Lest We Forget: Justice Prosser's Re-Election Campaign Pledged To "Complement" GOP/Walker-era Victories

In the uproar following the Wisconsin Supreme Court's 4-3 ruling that validated the Walker union-busting bill's approval, and especially Justice David Prosser's controversial role in the ruling, let's not forget how his re-election campaign framed its intentions when it hired Brian Nemoir as campaign manager:

"Our campaign efforts will include building an organization that will return Justice Prosser to the bench, protecting the conservative judicial majority and acting as a common sense complement to both the new administration and Legislature."
Prosser later distanced himself from the release, but, with his key support for Walker and State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, is back with roles both complementary and complimentary.

The last paragraph of this post by a political science professor is a pithy summation of the dangers of this recklessness.

Separation of powers is what the Republican party is all about.

This is not separation of powers and Scott Walker is not a Republican.
