A bombshell report broke today on Judge Rudolph Randa—whose writing contrived and heavily criticized orders halting the Wisconsin John Doe probe investigating dark money and possible illegal collusion with the Scott Walker Recall campaign—regularly attended all-expenses-paid junkets, "funded by the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, and other ideological and corporate interests."
Brendan Fischer broke the story at PRWatch today.
Randa has a history of nakedly corrupt judicial policymaking.
Randa presided over the infamous prosecution of Georgia Thompson in 2007 by former U.S. Attorney Stephen Biskupic (2001-2008).
And Randa also refused to recuse himself from a case, decided by a federal bankruptcy judge—the child molestation scandal-bankruptcy proceedings by creditors of the Milwaukee Archdiocese (Goodstein, NYT) with whom Randa was associated.
Randa reversed the decision of a federal bankruptcy judge in July 2013 after the Milwaukee Archdiocese transferred $57 Million to a cemetery fund to avoid paying the rape and sexual assault victims of Catholic priests.
