Wisconsin Supreme Court Race
Wisconsin Club for Growth (who are they?) has entered the fray. They are running an ad portraying Joanne Kloppenberg as anti business because in her job as an assistant attorney general for the State of Wisconsin she prosecuted cases where businesses and farmers were the defendants and she was successful. That makes me think that the state had a good case. So, one is left to ponder what exactly Club for Growth is looking for, my guess is that they are looking for an activist who would overturn pesky laws regulating air, water, and soil pollution. That we need to deregulate things like worker safety. They are looking for a judge that will allow them to accomplish what they have been unable to accomplish legislatively. And to think that Justice Prosser has been running away from the idea that he is in the hip pocket of the Governor. Club for growth has basically said that justice Prosser will be that reliable vote for the Governor and business as the court goes about the business of overturning all laws that may affect business. Open for Business indeed. I want to open a factory and discharge my water into a class one trout stream, with justice Prosser's help I may be able to make that a reality.
