Candidate Burke will donate contribution to charity

Officials with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke say that they will make a charitable donation with the hefty campaign check they received from a well-known trial attorney accused of caning his wife.

On Dec. 20, Daniel Rottier, president of the personal injury firm Habush, Habush & Rottier, chipped in $4,500 to Burke’s campaign. Burke is taking on Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Rottier, 62, was charged earlier this month with a misdemeanor battery count of using a dangerous weapon to commit domestic abuse. A plea hearing is set for Friday.
