    Applying The Weiner Test To The WI Sup Ct Scuffle

    Applying The Weiner Test To The WI Sup Ct Scuffle

    The facts are murky so far as to the alleged altercation between Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices David Prosser and Ann Walsh Bradley.

    Byron York and Ann Althouse have good round-ups of the competing leaks and press releases, and the highly suspicious involvement of Soros-funded “investigative” journalists in spreading the story.

    One thing is clear, however.  Only one of the Justices is asserting that a crime took place.  That Justice is Ann Walsh Bradley, who issued a press release claiming that “”[t]he facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold ….”

    Prosser has not alleged that a crime took place, and simply stated that the charges against him will be proven to be false.

    Now lets apply the Anthony Weiner test. 

    In the hours and days after the photo surfaced of a crotch-shot sent from his Twitter account, Weiner claimed that he was hacked, a criminal offense.  Yet Weiner refused to file a police report or notify various federal agencies that a crime had taken place.  Weiner apparently recognized that lying to the federal government was a crime, and he didn’t want to put himself in that position, so he simply lied to the public, which was not a crime.

    Fast forward to Wisconsin.  Justice Ann Walsh Bradley asserts that a serious crime took place, at a minimum a battery. 

    Has Bradley pressed charges?  Unlike Weiner, she knows the identity of the alleged perpetrator.  (Actually, Weiner knew there was no perpetrator, but from a public standpoint, he claimed not to know.) 

    It has been over a week since the incident, and while reports indicate the chief of the Capitol Police was notified by someone, that is a far cry from pressing charges. 

    If Bradley has not pressed charges, why not?  Inquiring minds want to know.

    God, lawyers kill me. Only when two lawyers get in a fight do we have some kind of huge meltdown. This is the real world. People fight and not everybody gets arrested, sued or fired.

    Both should go back to their corners and stop crying like little girls. What “crime” was committed that needs a legal remedy? Anyone hurt? No. Was there criminal intent? No.

    As a long time police detective and veteran of the street, I would not arrest anyone, charge anyone or even do a report. I might throw cold water on everybody and tell them to go home and sleep it off, but that would be it.

    Obviously, the Left is trying to twist this into another way to “get” Prosser. Frankly, that would be a defense for him if he were to be charged. How do we know she didn’t plan it. Lord knows, it would not be the first time a woman claimed a man did harm or set him up so he got arrested.

    What I don’t understand is how anyone in that meeting wanted to let the outside world know they act like children. They’re SP’s for God’s sake. You’d think somewhere along the line they would have learned restraint and decency and the ability to argue with resorting to fisticuffs.

    What, are they ten years old?

      there is only one lawyer crying like a girl. Her name is Bradley.
      Prosser has been silent. He has not opened up and he has not made allegations of any kind. The witnesses have made comments. It would seem that Abrahamson supports Bradley and others present support Prosser.
