Prosser Chokes

Justice Ann Bradley

Bizarre story out of Wisconsin, where conservative Justice David Prosser - who just narrowly and some say questionably won re-election - has been accused of physically assaulting fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley with a chokehold around her neck in an argument about Gov. Walker's anti-union bill. Prosser is apparently a serial hot-head who earlier admitted to calling Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson a "bitch" and threatening to "destroy" her; he said it was "entirely warranted" because she tried to bully and embarrass him. He has denied the latest charge and said Bradley attacked him. Innocent until proven guilty and all, but just in case: Here are four ways to get him out of office.

"The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold. You can try to spin those facts and try to make it sound like I ran up to him and threw my neck into his hands, but that’s only spin.”

Update and Bonus: Greta Van Susteren thinks the solution here is to fire that bitch Abrahamson. Only on Fox.
