One of the candidates running for Wisconsin Supreme Court says a story that questions her son’s role in a deadly drug overdose last year crossed the line.
Judge Jenifer Dorow issued a statement yesterday after the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel ran a piece that linked Dorow’s son Michael to the death of a UW-Milwaukee student Cade Reddington. The story relies on interviews with unnamed sources who say Dorrow’s son sold Reddington a Percocet that likely was fentanyl. Reddington later died of a drug overdose. Judge Dorrow said her children should be ‘off limits’ in the campaign for Supreme Court. She added that there needs to be a sense of ‘decency’ in our elections.
