Now that the right wing echo chamber has put enough pressure on Sheriff Dave Mahoney that he has handed off the \"Prosser Choking\" investigation to his chief deputy. While Sheriff Mahoney probably would not have done the investigation himself anyway, the aggressiveness and fake outrage from the right was out in full force(I would link somewhere but you can see the exact same story on every right wing blog).
Now that precedence has been set in terms of ruling on something that might affect a person who you supported(or supported you) in an election, we are sure our friends on the far right will feel the same next time Justice Prosser has a case in front of him with similar “conflicts of interest”. In case they forgot who those people might be(research tends to get in the way of the “fine” folks at WPRI, I thought I would make it easy on them):
I would expect that if anyone on either of these lists, is associated with any case in front of Prosser, he will be recusing himself.
One last note: Justice Bradley asked Justice Prosser to get help with anger management! According to the right wing spin, it looks like Justice Prosser should be taking classes on how not to “accidentally” strangle co-workers.
