MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Latino-Jewish Alliance has announced that Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley won’t attend a forum with opponent JoAnne Kloppenburg later this month.
Alliance officials said in a news release Tuesday that Bradley notified them that she will no longer be able to participate in the March 29 forum at the Milwaukee Area Technical College. Elana Kahn, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, which comprises half of the alliance, said Bradley’s campaign cited a scheduling conflict.
Liberal group One Wisconsin Now said in a news release that Bradley doesn’t want to face the Jewish community after she equated abortion to the Holocaust in writings to a college newspaper in 1992.
Bradley campaign manager Luke Martz said he was putting together a response.
