In announcing their endorsement of Justice David Prosser for another term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the folks over at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel cited Prosser’s “even temperament” as part of their rationale for their endorsement.
However, while the folks from the Journal Sentinel editorial board may think Justice Prosser possesses an “even temperament,” he’s certainly not shy about calling Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson a bitch. Asked to explain his statement about Chief Justice Abrahamson, Prosser has not backed down from his statement, instead attempting to assert that he’s the victim of Justice Abrahamson’s attempts to goad people into perhaps incautious statements.
Here’s Justice Prosser on Monday night explaining why he wasn’t in the wrong for calling Chief Justice Abrahamson a bitch:
I guess Justice Prosser’s “even temperament” doesn’t include an ability to apologize for calling a female coworker a bitch, nor does it include an ability to deal with “difficult coworkers” in a manner befitting someone who holds the seat Justice Prosser holds.
