The Key To Wisconsin: The Supreme Court Election

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 10, 2011

David Dayen speaks. You listen:

I hope the attention isn’t removed from that state Supreme Court election on April 5, which would tip the balance of power on the bench to the Democrats. Because these Republicans have shown that their response to the rules is to break them. Already today, rumors are flying about a bill that would change the recall requirements in Wisconsin. Now, I would imagine that would have to come in the form of a constitutional amendment, a process which would take a number of years and votes by successive legislatures and the people in a referendum. So I don’t see how that could affect the current recalls going forward. Nevertheless, there will almost surely be efforts to change the rules mid-stream, and those will have to be adjudicated. And they’ll probably work their way up to the state Supreme Court. And so the race between David Prosser and JoAnn Kloppenburg takes on that much more significance.

You know what to do.

Detailed contributions are available via the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. In a statement to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last month the bank said “Individual employees may choose, at their own discretion and based on their political beliefs, to make contributions to political campaigns.”
