From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Supreme Court candidate Lisa Neubauer’s family ties to Planned Parenthoodappear to be paying off.
Neubauer’s parents were active in the Minnesota chapter of the organization, with her mother serving two terms as board chairwoman. Neubauer’s daughter, state Rep. Greta Neubauer, lists herself as a member of the abortion rights group.
Neubauer’s campaign said the appellate judge volunteered for Planned Parenthood in the 1990s but is uncertain whether she donated to the group. She hasn’t given to politicians or political groups since taking her seat on the bench a decade ago.
The judge was the lone dissenter in a 2016 appeals court case in which she wrote a 17-page opinion favoring Planned Parenthood.
Now Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin — the political arm of the state chapter — has endorsed Neubauer and this week began spending $100,000 on digital ads supporting her.
