Liberal Wisconsin Justices Looking Bad in "Chokegate"

I've had my hands full lately focusing on the Gunwalker investigation, but I have been at least reading along with what some are calling "Chokegate" (Ann Althouse has done a great job staying on top of this story).

Long story short: a liberal Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice named Ann Bradley has apparently tried to claim that another Supreme Court Justice, David Prosser, "choked" her.

The story had been leaked to a George Soros muckraking group, and then the incident seemed to get turned on its head when other witnesses came forth to indicate that while Prosser did put his hands up and touch Bradley's neck, it is because she was coming at him with fists raised, meaning the contact was defensive in nature, and Bradley was the aggressor.

The plot appears to be thickening now, with news that Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson may have had a hand in orchestrating the leak in an attempt to get the conservative Prosser impeached.

As the investigation moves forward, it appears than instead of collecting a conservative scalp, that the two liberal Wisconsin SCOTUS justices may face impeachment instead. If they are impeached—and that is far from certain at this point—Republican Governor Scott Walker will have the opportunity to add two conservative justices to the bench.

It appears that the plot to frame up Prosser has backfired spectacularly.

I can only wish for such a happy ending for all of convicted felon Soros' investments in deception.

I had seen the original story, but it appears the MSM has (of course) buried it now that it's looking bad for the liberals.

IIRC, didn't the argument that supposedly provoked this have something to do with the teacher's union law fiasco? This could make things interesting in WI for a while.

They've been after Prosser for a long time. They tried to run the female against him last year with union backing in hopes of taking him out; now it looks like they are trying a 'new' tact...

Typical Lib tactic, start a fight and then claim you're being attacked when the victim defends themselves. Seen it many times.

it is typical of libtard projection.

they are thugs and they use thug tactics but they are allways trying to paint their opponents as thugs
