All Woke Up: Political woke money dump

MADISON — You know why Milwaukee Congresswoman Gwen Moore supported Brett Blomme last year for Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge? Because, the Democrat said, Blomme was “the change we need to help fix our broken criminal justice system.”

A year later, after being elected to the bench as a children’s court judge, Blomme, 38,  faces several counts of child pornography after prosecutors allege he used a messaging app to upload videos of children being sexually abused.

Now Democrat politicians who gushed over this prominent leader in Milwaukee’s LGBTQ community can’t get away from Blomme fast enough.

As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, many of the Democrat leaders Blomme has supported over the years are dumping the judge’s campaign contributions like so much trash at a landfill. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he’ll donate the $300 in donations he’s received from Blomme over the years. And U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, a gay senator from Madison, told the newspaper she will unload the $1,000 Blomme contributed to her 2018 campaign to charities.

Blomme took in more than $65,000 in campaign contributions for his run for Milwaukee County judge, more than $10,000 of that from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. No word on whether the judge is giving any of that cash back.

It’s not clear whether Moore donated cash, but she certainly gave her full-throated endorsement to Blomme.

Of course, these Woke politicians fell all over themselves to support Blomme for his support of LGBTQ+ initiatives, like “Drag Queen Story Hour.” Blomme formerly served as president of the Cream City Foundation, a LGBTQ advocacy group that advertised DQSH, events “for children aged 3 to 8 years old.” The “literacy events” are intended to “capture children’s imagination and help them explore their gender fluidity through glamorous, positive and unabashedly queer role models,” according to the Drag Queen Story Hour’s official website.

Now, the Democrats who backed Blomme are dragging his campaign cash out of their coffers.

The painfully politically Woke do have their limits. Apparently being tied to an accused pedophile is the line.
