Bradley Slimes The Bench
At RightWisconsin this morning:
Another Supreme Court election, another nasty campaign. Our lead story this morning: "Justice Bradley Slimes the Bench"
What an astounding coincidence!
On Tuesday, left-wing Marquette law professor Ed Fallone collects the endorsements of statewide teacher unions, AFSCME, Madison Teachers Incorporated, and the Service Employees International Union, for his run against state Supreme Court Justice Patricia Roggensack.
On Wednesday, Justice Ann Walsh Bradley rolls out a repulsive screed masquerading as a legal document, claiming Justice David Prosser has a “history of abusive behavior” and denouncing Roggensack as his “enabler.”
Did we mention that next Tuesday, Roggensack faces Fallone and Milwaukee lemon lawyer Vince Megna in a primary election?
Having followed the 2011 dust-up between Prosser and Bradley when it was somewhat current, we find this week’s pre-primary ambush subtly more colorful than the original accusations.
Not to question anyone’s veracity; we’re simply observing that the story seems to have improved over time, and with a crucial election five days away.
On Public TV’s Here and Now, law Professor Ed Fallone refers to himself as a "process conservative." That basically means he takes a long time and uses a lot of words before reaching his predictably liberal conclusion. Of course, reading Professor Fallone’s blog, you get the impression he is prone to making judgments without much thought at all.
He is also prone to conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact...
