At least he will do less damage there.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Haughney resigned from the post Nov. 6.


Interesting that the position Schimel will get results from a resignation on election day. My guess is that Haughney wanted his replacement named by Walker and not by Evers.

It's possible, but no one knew for sure that Walker had lost until the early hours of November 7.

I think the judge was hedging his bet. Probably wasn't going to stick around much longer anyways, and didn't want to take a chance that Evers would win. Judges in Waukesha are notoriously noted for taking the GOP side in political cases. Ask Scott Jensen about that.

well, folks can say that until they get busted doing twice the limit down county highway c in a car plastered with centre-left and radical bumper stickers or buying more than their limit of schedule v codeine cough syrup per 48 hours or whatever or getting a noise ticket from their operation of a booze-soaked swingers' club without a liquor permit -- i would not want to come up against the fucker in a situation where he has any kind of power . . .
