Wisconsin Family Action files complaint against Butler with Judicial Commission

Wisconsin Family Action has filed a complaint against Justice Louis Butler with the Wisconsin Judicial Commission charging that he "accepted contributions from LGBT interest groups and attorneys while telling the public that he wouldn't."

The complaint alleges that Butler's campaign accepted contributions from Fair Wisconsin, and says those donations jeopardize his ability to be impartial in cases before the state Supreme Court.

"Right now we are tracking several cases related to our pro-family, pro-traditional marriage position. Two of those cases are already before the Supreme Court. The other, a direct challenge to the constitutionality of the marriage amendment, will likely land there," WFA president Juliane Appling said in a statement released Friday. "We are very concerned about Justice Butler's ability to rule on these cases -- and any others of a similar nature -- in a fair and impartial way."

Wisconsin Judicial Commission executive director James Alexander said the group could not confirm or deny receiving the complaint.
