EXCLUSIVE: Former Stepson Says Janet Protasiewicz (Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate) Repeatedly Assaulted Elderly Judge


A family friend confirms Michael Madden told him about the alleged abuse when it was happening.


The former stepson of Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Janet Protasiewicz alleges that Protasiewicz repeatedly assaulted her then-husband – his elderly father Patrick J. Madden – by allegedly slapping Madden with an open hand so hard that she left part of a handprint on his face and aggressively pushing the 70-year-old veteran judge so forcefully that he injured his shoulder and almost fell.


Michael Madden told WRN in two lengthy interviews on different days that his father, a now deceased World War II and Korean War veteran who served on the Milwaukee County bench for 24 years, pulled the plug on his short marriage to Protasiewicz, then a 34-year-old assistant district attorney, because she repeatedly physically and verbally abused him.


“She was belligerent and pushed him and slapped him dozens of times, dozens of times,” Michael Madden said in an interview this week. “It happened on a fairly regular basis. At night, the whole thing would kind of break down. He was, again, 70 years old.”


“The pushing was close to knocking him over.”


Michael was 35 then, only a year older than Protasiewicz when she married Patrick Madden in 1997. Patrick Madden was 70 when he married Protasiewicz, who was less than half his age.


“It happened for months,” Michael said of the alleged abuse.
