And yes that is my personal opinion…but I am not relying on my opinion to write this post. The incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice (incumbent by virtue of an ethically questionable appointment to the bench by Governor Scott Walker) Rebecca Bradley has been identified as not qualified to be a state supreme court justice by…the Milwaukee Bar Association. Essentially a panel of her peers:
A majority of area lawyers who responded to an annual Milwaukee Bar Association survey feel Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley is unqualified for her job.
Bradley received 138 “not qualified” votes to 120 “qualified” and 27 “no opinion” votes.
Ouch…that’s got to leave a mark. But if those numbers don’t look ‘so bad’ to you…this is where her opponent ranked:
Her challenger, Court of Appeals Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg, scored 203 qualified, 48 unqualified and 37 no opinions.
When the poll was brought up in a recent debate, this is what Justice Bradley had to say:
Bradley responded, “We can all breathe a sigh of relief that 120-some partisan lawyers in Milwaukee County will not decide this election.”
Was she referring to the 120 lawyers that said she was qualified?
