Wis. justice incorrectly listed judge as endorser

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack incorrectly listed a reserve judge as 1 of her endorsers despite being told that he did not support her.

Roggensack adviser Brandon Scholz tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Robert Kinney's name was listed in error, and it was removed from her web site by Saturday. The newspaper reports it was the second time Roggensack listed an endorsement she did not actually receive.

Kinney emailed Roggensack last week to object, saying he disagreed with her on virtually every 4-3 decision from the court. She wrote back to say he was listed by mistake and his name would be taken down.

Kinney says he's satisfied.

Roggensack faces Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone in the April 2 election. The winner will serve a 10-year term.
