MILWAUKEE — Hillary Clinton waded into local politics during her visit to Wisconsin, criticizing a state Supreme Court candidate whose college writings two decades ago slammed gays, abortion rights, and even Clinton’s husband former president Bill Clinton.
During a campaign stop in Milwaukee on Saturday, the Democratic presidential nomination front-runner described Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Bradley’s comments while a student at Marquette University as “hate speech.”
Clinton told the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Founders’ Day dinner: “No to discrimination. No to hate speech. And no to Bradley.”
Bradley wrote then that homosexuals are “queers and “degenerates.” After Bill Clinton won the presidential election in 1992, she called him “queer loving.” Bradley has repeatedly apologized during the campaign, saying she is embarrassed by the “content and tone” of what she wrote.
