Well, this is certainly disturbing:
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser allegedly grabbed fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley around the neck in an argument in her chambers last week, according to at least three knowledgeable sources. […]
They say an argument that occurred before the court’s release of a decision upholding a bill to curtail the collective bargaining rights of public employees culminated in a physical altercation in the presence of other justices. Bradley purportedly asked Prosser to leave her office, whereupon Prosser grabbed Bradley by the neck with both hands.
Justice Prosser, contacted Friday afternoon by the Center, declined comment: “I have nothing to say about it.”
Obviously, if the allegations weren’t true, Prosser would “have something to say about it”. Sounds like at least some of the other justices were in Bradley’s office at the time.
Will Prosser resign?
If not, obviously the legislature ought to begin impeachment proceedings.
Unfortunately, with this legislature, you can’t assume that they’d be willing to impeach a justice for physically assaulting another justice … if the assaulter is a Republican.
