There has been a lot of talk lately in the right-blogosphere about the importance of the upcoming Supreme Court election in Wisconsin, which is next week.
National unions and leftist groups have poured millions into attacking current Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, including a malicious advertisement accusing him of failing to properly investigate child abuse allegations 30 years ago. The victims in that case have come out against the ad and supported Prosser.
But the efforts in support of Prosser have been less than overwhelming. I never before have donated to Tea Party Express, but I am now because it is seeking to blanket the airwaves in Wisconsin this weekend with this excellent ad in support of Prosser:
Please join me in helping the effort. Donate here.
Update: Here is the plan:
We are buying every available airtime slot on Wisconsin TV – statewide – to run this ad. We need your help, urgently. With so little time we have to raise as much money as we can, so we can purchase this airtime for the TV ad. You can now donate to our Wisconsin State PAC.
And thanks to a commenter for this link to a National Review editorial:
Wisconsin supreme court justice David Prosser went to bed one night a respected former prosecutor, and woke up the next morning the target of a $3 million union-run smear campaign, falsely accused of being an enabler of pedophiles. That is what you get when you oppose the political machine that has been fleecing taxpayers in Wisconsin and elsewhere for a generation. Or, as in the case of Justice Prosser, when they suspect you might merely stand in their way and do your job.
Members of Wisconsin State Employees Union, AFSCME Council 24, have begun circulating letters to businesses in southeast Wisconsin, asking them to support workers’ rights by putting up a sign in their windows.
If businesses fail to comply, the letter says, “Failure to do so will leave us no choice but (to) do a public boycott of your business. And sorry, neutral means ‘no’ to those who work for the largest employer in the area and are union members.”
