The three branches of Wisconsin government.The peace of the cheese-worshippers in Wisconsin is once more under threat because, uh, what has Koch Brothers’ vanity project Scott Walker done this time? Oh, wait, it’s not him for just this once. It’s a different Koch-aine addict, of course: recently and barely re-elected Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser allegedly tried to choke another justice in her chambers after she asked him to leave. Justice Ann Walsh Bradley told the AP that he attacked her after an argument over the court’s ruling upholding the anti-union law of Governor Koch-lover, which Prosser supported like a good little drone. So be warned, Bradley, if you or anyone else want to criticize the Koch directives. They will just go ahead and flip the “identify and destroy” switch in Prosser’s chip. We are entering Phase II, America.

From the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, in an article published late Saturday, reported that the incident took place in Justice Bradley’s chambers on June 13, the day before the court issued its decision upholding a bill to curtail the collective bargaining rights of public employees.

The sources who spoke to the Center and WPR said an argument about that ruling culminated in a physical altercation in the presence of other justices. They say Bradley purportedly asked Prosser to leave her office, whereupon Prosser grabbed Bradley by the neck with both hands.

The dissenting opinion called the ruling upholding the anti-union law “disingenuous, based on disinformation,” “lacking a reasoned, transparent analysis” and laden with “numerous errors of law and fact,” which all sound about right. [Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism]

    Oh the damn librul media on this! You simply could not escape this story this weekend, especially on the Sunday Blows. It did not involve a weiner, or a Democrat.

    • bumfug

      Ah, the media! NY Daily News headline: "The Madison Strangler" in 4…3…2..

  • RoboGuppy

    That's what happens to Kock-blockers in Wisconsin.

  • horsedreamer_1

    Walker didn't go Wayne Brady on anyone, but he did try to do this: holding his budget signing ceremony at the home of a known tax felon.

    Walker admin moves budget signing from tax felon's home

    (Daniel Bice is everything disingenous Newspaper Guild member-in-good-standing Tom Kertscher is not.)

    (That's right: the PolitiFact crew is union. Let's see how long Journal Communications allows that. (Frankly, I am surprised Charlie "Three wives" Sykes hasn't cowed his employer into chopping the Trotskyites in the Guild.))

    • fuflans

      so what is WI thinking of their so charming teatard gov? is the recall a possibility (yes, i know it can't be until he's been in office a year and what a LOT of damage he can do in that time)? does he still have a support base? is WI sorry yet?

      • horsedreamer_1

        The recall is going to go ahead. The energy is still there to get signatures starting November (I think they can collect one year after the election, but cannot submit them 'til one year after the inaugural). & it's funny: the street I live on, it's a block north of the Goobner's pre-Goobner's-Mansion address, & about two blocks up from the intersection of my street & the Goobner's, there's a "Recall (Scott) Walker" sign on the lawn of a rather riche manche. I cannot imagine his family likes having to drive past that, on the way to the interstate.

  • Schmannnity

    Aren't these the same people complaining about "union goons?"

    • Yes, and this is their idea of a judicial gag order.

    • GOPCrusher

      The word is "thugs". Makes them sound scarier.

    • glamourdammerung

      Yes, they are.

      However, I have yet to see any of them crawl out from under their rock to tell us how Prosser is really just a leftist plant put there to make conservatives look like crazed scumbags.

  • Radiotherapy®

    A Dirty Prosser?
    It left Bradley cross-eyed.

    • Is Prosser a poser?

      • horsedreamer_1

        He does like to Vogue (if what they say is true).

      • Radiotherapy®

        hey weej, it looks like our "p" nesses are neck and neck.

        • we are one with the Wonkette

            The spirit of Alvin Greene remains.

  • Prosser: Sometimes ya just gotta choke a bitch!

    How can we be outraged about this when mean librul Fox News asked Michele Bachmann if she is a flake? Won't someone think of the REAL abused woman here?!

    I'm sure Fox news will be all over this, or not.

    • FAUX Nooze: Justice Ann Walsh Bradley assaulted David Prosser in her office.
      ~

      • Haha. Bradley's Neck Attack's Prosser's Hands; Prosser Sues

        • tessiee

          I heard she also head-butted his fist.

