JESSE JACKSON'S JUSTICE
Joining the senators on the stage at the end of the rally were U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, U.S. Reps. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Kind and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who has been a familiar presence at the Capitol over the last few weeks. Only Jackson spoke, asking the crowd first to first remember the people affected by the tsunami in Japan.
Then he noted the upcoming Wisconsin Supreme Court election, which features a face-off between incumbent David Prosser, a former Republican legislator and conservative, and challenger Joanne Kloppenburg. Many see the election as a referendum on Walker and other Republicans.
Come alive April 5," Jackson shouted to the crowd.
This s a direct attack on the independent judiciary... and a clear indication of the apparent wilingness of the left to politicize the state's high court.
