We hope Milwaukee County Circuit Judge John DiMotto will continue his warranted vigilance over the conduct of Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence chief attorney Jon Lowy and associate Alla Lefkowitz. Already bounced from one Milwaukee area case against a local gun dealer for posting inadmissible evidence, the scrutiny seems justified. Allowing them to stay on the case, the judge nevertheless warned to the pair: “This is not to say I approve of the [Brady] communication and statements.”
The judge in the earlier trial admonished the pair that the release of information was “contrary to the laws of ethics or the rules of ethics in the state of Wisconsin.”
Clearly, this tactic could emerge as a worrisome Brady staple: When data and the law are not on your side, involve the (biased, anti-gun) media. Oops, too late: It already has.
