Walker Telegraphed Budget Vetoes, So Supreme Court Assault Allegations Will Lead The News
Walker's budget vetoes are certainly important - - and that he signed the budget at a Green Bay firm from which the public was barred speaks volumes about his isolation from voters- - but many of his line-item deletions were announced in advance, so their news value is reduced.
Look next week instead for more attention paid to the conflicting accounts of a physical confrontation in State Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley's office apparently witnessed by six Justices.
They were discussing whether to affirm Gov. Walker's controversial bill (they did, 4-3) that virtually ended collective bargaining for public employees and weakened their unions.
Either conservative Justice David Prosser put liberal Bradley in a choke hold - - as she claims and Prosser denies - - or Prosser raised his hands to ward off a charging Bradley and she ran into his hands, as unnamed witnesses claim.
Prosser supported the Walker bill, Walsh did not, and there is a history of tension between Prosser, and two liberal female Justices - - Bradley and Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.
Prosser had earlier called Abrahamson "a total bitch" and said both women bullied him.
You would think, wouldn't you? But apparently not on jsonline.com.