      • horsedreamer_1

        One account claims she put her fists up. & the natural, self-defense posture to such a threat &/or "threat" is to get one's face right up in the other's face & choke her.

        Because you want your face closer to the person holding up their fists.

      • Prosser DID try to spin it that she ran toward him and his hands 'may have' touched her neck. Then I guess she wouldn't stop leaning against his hands, which he couldn't move for all the shock.

    • They'll think it's a knee slapping gag.

    • Arken

      Fox reports Justice Bradley threateningly ran neck-first into Prosser's coincidentally thrust-forward and tightening hands.

      • Didn't see your ref to this b4 my newer comment. But, I'd like to add that he's old so it's possible the arthur-ritis in his hands was acting up as she bum rushed him.

        • horsedreamer_1

          Excalibur!

    • poorgradstudent

      Hell, I'd be surprised if any news program that's not on PBS or NPR covers this, especially when there's still sleazy little details to wring out of the dead toddler trial.

      • BeWoot

        I haven't heard it on NPR, either. PBS? This story is not really their style, is it?

        • poorgradstudent

          I don't know for sure. I was just naming the only two major American news outlets that usually don't get obsessed over crap like the whole Kaylee (or however the hell you spell that name) thing.

  • The pen might not be mightier than the sword but it's definitely mightier than "Choke A Bitch"

  • First it was chickens, now it is judges, this man needs help.

      As a regular chicken choker, I can tell you that it is perfectly healthy behavior. Justice-choking, not so much.

      And choke the chicken afterwards.

  • CalamityJames

    Hey, ummm, something wonderful happened in new york just the other day. Just thought I'd point that out since the wonkett doesn't seem interested.

    • horsedreamer_1

      By not reporting it, Wonkette is taking stance that it is not a matter of momentous change but a matter of course. Of course, marriage rights should be extended to same-sex couples. & they were. But let's not go letting New York get a big head over it. Especially since Iowa beat them to it.

    • Arken

      Since when is Wonkette in the business of reporting wonderful events?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      At a blazing average of 1 post per hour during the work day, it's probably not fair to castigate Wonkette for not putting the NY gay marriage thing at the top of their list. After all, this is America, and robed violence trumps legalization of butt-sex/carpet-munching.

      • LesBontemps

        But isn't teh buttsechs pretty much Wonkette's mission statement?

      • CalamityJames

        Normally, I'd be in complete agreement. But, if I have to suffer through every inane Palin post, or if I have to see pics of Weiner's weiner from every possible angle, then I feel that it is appropriate to see the queens celebrate in Queens.

        Also, too, are you a flake?

    • SorosBot

      But it happened over the weekend, when Wonkette usually shuts down; and now everything's been said.

      • valgal2342

        Wonkette is taking the day to get dressed up in drag and run off to Waterloo for the Michele Bachman Prez run announcement.

        That's Ugg Libel!

          Ugg is prolly my favourite internet commenter since the demise of Leon Jenkins, the Midnite Rider.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Latrell Sprewell approves, and PJ Carlesimo is headed down to the sympathy card aisle at the Hallmark store right now.

  • I'm sure the choking was consensual.

  • EatsBabyDingos

    In Texas, we were taught to "lean back and enjoy it" if we were raped or beaten. Prosser is a Texan?

        The Dingo is referring to this gem from our past. Fortunately, Ann Richards kicked his ass.

        • James Michael Curley

          Ann Richards is greatly missed. She of the comment about Geroge H.W. Bush, "Poor George, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth."

      • EatsBabyDingos

        It's a "lemonade from lemons" that's brought out by some male Texas legislator every ten years. Never spoken by someone who has been raped, beaten or sexually abused.

        • PristineODummy

          Well, then! The *obvious* cure for that is to rape, beat, and sexually abuse every Texan male legislator.

        • prommie

          Ahh, I see. Here in the greater NYC area, this approach to being raped was notoriously advocated by the late, great Tex Antoine. Notice the "Tex?"

    • SorosBot

      Maybe, but that statement also applies to Sarah Palin's Alaska.

  • SorosBot

    The guy has been verbally abusive to his female fellow justices before, so this shouldn't have been a surprise. Why the hell did you reelect this creep, Wisconsinites?

    Oh, what's that? You didn't, but the election was blatantly stolen, and nobody did anything about it? Sigh. We're not really living in a democracy anymore.

