense that they are non-partisan.

"As a candidate for this Supreme Court, our highest court, I owe it to the people that I'm asking to vote for me, to tell them what I am, what I believe," said Megna.

But Megna admits, if he finishes in the top two of the February 19th primary, he will have to figure out a way to raise money to defeat Roggensack in April's general election.

"I've got a lot of friends, a lot of clients throughout the state, they're gonna have to chip in," said Megna.

In the second half of the show, Patricia Balke from the Wisconsin Association for Homeless and Runaway services, talks about what she calls the hidden and growing population of homeless teens.

"We just learned last month from the Department of Justice, there was 1,036 reported (cases), just in January," said Balke.  "Now, we know that most of the youth are not reported.  So, you can easily double that." 

Capitol City Sunday with Greg Neumann is on at 9:00 a.m. on WKOW 27.
