Here we go again

A while back we suggested the Left might try to pull an ambush in this spring’s state Supreme Court election by quietly organizing its government-union base, keeping things publicly low-key, and surprising Justice Patience Roggensack in a low-turnout contest.

We clearly overestimated the Left’s capacity for disciplined subtlety.

Two candidates filed this month to challenge Roggensack. Both signed last year’s petition to recall Governor Scott Walker. Get ready for another brawl.

Last week the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted a few revealing things about the challengers.

Lemon-law lawyer Vince Megna has churned out anti-Walker Internet videos and denounces the idea of a nonpartisan court.  He says he supported the recall because Walker signed legislation tightening product liability standards.  Translation: Walker made it a bit more demanding for Megna to score jackpot jury awards against supposedly deep-pocket defendants.

Equally revealing is a statement by Marquette law professor Ed Fallone’s campaign manager Melissa Mulliken, suggesting Fallone wouldn’t hesitate to judge cases against Walker, whom he tried to drive from office just last year.

Melissa Mulliken was the campaign mouthpiece who orchestrated Joanne Kloppenburg’s spring 2012 attempt to unseat Justice David Prosser.

That race wasn’t about Prosser, and this one isn’t about Roggensack. It’s never been about anything except overturning the 2010 elections and handing Wisconsin back to the government unions.
