Dallet removes photo of boat ride to freedom

Empower Wisconsin | June 2, 2020

MADISON — It looks like Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet has pulled down Facebook photos of her recent boat ride to freedom. 

As Empower Wisconsin reported last week, the liberal jurist was pictured in sunglasses enjoying a sunny Memorial Day Weekend joy ride on a packed boat— an excursion that still would have been illegal under the Evers administration’s statewide Safer at Home order that Dallet has defended. 

The photo on her Facebook page was gone as of Monday, a few days after Dallet’s press handler offered a lame excuse for the justice’s fun-in-the-sun lake cruise. 

“Justice Dallet and her family are social distancing alongside one other family who are very close friends,” Dallet spokeswomen Alanna Conley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Dan Bice. Dallet wouldn’t answer Empower Wisconsin’s requests for comment. “Nothing could have been safer than staying away from others out on a lake on a beautiful spring day,” Conley added. 

Well, yes, staying at home would be safer, according to the liberal governor she defended. That’s what Dallet would have had her fellow Wisconsin citizens do. 

The Evers administration’s statewide lockdown was not set to expire until a day after Memorial Day, and very well may have been extended by Gov. Tony Evers’ power-grabbing health department chief had the court’s conservative majority not issued its 4-3 decision  invalidating the order.

  

The far left Dallet, in fact, issued a snide dissent. She excoriated the majority and, really, anyone who believes Evers overreached in closing churches, banning travel, shuttering “nonessential” businesses, and altogether ignoring the Constitution in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In short, Dallet stood for the rule of the executive in a time of crisis — at least the liberal executive in power. 

She has taken some heat in recent days. Fox News host Tucker Carlson lampooned Dallet last week, describing her boat ride as, “Lockdown for thee, but not for me.”  

“Whether it’s governors in Illinois and Michigan — or now liberals in Wisconsin — it’s clear that the Radical Left’s mantra on these lockdowns has become ‘ for thee, not me,’” Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said in a statement to Empower Wisconsin. “Now we need to focus on getting our economy back from the brink after the disastrous shutdown.”
