Abuse victim says she “doesn’t believe Protasiewicz is fit to serve on the state’s highest court.”

MADISON, Wis.— Janet Protasiewicz is a soft-on-crime liberal who has repeatedly exercised poor judgment, having time and again disregarded victims’ safety and common sense.

Protasiewicz gave Lazarick Spade, a serial felon and man who brutally beat his wife (breaking her face) just 6 months. 

Spade immediately sought revenge; he shot at his now-ex-wife, Tamika Finchis, 19 TIMES. Tamika said “she lost a lung in the shooting and is still recovering. She “uses an inhaler and suffers from extreme anxiety.”

Finchis told the reporter “she doesn’t believe Protasiewicz is fit ” to serve on the state’s highest court.

Believe Tamika; her voice matters.
