Another investigation requested into Gableman
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A government watchdog group is requesting another investigation into Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman for accepting free legal services from a law firm with cases before the high court.
The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign on Wednesday asked the Government Accountability Board to investigate whether Gableman violated campaign finance laws by not reporting the free legal services.
Democratic state Rep. Gary Hebl made a similar request to the board on Tuesday. Both Hebl and the Democracy Campaign have also asked the state Judicial Commission to look into Gableman.
Gableman received free legal services from Michael Best & Friedrich, a prominent law firm that defended the justice in an ethics case that arose out of the 2008 campaign.
