Rudolph Randa Hit on the Chris Hayes Show

Judge Rudolph Randa drawing flak
Update: "He never should have allowed himself to be involved in that case (Eric O’Keefe and Wisconsin Club for Growth, Inc. v Francis Schmitz) ," said Monroe Freedman, a Hofstra Law School professor and judicial ethics expert, of Randa. (Elbow, The Capital Times)

In a segment on the judge who ended Scott Walker's probe (for now) and tried to destroy all evidence, MSNBC's Chris Hayes referenced U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa's all-expenses-paid trips to legal seminars, "funded by the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, and other ideological and corporate interests," as previously reported by PRWatch

Randa's outrageous ruling stopping a criminal investigation is drawing new attention as $tens of millions of rightwing money has apparently rendered some of the judiciary incompetent or corrupt.

"You can't lobby a judge, but you can wine and dine them," said Nicholas Confessore, correspondent for the New York Times.
