    thanks for tipping your hand.

      As I said above,

      I think that Prosser is a real piece of work. He's an asshole who pushed through a terrible decision on the law that Wisconsin's Republican legislators forced through. He's a jerk who disrespects women on a regular basis.

      But that knowledge, that he's a real jackass, doesn't impair MY ABILITY to reasonably look at the facts here.

      I understand it DOES affect the ability of many others to look at the evidence we have in a fair manner. That's other's flaws and failures, not mine.

      •  Do you know him? (0+ / 0-)

        You keep saying "He disrespects women on a regular basis". Do you have other examples of this? I know he called one justice the B word and said he would destroy her, but do you know that he just is rude to women or to all Democrats, for example?

          Justice Bradley, for example, has had multiple interactions with him that have driven her to be totally exasperated. She supposedly detailed these interactions in emails - and I believe that they happened.

          Here's a link to another person who talks about how disrespectfully he's behaved in the past while in the legislature.

          Here'sanother that describes the court as dysfunctional, partly as a result of Prosser's attitude.

          Bradley said Prosser's outbursts have occurred on and off over the years, but there has not been one of similar magnitude since the incident described in the e-mails.

          Prosser said he'd helped Abrahamson and Bradley in past campaigns but believed they were trying to get him off the court in the upcoming election. Bradley said she had not talked to Kloppenburg about her campaign, but did discuss the "pros and cons and realities" of a court campaign with others, including Marla Stephens.

          Stephens, the appellate director for the state Public Defender's Office, ran for the court but did not advance past last month's primary.

          Said Prosser: "There is not the slightest doubt that Ann wrote that e-mail to hurt me in this campaign - and here it is surfacing three weeks before the campaign."

          Bradley denied that. "I never intended that this would be public," she said. "I just wanted it to stop."

          She said she agreed to an interview in part because Prosser had been portrayed as even-keeled during the campaign.

          "You can say a lot of good things about David Prosser - and I do, and he is a good man - but you cannot accurately say he has a steady, even temperament," she said.

          That should get you started.
