Here is the exact quote from the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) advertisement touting the crime fighting abilities of their candidate for Justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court:
As a prosecutor, Judge Michael Gableman tackled arson, sexual assault, domestic violence and white collar crime.
Here are the facts:
- Gableman prosecuted only one arson case. The defendant was acquitted. That is correct, Gableman failed to get a single arson conviction in his entire career as a prosecutor.
- Gablemean participated in 19 felony child abuse cases. There was one, count it on one finger, one case, that resulted in a prison sentence.
And WMC wants us to believe them on complicated public policy issues, taxation policy, and the education of children.
