Gableman besting Butler for late money

Burnett County Judge Michael Gableman had outraised Justice Louis Butler in late contributions by more than $30,000 with more than three-fourths of his money coming from five donors who hit the maximum, according to reports filed by early this afternoon.

The late contribution reports filed at the Government Accountability Board cover anything that's come in since the close of the last reporting period, March 17. Since then, Gableman has received 24 donations totaling $77,360, compared to 55 donations totaling $46,200 for Butler.

Gableman received $10,000 donations -- the maximum -- from Paul Singer, general partner at Elliott Management in New York City, and Bonnie Loeb, the executive assistant at the company. Jay Newman of New York, whose occupation was listed as finance, also gave $10,000.

Gableman also received $10,000 each from Gordon Singer and Jenny Singer. Their occupations and addresses weren't included in Gableman's reports, but the information had been requested.

Gableman also received $5,000 donations from: Richard Uihlein, an Illinois executive at ULINE; David Humphreys, president of TAMKO Roofing Products in Joplin, Mo.; and John Bryan, a retiree living in Oswego, Ore.

Butler's largest donations were five contributions of $2,500 each. They came from former Gov. Martin Schreiber, a lobbyist who announced his endorsement of Butler last week; Susan Herzog of Palm Gardens, Fla., the communications director for Herzog College; Patrick Dunphy, a Milwaukee attorney; and Thomas St. John, a Shorewood attorney.
