Unwilling to accept the fact that Rebublicans had a resounding victory in Wisconsin last November, and that the Wisconsin legislature recently passed a bill restricting some union activity, Big Liberalism is on the march again. This time their focus is the April 5 election for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
First a bit of background. The validity of the new law is now pending before the Wisconsin Supreme Court. That court currently leans to the right, with four tending to be conservative, and three tending to be liberal.
Current Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, who tends to vote conservatively, is up for reelection on April 5. His opponent is Joanne Kloppenburg, an assistant state attorney, an environmental lawyer, and a definite “left-leaner”. Although Wisconsin Supreme Court elections are typically pretty docile, this one has taken on a life of its own.
A liberal leaning outfit called the Greater Wisconsin Committee has thrown some $3 million into the race and launched a web site, ProsserEqualsWalker…, to whip heat against the Governor into the race.
One of the ads against Justice Prosser, sponsored by Greater Wisconsin, was particularly offensive, untrue and, well, “sleazy”. Apparently, the left will stop at nothing, including besmirching a good justice, to accomplish their goals. But here is the interesting part.
At a recent debate between Justice Prosser and Ms. Kloppenburg, Ms Kloppenburg was asked by the judge whether she would ask that the ad be pulled. You can go to the link and see the video, but, essentially she said “no”.
I’m certainly glad that someone with that moral character, or should I say, lack of moral character, isn’t running for the Florida Supreme Court.
