“It’s proof that this race is not nonpartisan,” Megna said. “It’s proof that the Republicans back Justice Roggensack. And the reason Republicans back Justice Roggensack is because they believe she will promote the Republican agenda.”
Megna – who has touted himself as a Democrat and said calling court races nonpartisan is a sham – contended the donations showed Roggensack is aligned with Republicans.
Roggensack has highlighted the importance of a nonpartisan Supreme Court, but her report showed she took in more than $9,000 from political committees affiliated with the Republican Party. That accounts for more than a quarter of the $34,460 she raised in the second half of 2012.