    • Crank_Tango

      that vote fraudster was probably just a democrat plant trying to make republicans look bad and also insane.

      • PristineODummy

        It's what DemonRats do.

  • baconzgood

    Here's how I would explain it if I was Prosser's spin doctor:

    You two are in a healthy relationship where erotic asphyxiation is a intrical part of love play. It affirms trust.

    Just say that lie over and over again and again and Faux Noose watchers will believe it.

    • horsedreamer_1

      This would align with one of the theories of the U.S. Supreme Court that Jon Stewart's America — the Book put forth.

  • LetUsBray

    Don't worry; I'm sure they'll "find" 7,000 witnesses saying she actually choked him.

    • mumbly_joe

      If anything, *she* should apologize to *him*, just like that paultard who trampled that lady's head, for freedom.

      A deep-throated apology to that man is in order for what she's done to him.

  • Arken

    Ike Turner was black… so no.

  • Guppy06

    Considering he won his reelection on a platform of "I will destroy the bitch," is anybody really all that surprised he went Gibbons? Luckily for Bradley, she wasn't the right bitch he wants to destroy, or at least she's lower on his personal Destroy-a-Bitch List.

    Civics lesson of the day: elections have consequences.

    Prosser: She was asking for it.

    • Damn you. I was going to say that, with those sexy-sexy robes, she was asking for it. If only she had been wearing a burqa, Prosser would not have been tempted to seduce her with his "you're so hot, lying there unconscious/dead and disrobed" move.

      [edit: And for those of you in D.C. who might want to raise awareness that fuckers like Prosser are much too common, don't forget to participate in SlutWalk D.C..]

    • Geminisunmars

    So it takes 2 weeks to find out when a Republican Kochhead chokes a liberal, and nothing is done about it, but the Obama administration fires Shirley Sherrod in less than 24 hours after a Breitbart video comes out. Sounds about right.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Sherrod already had a two-strikes count: black, & female.

      Prosser, meanwhile, is working the count: white, Republican, closetted… He's going to walk.

    • Crank_Tango

      the liberal media works in mysterious ways…

    • tessiee

      Obama can't throw a cigarette butt on the lawn without the lynch mob showing up on his doorstep. Imagine the fifteen-minute orgasm they'd have if some right-wing skank disagreed with Obama and he choked her.

  • horsedreamer_1

    BOTH SIDES DO IT.

  • horsedreamer_1

    Greta's from Appleton, same as Prosser; she prolly knows the guy, &/or his family. Why is she commenting on this?

    But wait a minute, I thought Rethuglicans weren't violent at all? They don't really "mean it" when they put gun sights on people's photos, the same people who later get shot in the head, nor do they really mean it when they try to strangle them. Lighten up libs!

    • It was only a neck-hug, because he cares so much!

    • GOPCrusher

      Obviously she put her throat in his hands in the hopes of making him look bad.

      He was merely trying to point to the surveyors' marks on her neck.

  • Why all the fuss? Choking grown women is fine, as long as you protect them when they're embryos. Plus, women aren't citizens, just ask Scalia.

  • PsycWench

    Perhaps we should all travel to Wisconsin to serially choke this guy, since choking isn't that big a deal.

    • Choking a judge would violate several felony codes: assault, threatening a judge, etc. Choking a bitch is just America's Pastime.

    Republicans prefer their vampires blood-sucking, not arithmetic.

    Prosser, for one, is unabashedly Team Edward.

  • James Michael Curley

    Prosser has sullied the name of one of America's finest law proffs. For that, alone, he should be disbarred. Then he can pursue a more appropriate calling – Grand High Executioner.

      He's not related to *that* Prosser, is he?

      • James Michael Curley

        Who knows? Dean Prosser was from Minn. Judge 'choke the bitch' Prosser is from Wisc. MN, WI they all sound alike and on those long, cold winter nights a cousin looks mighty appealing.

  • SorosBot

    What report? Just like the tens of thousands of union protesters in Wisconsin don't deserve any near as much coverage as a teabagger rally attended by dozens, and millions of people participating in anti-war protests all over the world don't deserve any coverage whatsoever, Republican misbehavior is something to be ignored; it's not like a Democrat who say jaywalked, then like a married Democrat who flirted with some women he would have to be hounded out of office.
