Democratic Party of Wisconsin Statement on Jim Troupis

MADISON, Wis. — Today, the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s far-right majority reappointed fake elector collaborator Jim Troupis to another term on the Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee, a committee which advises state judges and judicial officers on the Code of Judicial Conduct.

Troupis was deeply involved in Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, including representing Trump’s campaign before the Wisconsin Supreme Court in a lawsuit seeking to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes. Troupis also served as a top Wisconsin advisor in Trump’s plot to overturn the election through the appointment of fake presidential electors.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Oslund issued the following statement on Troupis’ reappointment:

“Jim Troupis was an eager collaborator in Donald Trump’s failed fake elector plot to overturn the results of Wisconsin’s 2020 election, and the notion that he would be reappointed to a committee responsible for advising judges on their conduct as officers of the court is laughable. By reappointing Jim Troupis, the Supreme Court’s far-right majority has again kowtowed to the extreme partisan politics of Trump’s GOP, and it’s critical we restore fairness and common-sense on April 4th by electing Judge Janet Protasiewicz.”
