Walker stacks Prosser investigation panel with "fiercely conservative" shills
Now, Prosser's poor judgment, or utter lack of any judgment, is also in hot water. No matter how much the Bradley Center's Christian Schneider might try to obfuscate the issue, if not just fabricate things out of thin air, Prosser is still facing an investigation into the allegations that he put a chokehold on Justice Ann Walsh Bradley.
Well, Scott Walker wasn't going to just idly stand by and let Prosser fall victim to his own intemperate temper. No sirree, Bob! A tool like Prosser's rubber stamp was too valuable to let go that easy. After all, without Prosser on the bench, who knows what could happen? Walker might actually have to start following the law and the people might actually have their constitutional rights upheld. Walker couldn't have any of that.
But if they're not legal scholars, what are their qualifications to set on a commission investigating a Supreme Court Justice? Gard explained it this way in an email he sent to Walker: These are not people who require any hand holding - they are fiercely conservative and will never wimp out," Gard wrote. "There will be no surprises."
Of Barrette, Gard wrote: "I laid out what we were looking for and (he) said he would do it if needed."

I don't know why, but I was stunned by the bluntness and openness of Gard's memo....
The arrogance of this crowd is beyond anything I have ever witnessed.

6. Their arrogance is frightening. It makes me think they know something we don't...
... or do, like Diebold/ESS/Sequoia and can't get any light shining on it.
