So wrote “fair and unbiased” Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley as a student at Marquette University in 1992:
After her hate-filled writings were made public, Justice Bradley issued an apology for what she wrote.
“To those offended by comments I made as a young college student, I apologize, and assure you that those comments are not reflective of my worldview,” Bradley said in a statement. “These comments have nothing to do with who I am as a person or a jurist, and they have nothing to do with the issues facing the voters of this state.”
“I am frankly embarrassed at the content and tone of what I wrote those many years ago,” Bradley said in the statement, in which she also said she wrote them as “a very young student.”
While many will defend Bradley by noting the decades that have passed since she wrote her hate-filled screeds, as JoAnne Kloppenburg noted, “There is no statute of limitations on hate.”
