Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman backs liars' rights

Last week, in an underreported story, state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman issued his formal response to misconduct charges filed against him by the state Judicial Commission regarding claims made in one of his TV ads.

Gableman's response denies the ad violated a state rule barring judicial candidates from making false and misleading statements. But its main thrust is to attack the rule as "unconstitutional in that it infringes [on] protected free speech." Gableman wants the rule struck down, so future judicial candidates can more freely lie their way into office.

What a fitting legacy that would be for Justice Gableman.
