Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Judge Janine Geske endorses Joe Biden for president:
Janine Geske, a retired state Supreme Court justice appointed by Republican former Gov. Tommy Thompson, on Thursday endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president.
“I am, one, so very upset with this president and what he has done with the country and our institutions,” Geske said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel. “And, secondly, I have such confidence in Joe Biden that he’s the kind of peacemaker, intelligent, hard-working kind of guy that we need in the presidency.”
“I just decided I couldn’t stand it anymore,” she said. “Things are so bad in this country now, we just need to turn it around.”
and a brief bio:
Geske was appointed by Republican former Gov. Lee Dreyfus to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court in 1981, then appointed in 1993 by Thompson to the Supreme Court, where she served until 1998.
