You know Prosser as the "WMC Justice." Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce put about $6 million into his campaign. They spent like drunken sailors on leave. But they were not drunk; they knew what they were purchasing and so do you.
I have no idea what he's talking about. Ten years ago, Justice Prosser ran unopposed. I suspect that no one "poured" any nontrivial amount of money into a walkover. This year he is opposed, but it seems highly unlikely that anyone - let alone WMC - has spent anywhere near six million dollars on the race. Perhaps someone will (although there is not a lot of time left to do it), but it sure doesn't seem to have happened yet.
I have asked Garvey to substantiate his claim. If he can, I'll link to it here.
You'll be happy to know that the Illusory Tenant agrees with you. Too bad you cannot be correct more often.
To acknowledge an Ed Garvey comment implies that he retains an audience or credibility. Can that be?
That in turn raises the question of who the influential Wis bloggers are, regardless of political persuasion. I think the list is very short, but I probably am missing good candidates.
The citizens of the State need to know if J.Prosser has done anything in the last ten years to make our courts fair and impartial.
Not at all. In fact, I think that throwing up your hands and claiming everyone equally bad can reflect an unwillingness (or disinclination) to engage the issues. I absolutely believe that there are liberal writers who are very conscientious about accuracy and there are conservative writers who are not. Of course, all of us may miss things because of our perspective but, just to grab one example in the blogosphere, there is a world of difference between Jay Bullock and Ed Garvey.
Ed Garvey can be ignored.
Is Ed Garvey still alive?
