"Stuff FROM MI"


... But the focus is shifting... On April 5th we vote for a new Supreme Court Justice....

And what has happened in Madison makes this a big vote with the oft mentioned illegal, unethical and scurrilous, carpetbagger  conduct of some State Republican  legislators and Scott Walker.  One candidate, running against a conservative incumbent "deserves attention " 
Not that a name like JoAnne Kloppenburg is easy to forget........


Her opponent self describes.....

"I am the only judicial conservative in the race.  The April election will determine whether the court continues a common sense application of the rule of law or whether it will turn back to the judicial activism that Wisconsin voters have repeatedly rejected." David Prosser.

"Here's another opinion of "   David Prosser from a Wisconsin Blooger

And Slate.... weighs in :

Three Electoral Tests in Wisconsin

David Dayen makes a point about Wisconsin that lots of folks are missing.
"The matchup between David Prosser (R) and JoAnn Kloppenberg (D) for the state Supreme Court on April 5 just got very interesting. It’s a statewide vote, and the balance of power on the state Supreme Court is at stake. Right now there are 4 Republicans and 3 Democrats on the court, but one of those Republicans is Prosser. Expect lots of organizing and millions of dollars poured into this election, which is much like a political election, with debates and everything. If Democrats win, the legality of what took place tonight may be put in greater question.
I saw homemade "Vote Kloppenberg April 5" signs when I was in Madison last month, carried by people protesting in the Capitol. Her campaign website is fairly staid, with not many news updates in the last few weeks, and a message that will limit what liberals can do for her.
Because we are taking public financing, we cannot accept financial contributions from any source.
But that's an election third-party groups are going to want to look at. Another election to look at: The May 3 ballots for three vacant Assembly seats, emptied out by Gov. Scott Walker as he built his administration. A third election to look at, of course, will be the recall of senators that can happen in early Summer if petitioners, on the Democratic or the Republican side, succeed. Greg Sargent reported
yesterday that Democratic petitioners are 15 percent of the way to the signature requirements on the eight recalls they're attempting; there are rallies across Wisconsin today where, presumably, more people can sign up."

Why do I suspect Prosser is a judicial conservative cast out the same mold as self-described strict constuctionist, no-legislating from the bench, honoring established law liars John Roberts and Sam Alito?
