Wisconsin Supreme Court Race WAY Too Close To Call
The race for the Wisconsin state supreme court seat currently held by Justice David Prosser is way too close to call as of this posting. The opponent, JoAnne Kloppenburg, has taken a razor-thin lead over Justice Prosser. Mrs. Kloppenburg now has a 224 vote lead. And it appears that, surprise, votes are coming in from the left-leaning counties of Dane and Milwaukee. Whoever wins, the real losers are the labor unions that thought they could overwhelm Justice Prosser and "send a message" to Gov. Scott Walker. Think about it. The state public employee unions got everyone in a tizzy and stomped on the capital, Madison, to protest the passage of the law that reforms the very unions. And yet they and their allies will have to steal this election. It will be the only way to get Mrs. Kloppenburg on the court. Thanks to The Other McCain's analysis, it made me realize how underwhelming the public employee unions and their allies performed in this election. And that even if Mrs. Kloppenburg "wins" the election, it will be a tainted victory. If she had won by say 55%, then the case could be in favor of the public employee unions. But the fact that this will be stolen pretty much sums up how the unions and their allies operate. By fraud. I hope that Justice Prosser pulls this off and he retains his seat. If he does, it will be a victory for the rule of law. If not, it will be a victory for voter and labor union fraud. Funny how that goes hand in hand.
