A uber liberal children’s court judge in Wisconsin has now been arrested on charges of child pornography.
Brett Blomme was assigned to Milwaukee County Children’s court allegedly uploaded the porn between October and November of 2020.
As The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Federal investigators allege that Brett Blomme, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, uploaded child pornography on a messaging app in October and November 2020. Blomme was assigned to the Milwaukee County Children’s Court, according to a list of officials on the court’s website.
Kik, the messaging app Blomme allegedly used, flagged the judge’s communications to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which sparked the federal investigation. Blomme allegedly uploaded 27 videos through the app, according to an affidavit reviewed by Urban Milwaukee. Kik is a popular messaging app among teenagers.
Blomme defeated Paul Dedinsky, former Wisconsin Republican governor Scott Walker’s pick for the bench, in an April election. Before taking the bench in August, Blomme was president and CEO of the Cream City Foundation, a group that distributes grant money to Milwaukee-based LGBTQ groups. He previously served as the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin’s donations director and worked for Rep. Gwen Moore (D., Wis.) and Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett (D.).
While Wisconsin judges are ostensibly nonpartisan, Blomme dubbed himself a “progressive alternative” to Dedinsky during his campaign, Law and Crime reported. Blomme calls himself a “community activist” who “spent his career fighting for the most marginalized in [the] community” on his website.
Bloom also reportedly has two children and a husband.
And as News Talk 1130 reports, Blomme is an influential figure in Left-wing politics in Milwaukee:
Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Brett Blomme, who was charged Wednesday with seven counts of possession of child pornography, is a popular and influential figure among elected Democrats in Milwaukee. A very close ally of the city’s longtime mayor, Tom Barrett, Blomme was supported and endorsed by nearly every major Democrat and left-wing group involved in Milwaukee politics when he ran for a seat on the court last year.
“I support Brett because, like me, he is committed to making Milwaukee a better place for all of us,” said U.S. Congressman Gwen Moore when she endorsed Blomme’s judicial run last winter. “Brett is the change we need to help fix our broken criminal justice system.”

Blomme called this a “key endorsement” that helped propel him to a win over incumbent Paul Dedinsky. Blomme was seated on the bench in August and was serving in Children’s Court at the time of his arrest.
