Legislation By Other Means: Voiding Judicial Elections

When Ziegler and Gableman were elected to SCOWI, the Left was apoplectic. After all, SCOWI was a reliable ally of the Statist Left; when they could not get their way in the Legislature, they simply went to the courts to steamroll the will of the people.

Recently, some tool/attorney filed a petition seeking to remove Gableman from various cases before SCOWI, arguing that his 'anti-crime' position would affect his judgment.

WMC fought back.

On October 16, 2009 Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce filed a Petition and supporting memorandum with the Wisconsin Supreme Court asking that contributions independent of a judicial candididates campaign not be grounds for recusal.

There are a bunch of interesting characters filing petitions on this. It should include citizens who vote and merely pay taxes......
