[Described is] the view of former Justice William Bablitch that she is "well out of the mainstream" in criminal matters. The ad concludes by noting Justice Abrahamson's votes in State v. Post, and In re the Commitment of Tory L. Rachel, in which she voted to strike down Wisconsin's sexual predator commitment statute.But, naturally, no revelation of Abrahamson's opinion in Rachel:*
I therefore agree with the conclusion reached by Justice Bablitch in his dissent.And what was Justice Bablitch's "inevitable" conclusion? He voted to strike down Wisconsin's sexual predator commitment statute.
Weirdest endorsement ever.
* This, by the way, is it in its entirety:
Justice Bradley's concurrence is very persuasive. In my opinion it leaves no doubt about the unconstitutionality of the statute. I therefore agree with the conclusion reached by Justice Bablitch in his dissent.And that, dear reader, is about as droll as it gets.
