Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

A Madison judge and her labor lovin' son

On last Friday night’s edition of InterCHANGE, liberal members of the panel Joel McNally and Denise Callaway made it a point to rub in my face that Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi who issued a temporary restraining order blocking publication of the budget repair bill into law was a Tommy Thompson.

I don’t care if she was appointed by the Pope. A bogus ruling is a bogus ruling.

Turns out the judge should have never taken the case. The blog Big Government reports the following about Judge Sumi:

“Her son is a political operative who also happens to be a former lead field manager with the AFL-CIO and data manager for the SEIU State Council. Both the SEIU and the AFL-CIO have members who are public-sector employees in Wisconsin.”

Can you say “conflict of interest”?
