Even though it's barely gotten started
Drop the Wisconsin Judicial Commission complaint against Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, urges the deep thinkers at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board. "Under normal procedure, the court would appoint a panel of three appeals court judges who would hear the case," they claim. What is "normal procedure"? Well, they don't say.
Presumably the edit board is relying on unsubstantiated claims made by Justice Prosser and his attorneys and reported by the Journal-Sentinel. In fact those are the main premises underlying the Journal-Sentinel's argument, if indeed one can straighfacedly call it an argument at all.
But the Wisconsin statutes clearly say that the chief judge of the court of appeals shall appoint the panel. And apparently the Journal-Sentinel couldn't care less for the law, so often has its falsehood been repeated.
Prosser is a Republican whose reelection the Journal-Sentinel supported.
Because, as the edit board offered at the time, "he is a good writer."
