Kloppenburg, Prosser exchange jabs over impartiality, qualifications

    Supreme Court Justice David Prosser and his opponent, Assistant AG JoAnne Kloppenburg, accused each other of low blows while charging the other of engaging in ethically dubious conduct during the campaign.
    Meeting at Marquette University Law School as part of its “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” series, the two had some of the sharpest exchanges over Kloppenburg’s Facebook page.
    Prosser accused Kloppenburg of using the page to link him with Gov. Scott Walker and controversial budget measures that might ultimately be challenged in the state Supreme Court.
    Prosser said those posting at the site have lobbed a series of attacks at him while trying to tie the Supreme Court election to the recent debate over Walker’s moves to roll back collective bargaining powers for most public employees. Others have also called for the recall of GOP state senators who supported the bill and charge that he wouldn’t be impartial on the legislation if it ended up before the court.
    Kloppenburg defended the Facebook page, saying she was not responsible for what others post there.
    "What people say on my Facebook page is what they say and there’s nothing untrue about what they are posting on my Facebook," she said.
