Roggensack's Obstruction of Assault against Colleague Strikes Chord

Cover-up of attack continues
Justice Pat Roggensack's run for re-election came up in a topic among several women meeting for breakfast near Madison recently.

The women—professional, educated, and liberal in political sensibility but not political junkies—were most reportedly offended not by Roggensack's embrace of the Republican Party's agenda and the GOP justices' decimation of Wisconsin's Open Meetings Law. Unfortunate, but true; they didn't really know much about GOP corruption.

What offended them was Roggensack's obstruction of holding David Prosser accountable for actually choking a fellow justice on June 13, 2011.

The choking incident was first reported by Bill Lueders, writing for the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism on June 25, 2011.

Holding Prosser accountable for physically attacking a woman in the workplace appears to be a no-brainer.

But Roggensack, along with Prosser's other two GOP colleagues, decided to block the recommendation of willful violations of ethics by the Wisconsin Judicial Commission, since packed with GOP partisans by Scott Walker.

Prosser attacks a female colleague and Roggensack covers up the crime by a sitting Wisconsin Supreme Court justice.

One hopes this would be seen by voters as an unforgiveable betrayal by Roggensack and her other GOP cohorts.
