Never another word from Republicans, conservatives and associated hypocrites about outside, outsized or outlandish money from special interests to influence Wisconsin politics.
Prosser's recount got ample funding
Lawyer who worked on justice's behalf has case pending before courtMadison - A Philadelphia philanthropist and his wife gave Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser $100,000 this spring for his recount effort, and three others gave a combined $100,000, records show.
A quirk of state election law allows candidates to receive unlimited sums during recounts, and Prosser used that opportunity impressively, campaign finance reports show. Over 13 days in April, he collected three $50,000 donations and two $25,000 donations.
In all, he raised $272,887 for his recount efforts. More than $75,000 went to the Troupis Law Office, which is headed by Jim Troupis and has a major First Amendment case before the court Prosser sits on.
Three legal experts said judges and justices cannot hear cases argued by attorneys who have recently done work for them. Prosser plans to remain on the case regardless.
