Burnett County DA to consider criminal charge against Gableman
Burnett County's district attorney says he'll consider a request to criminally charge State Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman.
Milwaukee County Board member John Weishan said Gableman broke a little-known law from 1911 that prohibits a person from making a "false representation pertaining to a candidate."
The state's Judicial Commission said Gableman put out a misleading campaign ad in March that attacked Justice Louis Butler, whom Gableman defeated in April.
