Yesterday, while Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz won their respective primaries in Wisconsin, another important story flew under the radar: Rebecca Bradley won a ten-year term to the state’s Supreme Court.
That list, as Rachel pointed out on this site, included:
■ “Perhaps AIDS Awareness should seek to educate us with their misdirected compassion for the degenerates who basically commit suicide through their behavior.”
■ “But the homosexuals and drug addicts who do essentially kill themselves and others through their own behavior deservedly receive none of my sympathy.”
■ “We’ve just had an election (in 1992) which proves the majority of voters are either totally stupid or entirely evil.”
■ “This brings me to my next point — why is a student government on a Catholic campus attempting to bring legitimacy to an abnormal sexual preference?”
■ “Heterosexual sex is very healthy in a loving marital relationship. Homosexual sex, however, kills.”
■ “I will certainly characterize whomever transferred their infected blood a homosexual or drug-addicted degenerate and a murderer.”
And now, after Governor Scott Walker appointed her to a temporary spot on the bench last fall to replace a deceased judge, Bradley won a ten-year term on the Supreme Court outright, defeating her opponent 52%-48%:
Justice Rebecca Bradley was elected Tuesday to a 10-year seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, defeating state Appeals Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg in a bitter, highly charged race.
Bradley told supporters at a election night party in Wauwatosa that she drew strength during the campaign from her fiance who, during tough moments of the spring campaign, quoted Winston Churchill.
“When you’re going through hell, keep going,” she said. Bradley also congratulated Kloppenburg for a “hard-fought campaign.”
I guess Wisconsin minorities hoping to preserve their civil liberties ought to “keep going” since they’re about to spend a decade in hell.
