Live thread: Wisconsin Supreme Court election - Prosser vs Kloppenburg
http://elections.620wtmj.com/G8801.htm ^ | 4/5/11

This election is important nationally too. If Kloppenburg is elected the Wisconsin mandate by the electorate in 2010 in this state will be negated by the WI Supreme Court and the unions will have won.

I live in a hardcore conservative area and discovered today that my Prosser yardsign was mutilated and thrown into one of my plantings.

Pray for Wisconsin and for Prosser's election!

What am I missing. If this is about the supreme court overturning the way the law was passed, can’t the legislature just vote again?

The early results are very close. God, I pray this doesn’t go to a recount. We know how those turn out.

Dane County is Madison. Yes, heavily liberal. If they’ve mostly reported, then Prosser should be OK

Dane is only about 10% in. The state as a whole is about 6% in.

The union made it an issue. Hopefully WI will slap them down.

Milwaukee is leaning 2-1 for Prosser.

Is that expected?

Dane County is probably to the left of Berkley and Castro.

50-50 at 9:45 EST looks like this one is going to be a nailbiter. How much you wanna bet the unions have a few extra uncounted ballot boxes that will magically appear in the next few days if the election is too close to call.

Milwaukee County hasn’t started reporting yet, that went 62% for Kerry in 2004. Turnout there will be interesting, because it could be high in some areas, low in others. Dane County hasn’t reported new votes in a while. I wouldn’t smell a rat just yet, but that is strange.

They could vote again but lib judges like Sumi + another lib on the SC could tie it up in knots and delays forever.

When it’s close, we lose because they cheat so badly. if we win narrowly, there’s always a recount and again we lose because of “found” ballots. I just know how they operate. They can’t win in a fair fight so they steal it through any means they can.

I would think that a local or state election strikes closer to home, especially given recent events in WI. The folks can decide if they want to continue down the path that’s led them to near bankruptcy, or accept that some restraints have to be put on govt.

Is it the case that this election has gotten a lot of publicity? Also, why now? Odd time for an election.

In this case it would shift the balance of power of the court to liberal - more than just this issue would be at stake.

If prosser loses, a liberal supreme court majority will overturn all Walker reforms. It won’t matter how many times the Legislature votes, the court will control ALL public policy.

It’s a shame that we all have to watch a judicial election as if it’s a race for the legislature. Then again, that’s exactly what the left has turned the judiciary in to.

No! This is awesome news! Dane County cannot take an election without Milwaukee County.

I’m not worried yet - (from Washington County, currently live in Madison Burb)

Numbers look good - watch, Jefferson, Rock, Racine, Kenosha.

Washington, Waukesha, Ozaukee will come out hammering soon.

Milwaukee needs to be stable.

If the Dems lose this, it’s going to be a HUGE slap in the face to the Moonbat Left, who have been pulling out all the stops, legal and otherwise, to prove a point with this election.

I’ll say this: considering all the pro-union publicity, the large demonstrations and union money poured into this race, the results look pretty darn fantastic thus far.

More updated Dane County results here. According to this, Madison city precincts aren't reporting at all yet.

“How so? State supreme courts can just go around voiding legislation they don’t like?”

Duh. That’s what left-wing judges do. Where have you been the last 50 years?

Yes, and if the RATS lose this, it helps the GOP in Washington regarding the shutdown battle - the Senate RATS up next year will be terrified.

Holding back votes is an old ‘rat trick - wait until you see how many you need, and then come up with that many.

>I can’t say I am really very optimistic myself, but if we lose here it is just one set back. A big one, but just one battle in a bigger war.

We need to start fighting the crap that’s going on, we need to “play dirty,” here’s one of my “evil” plans:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2698298/posts

>The problem here was, in my opinion, the way this was done allowed the unions/lefties/hippies a lot of time to get very organized and energized.

That’s one of the problems of the “conservative” mindset: we have an abnormal faith in “the system” and playing by the rules (though not using the rules [”ruthlessly”] to our full advantage).

>Personally I wish Walker and the GOP had passed repair bill the way the ultimately did within days of the fleebaggers leaving.

Personally, I wish that he’d have issued Writs of Election, which the WI Constitution allows him to do when vacancies arise in the Legislature. {Art 4, Sec 14; IIRC}
Then the Democrats would likely take to the Courts and argue that fleeing the state *wasn’t* vacating their seats.

>Oh well, what’s done is done. I think most pundits expect Prosser to lose, so if we win it will be monumental victory.

Perhaps.
Though I think we’ve been lulled into setting the bar quite low for the qualifier of “monumental.”

Yep. And the pubs and conservatives will sit there and take it just like they always do, instead of taking over the state supreme court with a sit-in and start bashing some thug heads the way we should.

They take advantage of us law-abiding citizens in the same way the terrorists take advantage of our open society and constitution to wreak their havoc and evil on our country.
