Obama defends nomination of former State Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler to federal judgeship

Email

President Obama is defending his nomination of former State Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler to a federal judgeship.

That's after some Republicans criticized it Thursday.

Menomonee Falls Congressman Jim Sensenbenner said Butler was voted off the bench in a statewide election last year and yet Obama gave him "a promotion, a lifetime appointment, and a pay raise."

Butler lost his Supreme Court seat to Michael Gableman.
