Burke to give controversial campaign donation to charity

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Mary Burke's campaign for governor says a donation from a domestic abuse suspect will be given to charity. Daniel Rottier, who heads a large personal injury law firm, gave $4,500 to Burke's campaign before he was accused of using a cane to beat his wife.

Online court records indicate that a plea deal has been set in Rottier's Dane County case, and a hearing is set for tomorrow in Madison. He's currently charged with misdemeanor battery. Prosecutors said the 62-year-old Rottier was drunk when he caned his wife, as the two argued about plans to take their children to a movie.

Burke campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Rottier's donation will be given to the Domestic Abuse Intervention Services of Madison. The non-profit agency operates a shelter for domestic abuse victims. State G-O-P director Joe Fadness said Burke changed course after she was called out on the subject -- and he agrees the donation is a better use of Rottier's money.
