Koschnick pulls a Gableman

Here we go. It was bound to happen.

At this afternoon's campaign forum featuring Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson and Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Randy Koschnick, the latter accused the Chief Justice of "voting with [criminal] defendants 60% of the time."

Let's just say that Koschnick's latest shenanigans are not going to endear him to a whole lot of people (present company adamantly included) and they're more evidence that he's clearly not planning on running the sort of "clean campaign" he'd "pledged" to run.

This blog will have more on today's forum, at which the Chief dusted Koschnick off pretty effectively, among other highlights forcing him to admit to a number of blindingly obvious double standards.

But in the meantime, here's some sense of déjà vu all over again featuring the comic numerology of the Hon. Michael Gableman:
Gableman said the 60% figure came from a study by an outside group.

"I don't know if the number is 30%, 60%, 80%, or 90%," he said, before adding, "I'm unaware of any study that contradicts those numbers."
Gableman v. Numbers

And here's hoping against hope that the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is not going to persist in reporting this garbled nonsense as uncritically as it did during last year's election campaign.
