Departed WJCIC member donated to Gableman

A recently departed member of the State Bar's Wisconsin Judicial Campaign Integrity Committee gave $100 to Michael Gableman's campaign shortly after leaving the body.

The committee has come under fire in conservative circles for political ties some members have, including a donation member Tony Earl gave to Louis Butler's unsuccessful 2000 campaign for the court.

DeEtte Beilfuss-Eager was added to the committee in late January following some of that criticism. But she mailed the State Bar a letter dated March 5 announcing she was leaving because of personal reasons, Bar spokesman Tom Solberg said. He said the Bar was not aware of the letter until March 17.

Beilfuss-Eager gave Gableman $100 on March 14, according to the Burnett County judge's campaign finance report.

Solberg declined to release her letter to the Bar, and Beilfuss-Eager is not listed in the Madison phone book.

None of the remaining committee members -- Tom Basting, Tim Cullen, Dennis Dresang, Earl, Joe Heim, Bill Kraus, Neil Nettesheim and Carol Toussaint -- donated to either campaign during the most recent reporting period, according to a check of both candidates' finance reports.
