MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers is now accepting applications for Milwaukee County Circuit Court-Branch 5 judge. “The appointment will fill a vacancy created by Brett R. Blomme’s resignation.”
Missing from Evers’ press release is the fact that the man he happily selected as Milwaukee children’s court judge is looking at a long prison sentence as he prepares to plead guilty to federal child porn charges.
Blomme finally resigned this week. He didn’t mention the reason for his departure either in his two-sentence letter to Evers.
“Please accept my resignation as the elected judge of Branch 5 of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. My resignation is effective immediately,” he wrote.
Prosecutors allege he used a messaging app to upload videos of children being sexually abused. Blomme believes he is still entitled to his salary since March, when he was formerly charged.
Evers’ selected Blomme for the bench on the hearty recommendation of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
“I have had the opportunity to watch Brett grow into a leader and a strong advocate for Milwaukee, a person of impeccable integrity and someone who has worked to make Milwaukee a more diverse and equitable place for all,” the Democrat wrote.
Milwaukee Congresswoman Gwen Moore at the time said Blomme was “the change we need to help fix our broken criminal justice system.”
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.
As Evers takes applications to fill the vacant children’s court seat, let’s hope this governor exhibits better judgment this time around.
