Wisconsin, Do The Right Thing
NEW UPDATE: With 97% of precincts reporting statewide, Justice Prosser has pulled ahead after trailing most of the evening. Here is the latest count: David Prosser: 703,675 50% JoAnne Kloppenburg: 701,760 50% Makes this race tighter than a Janitor In A Drum. Expect a lot of hollering on the left if this trend continues. It will be a victory for the rule of law and an independent judiciary. UPDATED AND BUMPED: Here is where you can keep up with the results of this election. Come on Wisconsin, don't let us down! Good people of the Badger State of Wisconsin, I implore on you to do the right thing and vote to retain state supreme court justice David Prosser today! The race matters because at this point, the Wisconsin state supreme court has a 4-3 conservative majority. If his opponent, assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg, wins, it could put the union reform legislation of Gov. Scott Walker in serious danger. It is already in danger. Dane county judge Maryann Sumi has issued a temporary injunction blocking the union reform from taking place. If it does get to the Wisconsin state supreme court, the difference is going to be who is in this seat. The incumbent Justice Prosser or Mrs. Kloppenburg. This race is ground zero for reforming the out of control public employee unions that are bankrupting many enabling states such as the once Golden State of California. Wisconsin voters I believe will make a difference and vote to retain Justice Prosser. But, you need to V O T E.
